Tag Archive: Archie Horror


If you’re enjoying CW’s new Riverdale series as much as we are, then you probably have a new appreciation for Archie’s pal Jughead Jones.  The classic Jughead has always had an insatiable appetite, practically living at the Riverdale diner.  Actually we wouldn’t be surprised to see him move into the back of the joint on the television series since he lost his home at the drive-in theater, which recently closed.  This month Archie Comics is taking Jughead to a dark place and asks: What if Jughead’s hunger came from a sinister place?

When a murderous menace is on the prowl, taking the lives of some of the most well-known and esteemed inhabitants of Riverdale, Jughead and his family’s dark legacy comes to light. 

It’s Jughead: The Hunger.  It’s a story that will be a prime target for fans of the successful and popular series Afterlife With Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

ChillingAdventuresOfSabrina_06-0

The groundbreaking series continues.  Archie Comics’ imprint Archie Horror is releasing the next issue of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in comic book stores everywhere tomorrow.  “Familiars” is a great perfect jumping-on point for new, mature readers (for sex, violence, gore, hangings, occult, etc.) and fans of the horror genre.

Every witch needs a familiar, and through the ages, Salem has faithfully fulfilled his duties to Sabrina.  This chapter lifts back the cloak of time to reveal the dark history of how Salem (the cat “familiar”) came to be and serve his master.

The ongoing series continues with script by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, artwork by Robert Hack and Jack Morelli, and that great pulp, retro-style cover by Robert Hack.  A variant cover is also available, by artist Andrew Pepoy.
