Archie Comics

TV actress/producer and creator of the HBO comedy-drama, “Girls,” Lena Dunham, is branching out into comics. Dunham has signed on to write a four-part series for the Archie Comics. The 27-year-old Dunham talked about being a long-time time fan of the comics, in a quote from a statement, which appeared on Galleycat:”I was an avid Archie collector as a child — conventions, first editions that I kept in plastic sleeves, the whole shebang. 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.”

In 2013, Dunham won a Golden Globe for best performance by an actress in a TV series or musical or comedy.  Her Archie series is due out next year. More here.
