Veronica returns for a second bite in Vampironica: New Blood!

Archie Horror‘s leading lady is back in a blood-spattered new mini-series! Vampironica — the fanged alter-ego of Riverdale’s iconic “it girl” Veronica Lodge — will return in December’s Vampironica: New Blood, a five-issue run written by bestsellers Frank Tieri and Michael Moreci with art by Archie Comics veteran Audrey Mok.

In last year’s Vampironica, Veronica was turned into a creature of the night by an invading horde of fanged monsters, and the vampire slaying anti-hero has been put through her paces in the multiversal crossover Jughead: The Hunger vs. Vampironica which concludes on October 9. New Blood spins out of the shocking events of that issue, with Ronnie back in her own world trying to deal with the ramifications as new monstrous threats rear their (very) ugly heads. 

New Blood welcomes Michael Moreci back to Riverdale after his critically acclaimed work on last year’s crossover with DC Comics, Archie Meets Batman ’66. And the series marks fan-favorite artist Audrey Mok’s first horror title for Archie. 

Colorist Matt Herms and letterer Jack Morelli will complete the creative team. The first fangtastic issue hits comics shops on December 4, 2019!
