For when you’re bored of just streaming music on a… music streaming service, you can take part in a new moving comic experience because why not Spotify?
Spotify have just added a new, exclusive experience offering you a non musical experience on the world’s favourite music streaming service. Spotify have added six motion comics of Archie, based on the original comic and the TV series Riverdale taking the format beyond it’s paper constrictions with music and voice acting.
The comic’s six issues are available in Spotify’s mobile app and each one is roughly ten minutes long. When you go to watch/read an episode it will begin and you will read, hear and experience the comic thanks to it’s digital upgrade. It’s presented in the same way as Spotify’s visual podcasts from earlier this year and can be found under Spotlight: Archie – The New Riverdale.
Archie Comics Publisher/CEO Jon Goldwater said: “Archie has always been about trying to find new ways to get comics to fans and readers. And when the opportunity to work with Spotify arose, it was a perfect match. Being able to reposition these modern classics for new readers in this unique, motion comic format makes perfect sense and we can’t wait for fans to experience these beloved Archie stories in a new way.”
The series will be based on the bestselling arc by writer Mark Waid and artists Fiona Staples, Annie Wu, and Veronica Fish. The first six issues will each get their own motion comic episode. They’re completely tricked out, with voice acting and music to complement the sequential art. These episodes were made to look especially amazing on mobile devices.
