Coming Soon to Archie Comics: REGGIE & ME Ongoing Series!!!

I learned some great news earlier today: Archie Comics will be publishing a new comic book series featuring Reggie Mantle. REGGIE & ME will feature writing by Tom DeFalco with art by Sandy Jarrell, Kelly Fitzpatrick, and Jack Morelli!

Here is how the series is described:
There is no one more loved, revered, admired and adored in Riverdale than... Reggie Mantle? Well, at least Reggie doesn't think there's anyone as loved and admired as himself. And his best friend can back that idea up -- his best friend, of course, being his dog, Vader. The unstoppable duo is known around town for pulling the funniest pranks, getting the hottest dates and throwing the best parties. And if anyone even dares to compete with them, there is going to be hell to pay. Come take a look at the life of your hero, the handsome, hilarious Reggie Mantle.
I have to admit that I'm a bit sad to see Runty replaced by Vader. But they're essentially the same dog. Maybe they decided that Vader sounds more bad-ass than Runty. Which is dog. Still...

ARCHIE, JUGHEAD, LIFE WITH KEVIN, BETTY & VERONICA, JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS, and now REGGIE & ME. I'm pretty excited these days with all of the new titles that Archie Comics is publishing these days.

REGGIE & ME is scheduled for publication is early December.

Would think "Runty" would be less trademark-problem-laden than "Vader"...

Agreed. 100%

Personally I'm a cat person I have 5 cats. But how involved will his dog will be? You can't bring a dog to school. We will only see Vadar at home. I can't wait for this comic.
