Tag Archive: 60th anniversary Sabrina


 

With almost a month left of summer, those kids going back to school means Halloween will soon be in the air, and Archie Comics is bringing NINE issues for Halloween, with four holiday treats from horror imprint Archie Horror.  Get ready for standalone one-shot issues anyone can dive into.  Just in time for Sabrina’s 60th anniversary, her black cat familiar Salem gets his own story in Chilling Adventures of Salem, kid readers are the focus of Fear the Funhouse, a classic title is back in Return of Chilling Adventures in Sorcery, and finally, Archie and friends go the way of The X-Files in Chilling Adventures Presents… Weirder Mysteries (what a great title!).  Plus five classic-style new Archie books with a Halloween or fall theme.

Check out the covers, and a look inside below, and take a look at a surprise from Archie Comics: a continuation of the Netflix Chilling Adventures of Sabrina television series, which ended after its fourth season, heading your way in a new comic book series.  It’s all part of the 60th anniversary of Sabrina Spellman in the pages of Archie Comics.
