Thanks to a recent partnership with Nerdist, Spotify’s library now includes a new series of motion comics based on the revamped Archie comics.

The first six issues feature music and voice acting accompanied by original comic illustrations. While fans of Riverdale might be familiar with some of the characters, this motion comic series will focus more on the comic storylines. Sorry, CW fans.

To enjoy the comics, Spotify users can login to the app on their mobile device, press play, and watch as the episode begins. Each issue features audio and text displayed on screen, which makes its way through the panels at a pretty steady pace.

Best part of it all: The first six motion comics are available now under the title Spotlight: Archie—The New Riverdale. Each 10-minute ‘sode is pretty fun to watch, since the autoplay feature lets you listen to the comic and not have your eyes glued to the screen at all times.

While Spotify’s venture into non-musical content might seem new, it’s not. A couple years ago, the streaming service took a shot at expanding into video. This past January, they announced a partnership with media companies to make visual podcasts and audio snippets—both of which appealed more to users. So far, podcast streaming has been more successful than some of their past video initiatives.
