Katy Keene, The Web return to Archie Comics this summer

From Archie Comics

Fresh from the excitement of ARCHIE & FRIENDS #107, where Katy Keene starred as the Web's love interest in a mega-blockbuster movie production, Katy is back for another issue of high-flying heroics! In “Four Color Fun,” Katy is clearly a hero to the many fans who show up to meet her at the mammoth California Comic-con, where she's promoting her epic "Web Returns" film. While there, she sets out on a comics quest of her own that's sure to be as thrilling as her celluloid exploits!

Since her comeback in a special story created exclusively for Free Comic Book Day 2005, Katy has been entertaining fans in the pages of ARCHIE & FRIENDS. The Web recently had a comeback of his own, on the website in a serialized story called “AJVB & The Web,” as well other website features. He was also a prominent figure when the super-heroic Mighty Crusaders guest-starred in the pages of Archie's Weird Mysteries.

Together, the team of Katy Keene and the Web is reminiscent of the Mighty Comics days when The Web was married to his ever-concerned wife Rosie, who when she wasn’t henpecking him due to his dangerous spandex-life and lack of attention, donned a costume herself and joined her husband just for some togetherness! While it’s Katy who takes center stage here to the “fictional” Web, fans of Archie’s “ultra heroes” comics will still get a kick out of seeing one of the most popular heroes of yesteryear star in the latest “super-film” to hit the multi-plex!
