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.

Archie Meets Predator first look

Predator on film has faced off against Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ridley Scott’s Aliens.  In the comics, the list goes on and on, from Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens, to Tarzan vs. Predator, to even Superman/Batman vs Alien & Predator.  And who could forget Predator vs My Little Pony, Predator vs BarbiePredator vs Hello Kitty, and Predator vs Itty Bitty Hellboy?  (OK, we made up those last ones).

Archie has had a similar spree of unlikely mash-ups, like Archie Meets KISS, The Punisher Meets Archie, and (gasp!) Archie Meets Glee.  Better yet, Archie had his own unofficial Walking Dead tribute with Afterlife with Archie–one we’ve raved about plenty here at borg.com.

Archie Meets Predator is not taking the dark path you’d think you’d get from Dark Horse Comics or even from Archie Comics based on their success with Afterlife With Archie or forthcoming Sabrina series.  Archie Meets Predator seems to be lighter fare based on the press release this week:
