Archie Comics to Re-Launch Superhero Imprint as Dark Circle Comics

dark circleArchie Comics plans to re-launch their superhero imprint under a new name, Dark Circle Comics. This division was previously known as Red Circle Comics.

The executives plan to announce some of the new work-in-progress titles on the Dark Circle list at this year’s Comic Con International: San Diego event. Alex Segura, who serves as senior vice president of publicity and marketing, has been named editor of this imprint.

Co-CEO and publisher Jon Goldwater had this statement in the press release: ”This is a fresh start and a new direction for these iconic characters. It all boils down to story – tales that feature compelling characters by some of the best talent in comics. Alex – with the help of myself, our President Mike Pellerito, CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and Editor Paul Kaminski – has carefully curated a line of comics that will hopefully be seen as the definitive interpretations of these characters for a long time. We couldn’t be more excited.”
