Lena Dunham - Lena Dunham To Write Archie Comic Series
Actress Lena Dunham is set to expand her media empire by writing a comic book series.
The Girls star will pen a four-part Archie storyline, based on her Tv show's characters, which will be released in 2015.
A statement from the actress reads, "I was an avid Archie collector as a child... 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 isn't the first celebrity to enter the comic book world - in 2010, actor Samuel L. Jackson wrote a four-part series titled Cold Space and Patton Oswalt has penned pieces for Batman, The Goon and Treehouse of Horror. Guy Ritchie and Nicolas Cage have also helped create graphic books.
