After 70 years, Archie Andrews is about to start speaking Spanish. Archie Comics says the Riverdale gang is so popular in the Spanish-speaking world, they’re finally launching digital Spanish language versions of some titles. CEO Jon Goldwater says it gives Spanish readers a chance to experience “the American Dream… It’s the the typical small town America where there’s plenty of food and everyone is sheltered”.
- So everyone in America is fed and sheltered? What country is Mr. Goldwater living in?!
- In the version to be released in Mexico, Archie and Veronica are kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel.
- “Jughead” will be known as “Jose-head”.
