Official Press Release
As most Archie fans know, this is not the company's first venture in the realm of manga. And the unprecedented success of Archie's manga-style Sabrina the Teenage Witch has left readers anxious for more.
Like many of the timeless characters from the Archie line, Josie and the Pussycats Manga will appear in both digests and standard comic book formats. The girls will make their manga debut with cat tails waggin' in the pages of Tales From Riverdale Digest #3, shipping June 8.
Josie will keep the momentum going with a second appearance in Sabrina the Teenage Witch #68, which ships June 29.
Both stories feature the critically-acclaimed writing of regular Sabrina the Teenage Witch writer Tania del Rio with on the rise manga artist Chris Lie. Adding a touch of veteran inks will be Andrew Pepoy, hot off the pages of G.I. Joe. Overseeing the whole shebang will be none other than editors Nelson Ribeiro and Victor Gorelick, who promise the blending of Josie and manga will be "purrr-fect"!
