April 19, 2005, Runnemede, NJ - Images and information were
released today concerning the first item created under an
arrangement between Archie Publications and Dynamic Forces
concerning the classic comic book character Archie.
The first item to be released - a Lithograph -- under the
arrangement not only features a classic scene available for
the first time ever in this format, but it unites a classic
and legendary artist with the venerable characters from Riverdale
for the first time ever for DF! And best of all, this premiere
lithograph is a Direct Market Exclusive, and will not be available
outside of the direct market from Dynamic Forces!
"As the deal was coming together, we had an idea of
what we wanted to do to start the program," explained
Nick Barrucci, President of Dynamic Forces. "And what
better way to start things off than by putting John Romita
Sr. - certainly well known for the comic book love triangle
of Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy and Mary Jane Watson - on another
equally famous triangle of Betty, Veronica and Archie Andrews.
This classic image is now a modern classic, being so meticulously
crafted by the living master. And to add a little icing to
the cake, this litho is limited to the direct market, so that
retailers can maximize the potential of this awesome Archie
piece of memorabilia"
The Lithograph scheduled for shipping in June and available
now for PRE-ORDER from your local specialty shop, is a Direct
Market Exclusive (we know we mentioned this, but reinforcement
can't hurt ?), the first of a projected series.
"We'd like to keep producing these exclusively for comic
fans," continued Barrucci, "And we hope that the
support exists out there to let us do more lithos just for
the comics market."
