- Really? March 4
Girls star and scribe Lena Dunham is set to write a four-part Archie comic. After hearing that she was a huge fan of the series, Archie's new chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa sent Dunham "a box of tons of Archie books," he tells Comic Book Resources. "She devoured them all, and maybe a week or two later came back with her pitch." The still-untitled series will hit shelves in 2015. So far, Dunham is mum on whether it will be Betty or Veronica who becomes the voice of her generation. --Catherine Garcia
