You’re Invited To The Black Sabbath In ‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina’ #4 [Preview]

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #4

The teens of Archie Comics are having a pretty weird week. In the past seven days, we've seen them deal with a sharknado that caused the vast majority of the cast to violently lose most of their limbs, and finish up an encounter with the Predator that saw pretty much everyone in the city of Riverdale dying in the most spectacularly violent way possible. Now, just in case that wasn't enough, things are about to get downright devilish.

Next week marks the release of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Robert Hack's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #4, and poor Harvey Krinkle arrives at the Spellman family's latest dark ritual --- and is followed up by some familiar faces from the next town over. Check out a preview below, including a pretty awesome variant cover based on the poster for Carrie!

True Blue, Part Nine: A Whole New World, Like A Lot of Them

true 9

Welcome to the ninth installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event.

Previously in "Worlds Unite," while under siege from the Freedom Fighters and Robot Masters, Sigma kicked off his massive universe invasion plan. While Sigma's Mavericks were holding the attention of the heroes, a select group began taking Unity Engines through Genesis Portals. Sonic, Mega Man and the rest of the good guys finally manage to subdue the attacking forces above Lost Hex, but not without the aid of Sticks and Street Fighter's World Warriors. Finally able to regroup, and beneath Sigma's attention (for now), our true blue heroes craft a plan for an invasion of their own, and hope to put a stop to Sigma's machinations for good.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For July 22 2015

bestcomics_0722

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s Finally Here: Archie Battles The Sharknado In ‘Archie Vs. Sharknado’ [Archie Vs. Sharknado]

Shark00

I'll be honest with you, folks: I have never seen any of the three (and counting) Sharknado films. This is not, I assure you, from lack of interest, as anything that can combine the destructive power of nature and the terrifying threat of sharks being whipped through the air is certainly something I want to see, but the point remains. I will tell you, though, that there's a pretty good chance that Archie vs. Sharknado is going to be the first comic I read this week.

Not only does it hit the sweet spot of being one of Archie's increasingly frequent and increasingly bizarre crossovers, something that's produced more hits than misses in recent years, but it also has sweet, kindhearted Betty Cooper expressing sympathy for the sharknado, and a rarely seen reference to Josie and the Pussycats, the greatest comic book movie of all time. Check out a preview below!

True Blue, Part Eight: Hole in the Sky, Window in Time

trueblue8

Welcome to the eighth installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event.

Previously in “Worlds Unite,” the Zeti used their powers to take control of the Robot Masters, pitting Mega Man and his friends against Sonic and the Freedom Fighters. It was an epic battle, but Wily and Eggman came up with a disruptor ray to shut down the robots and stun the Zeti long enough for the good guys to prevail. Though everyone needed time to recuperate, Sigma's newly evolved form bursts forth from Lost Hex. Not only will the heroes have to contend with the bigger, badder Sigma 2.0, they're also faced with taking on every single Maverick you can think of, and even some you can't. The battle for Lost Hex has clearly only just begun, and our heroes are going to need every last bit of help they can get.

True Blue, Part Seven: San Diego Comic-Con Special Edition

true 7

Welcome to the seventh installment of True Blue, our weekly recap of Archie Comics‘ crossover event between the Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man series, “Worlds Unite.” Each installment, we’ll recap the notable moments of the latest chapter in “Worlds Unite” with Archie Action Editor Vincent Lovallo, and take a look at what lies ahead for the next chapter of the crossover event. This week, we're digging even deeper with more details about the future of Archie Action, Mega Man and Sonic Boom straight from San Diego Comic-Con.

Previously in "Worlds Unite," our heroes had been searching for Sigma and his hideout, Lost Hex. The group, traveling aboard Sky Patrol, had been searching the area Wily and Eggman directed them to, and were met with swift resistance from Sigma's new robot army. Fortunately, the team of Freedom Fighters and Robot Masters makes short work of the mechanized opposition, but the Deadly Six prove to be a bit more trouble than expected. Even as defeat loomed, the Zeti were able to overcome the odds and take control of Mega Man and his friends to do the fighting for them.
