The Road to Riverdale: Archie Panel

The CW’s Riverdale has become a hit by adapting one of the most unlikely pieces of source material: the all-American line of Archie Comics.

In this panel listen to artist Dan Parent cover his experience working at Archie comics and his takes on the new evolution of the characters.
