Spotify Adds 'Spotlight Archie -- The New Riverdale' Visual Comic
by Dylan Blight
In Archie comics attempt to get the Riverdale experience into the hands, ears and eyes of more people, you can now listen to and watch a visual comic on Spotify entitled Spotlight Archie -- The New Riverdale.
The six-episode series ranging from ten to fifteen minutes each was created by Madefire, who specialises in digital and motion books. They have adapted the first six issues of the 2015 series reboot from writer Mark Waid with artists Fiona Staples, Annie Wu, and Veronica Fish.
Although an interesting premise, the fullscreen video in Spotify on your laptop or PC runs only vertically, and when I ran it on my phone the image wouldn't fit the screen properly.
It'll be interesting to see if Spotify continues to add new visual comics in the future.
