Archie Comics And Webtoon Partner For ‘Big Ethel Energy’

by Brendan M. Allen

Archie Comics has partnered with Webtoon to collaborate and develop its next comic series, Big Ethel Energy. Featuring the talents of writer Keryl Brown Ahmed and artist Siobhan Keenan, Big Ethel Energy showcases the Riverdale character as fans have never seen her before. The first three episodes of the series will launch exclusively on Webtoon on September 21, 2021 with new episodes of the series rolling out weekly on the platform.

‘After graduating from Riverdale High, Ethel couldn’t get away from her hometown — and onto her chosen career path — fast enough. When the Mayor of Riverdale pays her handsomely to write a history of the city, she can’t wait to return to take down Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and all the other Riverdale natives who made her life hell all those years ago. The only thing she forgets to consider is… maybe they’ve all changed, too.’

”We’re so excited for this partnership with Webtoon,” said Archie Comics Senior Director of Editorial Jamie L. Rotante. “The work they’ve been doing is incredible, and the modern sensibilities they bring to their storytelling, along with the gorgeous and colorful art, aligns perfectly with Archie’s vision. It’s been amazing working with Webtoon and watching the evolution of Ethel take shape.”

Check out the first 3 episodes of Big Ethel Energy on September 21 on Webtoon.
