Archie And Friends Get Into Halloween Hijinx With ‘Masquerade Mishaps’
Is there any holiday more geared specifically towards teenage hijinx than Halloween? I mean, I love Christmas, but the shenanigans involved in trying to find the right present for someone aren't really all that wild, and nobody really gets all that excited about, say, Arbor Day. Halloween, though? Candy! Costumes! Mistaken identities! Parties that go haywire for any number of reasons! It's the perfect time for teens to find trouble while dressed up as bears, and I know this because I have been reading Archie comics for a very long time.
And now, to celebrate the season of scares, Archie has put together its next digital collection: Masquerade Mishaps, which follows up on last week's amazingly titled Josie and the Scaredy Cats with 100 pages of costume-themed comedy from Archie and the gang. It's out on the 23rd, but if you can't wait, check out a preview below!
I have to say, as great as I'm sure these stories are, Moose dressing up as a football player is quiet possibly the laziest costume of all time, as Moose is a football player. Dude is just straight up wearing his jersey, and no amount of making a tiny adorable helmet for his pet turtle is going to make me forgive that. Get it together, Mason. Halloween comes but once a year. Anyway, here's Archie's official solicitation:
