Announced in July, the crossover concept will be written by comics writer and Glee co-producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by Parent. Said Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater, "If you go back to the beginnings of modern music, if you will, with Elvis and moving forward with the Beatles and [Bob] Dylan – they established culturally the tone of what's going on in the country. That's what I've been trying to establish in Riverdale. The characters stay the same, but Riverdale changes. And as musicians change in the culture, they can seamlessly integrate into comic books."
