Lena Dunham to write for Archie Comics

Riverdale, get ready for a hipster invasion!

“Girls” creator Lena Dunham is going to write a four-part story for Archie Comics. According to a press release, the story, to be published in 2015, will be about what happens when the eponymous redhead and his gang encounter a reality show filming in their town.

“I was an avid Archie collector as a child- conventions, first editions that l 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,” Dunham said.

Obviously we aren’t expecting any nudity or cocaine binges. This is PG-rated “Archie,” not “Girls,” right? Well, that’s what we thought until we saw the promotional poster. Look familiar?

Here’s the promotional Archie Comics image for Dunham’s comics debut:

Will Dunham’s raucous behavior change Riverdale forever? We can’t wait to snuggle up in our beds with a flashlight and find out.
