Q&A about Gisele's Archie work

Post by Giz » Wed Jul 25, 2012 4:25 am

No update today (too busy signing books).
Decided to do a small Archie promo for Archie #635.

I created this thread in case you have questions related to my Archie work.
Let's keep it clean and civil :)

How soon will we lose you to the Americans? :((

I'm actually relieved! The samples show they pretty much stuck with your style. They didn't go heavy on the inking, and yet maintained the traditional "Archie" look.

Don't be surprised if you become one of their lead artists for the "heavy" issues. I remember when reading the old Archie digests some thirty years ago that the more serious and dramatic stories always got the better artists. You're definitely following that path. Congratulations!

Now why does Betty look so much like Didi? :p

I thought Ronnie looked a little like Didi, Kevin looked very on-model, Archie had some expressions we've seen on Gary and Junghan, and Andy looked a bit like Ash.

No, this isn't actually a porn movie. But not everyone seems to have noticed that.

I love how it's completely Archie and yet we can see your style shine through with their facial expressions so easily :)

Archie looks a lot like Clarence!

(Ten thousand points to anyone who gets that extremely old and obscure reference! :p )

I thought so too! And the blond chic reminded me of Tiff for a sec there, too! :)

I love the fact that the second issue you are doing apparently involves Archie turning into a girl.

For me, the weirdest thing is the lettering. Always a bit of a shock when the art style remains pretty much the same (from EC/MA3/earlyMC, etc) but the lettering is different. I'd probably faint if I saw Usagi Yojimbo lettered by anyone other than Stan Sakai.

I'm itching to get to a comic book store (none close) and pick this up.

Actually installed the Archie app, though the issue isn't there yet...

EDIT: It's there now...

The "Archie" girls look so sophisticated and beautiful when Giz draws them.
And good luck to Shouri in Baltimore. :-)

Is it just me, or does Veronica look a lot like Cyndi from P&A?
