Archie Comics Announces Archie Horror Imprint


Archie Comics is putting out books that are really, really good. Their streak continues with the insanity that is Archie vs. Predator #1, but it certainly won't stop there. When Afterlife with Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina return, they'll do so under the new Archie Horror imprint this spring. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack will be hitting store shelves on April 15th, followed by Afterlife With Archie #8 by Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla on May 6th.

In speaking on the return of the series, Aguirre-Sacasa teased the debut of a third series in the Archie Horror line and spoke of the fan response to the titles: “[The Archie Horror books] have prompted the best work of our careers,” says Aguirre-Sacasa. “To take these iconic characters and reimagine them and place them in situations they’ve never been in before—it’s a blast, and I’m glad people are responding to it.”
