Riverdale has become the guilty pleasure of Archie fans, and with an announcement today, Archie Comics is expanding the darker tone of the Riverdale series with a character that has already seen her dark turn in the comics, as well as had her time being adapted for television. Sabrina the Teenage Witch is returning to television in a Netflix series by Riverdale showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. No cast decisions or expected release date have been named yet.
It seems like the seventh issue of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina just came out. If you, like me, have missed a regular dose of Archie Horror's take on the teenage witch, then you'll be pleased to learn that the next installment of "The Witch-War" We even get a nice cameo of one of the Riverdale gang in these preview pages Archie Comics sent us.
It's a long wait between issues in the Archie Horror line, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is no exception. If there is one rule in comics, it's that if you're going to make your readers wait, then it better be worth it. So far, Sabrina has been worth it, but it seems to moving very slow. Last issue promised the return of Sabrina's father, this issue delivers his story.
Archie Comics sent us a preview yesterday of Archie Meets The Ramones. I was looking forward to reading it, as I'm a fan of both Matthew Rosenberg and Gisèle Lagacé. Archie Comics has become one of my favorite publishers as well, but I was initially apprehensive about how this special crossover would be in execution, as Archie crossovers always seem a little odd. I blame the Punisher and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The delays in the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Afterlife With Archie have been hard for fans of the Archie Horror Line to take. Fortunately, these delays are not accompanied with missed solicitations, just long breaks between the publishing of issues with most recently almost a year between issues. The long wait is over, and we see
With the press release about Robert Hack providing guest art on Black Hood #8, we also got a preview of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #5. Robert Hack's art on the series has been very impressive and maintaining a mood while not defying the feel established in Afterlife With Archie. Check out the solicitation and preview art below.
Archie caught hell for their Kickstarter last week, but it hasn't stopped them from continuing their Horror line, one of the best things to come out of Archie in recent years. The second book in that line, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, came for me after what I could only perceive as a lackluster week where only a handful of comics seemed to be worth the time it took to read them, much less the money being asked for in the cover price. I was ready for I book I have liked in the past to give me another installment of some enjoyable reading.
It's been a while since the first issue, but when I saw the preview copy arrive for the second, I was certain to sit down and read it right away. I'm hoping that the Archie Horror line sticks around, but dread the inevitable Josie and the Pussycats title, although if they do it, I'm betting on some type of were-cats.
