Lena Dunham Plans 'Archie' Comic Books

Fantasies do come true — if you’re Lena Dunham.

The “Girls” creator will reportedly be writing a story four-issue for “Archie,” the iconic comic featuring everyone’s favorite carrot-top. Dunham has previously spoken of her love for the comic and her desire to be involved in its production.

From the New York Times:

“I was an avid Archie collector as a child — conventions, first editions that I kept in plastic sleeves, the whole shebang,” Dunham said in a statement. “It has so much cultural significance but also so much personal significance, and to get to play with these beloved characters is a wild creative opportunity.”

Though the comic isn’t set for release until the spring of 2015, the promotional art released by Archie Comics looks ominously like the original Season 1 poster for “Girls.” Maybe it’s time to bring out the R (rated) in Riverdale.
