Horror and comic fans were delighted when Archie Comics released the now acclaimed comic’s Afterlife with Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina as both series brought something new and terrifying to the normally subdued characters. Both comics are as breathtakingly beautiful and well-written as they are frightening and fans have been eating these stories up. Unfortunately though, Archie Comics had to put the titles on hold as the publisher and series creators just got to busy with the recent reboot and other projects.
Luckily for us the wait is now over as Archie Comics is bringing the Horror Back this spring with Afterlife with Archie #9 and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #5. The creators you love return as Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa and artists Francesco Francavilla and Robert Hack come back together to continue their genre-defying comics. Check out the full details from Archie Comics Below.
Archie Horror springs back to life this May, as the critically acclaimed and genre-defying CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA and AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE series return to comic shops with brand new issues and more to come.
The spotlight turns to Reggie, the instigator behind the zombie apocalypse that now threatens the entire planet, in AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #9. Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla take us back to the fateful night that started everything and ask the question: is redemption possible for Reggie Mantle? Find out on June 1st when AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #9 returns to comic shops.
CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA #5, with raw and macabre artwork by artist Robert Hack, continues to pit the teenage witch against the deadly manipulations of Madame Satan. Still reeling from the fallout of her botched baptism and the fate of her boyfriend, Harvey Kinkle, Sabrina faces her toughest challenge yet in the form of the Witches Council. Issue #5 hits comic shops on May 18th.
“There’s no excuse for late books, just apologies,” said Aguirre-Sacasa, promising additional issues of AFTERLIFE and CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA are in progress.
“We know how much these books mean to you—so thank you, thank you, thank you for sticking with us through thick and thin.”
