THREE BRAND NEW STORIES! Santa sends his favorite elf and fairy on a mission to Riverdale to stir up as much Christmas spirit as possible in “Christmas Spirit Spat.” It’s girls vs. guys in the quest to show off the most Christmas spirit.

Then, it’s a pet show showdown when the nefarious Kennel Kween tries to steal Riverdale’s top pets! Can Captain Flag save the day, or will the Kween win “Best in Show”? The good captain’s own pet may have something to squawk about this!

And finally, in “Safe Space,” Veronica has locked a precious valuable inside an uncrackable safe – this looks like a job for Fireball! The only problem is, he’s not around and they’ll have to call for backup. Enter . . . Inferno the Fire Breather!

Using his power to become immaterial, Walt beats up criminals and then breaks the news of his exploits in his newspaper column . . . but New York City is not as it once was, and with less crime that means less news. So, if there’s no crime left to fight, there’s only one thing to do: create enemies. Is Bob Phantom really the Scourge of the Underworld, or its leader?

Riverdale’s girl-next-door is a new horror icon! It’s Betty, the Final Girl!

Archie Comics icon Betty Cooper — known for 80 years as the girl next door with a ready solution for every problem, might have finally found her match in Chilling Adventures Presents… Betty: The Final Girl, a one-shot anthology from the renowned Archie Horror imprint, on-sale in February 15, 2023!

The slasher sub-genre’s most widely loved trope, the “final girl” is the clever survivor who carries a relentless plot across the finish line, taking it to the bad guy in the last scene. Writer Micol Ostow immediately turned to Betty when she thought of marrying the genre with Archie’s core cast of characters.

Micol’s framing story, “Rosemary’s Babysitter,” with art by Laura Bragatakes Betty and Veronica to a secluded mountaintop chalet for a weekend of skiing. When Betty is left alone, her mind begins to race and dangers appear around every darkened hallway and every creaky door. Each new fright introduces a new story starring a different girl from the Archie Comics roster: “Be Mine or Die” by Casey Gilley and Natalie Nardozza, and “Melody’s Next” by Sam Maggs and Carola Borelli.

Veronica has invited Betty to her luxurious mountaintop chalet for a cozy weekend of skiing. But their girls weekend is interrupted when Archie shows up and whisks Veronica off on their own snowy romantic adventure. What could go wrong at a fancy remote cabin in the mountains all by herself? Betty’s mind races and she can’t tell fact from fiction as she suddenly realizes she might not be so alone. Is Betty believing too much in the horror movies she’s watched, or is someone (or something) really out to get her? Find out in this BRAND NEW horror anthology one-shot that‘s equal parts Scream and When a Stranger Calls.

A love letter to slasher movies and horror in general, the comic features two open-to-order covers by Laura Braga and Megan Hutchison celebrating the heroic final girl archetype. Betty: The Final Girl features colors by Matt Herms and lettering by Jack Morelli.
