Archie Comics brings horror home for the holidays!

Archie Comics is wishing everyone a very scary holiday season with an all-new one-shot comic, Happy Horrordays, hitting store shelves (and stockings) in December! The horror anthology features a return to the world of the hit Archie Horror series Jughead: The Hunger by creators Frank Tieri and Joe Eismaalong with two more tales of yuletide terror bound to keep you up at night hoping that sound on the roof is who you think it is.

Setting up his offering, Tieri said, “In ‘‘Twas the Night Before the Hunger,’ X-Mas turns into an X-Massacre when Jughead finds himself up against none other than a pissed off Krampus one fine Christmas morn. It’s a nice little tale of ho-ho-horror where we may see more than just Christmas cookies and hamburgers getting eaten.” In Tieri’s Jughead: The Hunger series, Jughead is a werewolf, and we were treated to another trip back to that fan-favorite universe in Chilling Adventures Presents… Weirder Mysteries, a sci-fi horror one-shot released in September.

In the second story, inspired by Icelandic folklore by writer Joanne Starer and artist Butch Mapaa terrifying cryptid teams up with Sheila Wu, a character introduced in the now-classic “New Kids Off the Wall” storyline by Alex Simmons and Dan Parent in 2010.

Rounding out the special holiday issue is a terrifying twist on a staple Archie Christmas character, Sugar Plum, Santa’s fairy helper, by writer Joe Corallo and artist Patrick Piazzalunga.

Happy Horrordays, with colors by Matt Herms and lettering by Jack Morelli, releases December 14 in comic shops nationwide and is available for pre-order now. It will feature a cover by Adam Gorham and an open-to-order variant cover by Archie Horror legend Robert Hack.

Chilling Adventures Presents… Weirder Mysteries

It’s a “Month of Mayhem” from Archie Horror this Fall

Archie Comics is taking over Spooky Season with four all-new horror comics launching in October, also known as Archie Horror’s Month of Mayhem! Headlined by a sequel to last year’s Chilling Adventures in Sorcery, the rest of the lineup includes campfire tales for kids, an ’80s-tinted solo adventure for Sabrina’s cat Salem, and a Twilight Zone-esque flight into the sci-fi side of horror.

Leading the initiative in late September, Chilling Adventures Presents… Weirder Mysteries is a trio of dark sci-fi tales kicked off by writer Frank Tieri in a welcome return to the universe of his previous hit Archie Horror series, with art by Federico Sabbatini.

The issue is rounded out with two stories written by Joanne Starer and Ron Robbins with art by Juan Bobillo and Ryan Jampolefeaturing rare appearances by Bingo Wilkin, star of the ’70s comic series That Wilkin Boy, and Alexandra Cabot, a foil for Josie and the Pussycats.

Archie Comics’ beloved teenage witch Sabrina Spellman is no stranger to Archie Horror, having headlined her own comic, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, that spawned a Netflix streaming series. Like any good witch, Sabrina has a magical feline familiar named Salem, and now, horror-loving cat fanciers will have something to celebrate on October 12 when he stars in his first solo title, Chilling Adventures of Salem! Written by comics horror master Cullen Bunn with evocative nostalgic “horror paperback” art by Dan Schoeningthe one-shot follows Salem as he helps neighborhood animals exact revenge on those who’ve caused them harm.

Archie Horror’s first foray into middle grade chills debuts October 19 with Fear the FunhouseInspired by genuinely scary children’s horror like Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark?, the one-shot anthology features a framing sequence in which younger versions of the core Archie Comics cast tell each other increasingly terrifying stories by a campfire. It boasts three stories written by Micol OstowMagdalene Visaggioand Michael Northrop with art by Lisette CarreraRyan Caskeyand Diana Camero.

Rounding out Archie Horror’s inaugural Month of Mayhem on October 26 is The Return of Chilling Adventures in Sorcerya direct sequel to last year’s smash hit one-shot starring the iconic Sabrina villain, Madam Satan! Our titular anti-hero has escaped Hell and is on the loose, but not for long; Satan is on the hunt and she’s now hiding in Baxter High, posing as the school’s principal. Each classroom seems to be a portal back to Hell — and our window into a new scary story — culminating in a climactic showdown. Original framing sequence writer Eliot Rahal returns to pick up the thread here, along with writers Sina Grace and Casey Gillyand artists Vincenzo FedericiCorin Howelland Liana Kangas.
