Archie Comic Publications has appointed CPLG as licensing agent in Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and Latin America for the iconic Archie Comics Universe.
Archie Comics is home to some of the most popular comic characters, including Archie Andrews, Jughead, Betty and Veronica, Josie and the Pussycats and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, in addition to the Riverdale comic book collection.
CPLG will develop a licensing programme targeting teens and adults, with an initial focus on apparel and accessories, utilising artwork from the Riverdale, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Josie & the Pussy Cats comic books.
The Riverdale comics offer a bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, Josie & the Pussycats and their friends, exploring small-town life and the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade.
The Archie Comics line is one of the most successful, longest running brands in the history of the comic industry, having sold over two-billion comics worldwide and published in 12 languages. The popularity of the Archie Comics characters has spilled over into other media, including animation, television, film and music.
