Not a lot has been said about Nick Spencer‘s upcoming Archie run – which kicks off next month in the much-ballyhooed Archie #700. Everyone’s been exceedingly polite, as we end Mark Waid‘s lengthy tenure and move into Spencer’s. How will Nick’s Archie take differ? It’s been unclear – until now. We think.
Based on covers for Archie #702, which hit in January, it seems like Riverdale‘s favorite teen – and star of the CW’s Riverdale TV show – might be hooking up with the magically-inclined girl from one town over, Sabrina…who also happens to be starring in her own TV series, Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, launching this month.
Take a look at the covers yourself. They look pretty cozy, no?
