Besides the actors, we also spoke with writer-producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. He told us how the serialized Riverdale is different from its Archie Comics source material, how modernizing the Archie world will affect adapting storylines, and the challenge to remain true to the characters. Watch below to learn more.
If you don’t recognize his name, you probably know some of the things Roberto’s worked on. Besides Riverdale, Roberto has written for Fox’s Glee and HBO’s Big Love. He currently writes for Archie Comics and has written for Marvel Comics, and he adapted Stephen King’s The Stand into a comic.
