Archie - Issue 656 (Cover + Info)

This is out June 18, 2014. The issue introduces Harper. This will be the first appearance of a disabled character in Archie comics (Harper is featured sitting in a pink wheelchair on the cover). The inspiration for Harper was based on author Jewel Katz. Check out the full cover and statement Katz made about the new Archie character.

I’ve been DYING to share this news with you. I finally got the green light! If you know anything about me, you’re well aware that I’m a HUGE fan of “Archie Comics”. Well…I have MAJOR news. Yours truly (me!), has directly inspired a new character in “Archie Comics”. She’s created by comic genius/wizard, Dan Parent. This man is a legend in the comics world. Harper is his mastermind, and the cousin of, Veronica Lodge. She’s eccentric, a fashionable diva and a wheelchair-user. (Does this sound like someone else? Hmmm.) Harper will be launched in issue #656 of “Archie”. It hits newsstands on June 4th. Show your support! P.s. Do you think Harper and I, look alike???
