From Wall St. to our nation’s capital, the Occupy movement has been represented in many corners of the country and beyond. Now as AOL’s Comics Alliance reports, the latest locale to take up a position on the growing cause is none other than Archie’s hometown of Riverdale!

The coverage for Occupy Riverdale is stacking up with The Beat, Think Progress, Death and Taxes, Big Shiny Robot and Mental Floss all reporting on this new development. The variant cover from Eisner award winning painter Jill Thompson debuted yesterday at Bleeding Cool and offers a taste of what lies beyond the cover. So what can fans expect when Occupy hits Riverdale? Only time will tell but you can be sure it will have a distinctive Archie flair to it! The Occupy Riverdale story will follow the Archie Marries Valerie arc with Archie #635 in July 2012 with words by Archie Meets KISS writer Alex Segura and art by Gisele Lagace.
