Archie Comics is bringing back Katy Keene, “the fashion queen”, beginning in July. I’m excited to see that they’re continuing a long comic book tradition, one previously thought extinct due to legal concerns: letting fans contribute. Here’s an excerpt from their PR:
Katy Keene is Hollywood’s newest Superstar, and at only 21 is appearing in movies and on TV, modeling for magazines, and recording hit records. Katy lives in Hollywood with her teenage sister, MacKenzie, where’s she’s romantically pursued by movie producer, Rodney VanRonson. Katy also has an apartment in New York City, where K.O. Kirby, extreme-sports star, hopes to win her heart. And always hoping to upstage Katy in both showbiz and romance is her rival, Gloria Gold.
Katy, along with these friends and others, lives the glamorous and fast-paced life of red carpets and movie studios, traveling to the fantastic places of the world, but Katy needs your help. She needs ideas for what to wear to Hollywood premieres or just around the house, as well as ideas for her friends, too! And where should she go? And what should she do in her movies and adventures? Part of the fun is up to you, the readers, so please send your designs and ideas to Katy by email, fax or mail to:
325 Fayette Ave.
Mamaroneck, New York 10543
And please send your name so that Katy can give you credit if she uses your suggestion. Keep an eye out for Katy’s upcoming stories in Archie Comics titles to see if she’s using your idea and giving you the credit you deserve!
That’s a great way to encourage readership and involvement with the characters. (And judging from the outfit shown, she could use the help, since she’s wearing a stripper skirt. Note: image has been replaced. The skirt in the original picture was short and had a slit up one side to show even more leg.)
