‘Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina’ Makes Learning Fun With A History Lesson (And Satan) [Preview]

Sabrina00

I've always been a proponent of comics as educational tools, so it's nice to see that Archie is taking a little time in the pages of this week's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #3 to provide all its readers with a fun history lesson about witches being tortured to death in the 17th century. I mean, yes, we can all enjoy these stories of teenage romance, school plays and worship of the Dark Lord Satan, but it never hurts to learn a little something along the way, right? Right.

So with that in mind, check out a preview to see just how Roberto Aguirre Sacasa and Robert Hack are using one of the year's most fun comics to make learning fun! Oh, and also to probably ensnare your children into the blasphemous worship of the Author of All Lies. So, uh, watch out for that, I guess.

Archie Comics Cancels Kickstarter Campaign Amid Criticisms

archie-feat2

Archie Comics has announced that it is canceling its Kickstarter campaign effective immediately. The campaign had come under fire from some, including myself, for a wide variety of reasons ranging from the company's financial status to the cost of backer rewards. The good news is that the company stands by the three new titles that the Kickstarter would have supported, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, and Life With Kevin --- but instead of funding them via crowdfunding, the books will be delayed until the publisher can afford to put them out.

Check Out Dean Haspiel’s Cover Ideas For ‘Archie’ #1

Archie00

July 8th marks the first time in 74 years that we'll see a comic called Archie #1 on the stands, when Mark Waid and Fiona Staples relaunch Riverdale's favorite teenager in a new series. As we reported previously, Archie Comics is releasing several variant covers of the issue to mark the occasion --- including the covers we exclusively debuted from Ron Salas, Greg Scott, Brittney Wiilliams, and Genevieve F.T., and the cover above from The Fox artist Dean Haspiel.

Haspiel's cover sees young Mr. Andrews engaging in a bit of parkour, inspired by Bob Montana's cover for the original Archie #1. However, Haspiel also posted four layouts that didn't make the cut, and they suggest some intriguing possibilities.

Archie Launches Kickstarter For Chip Zdarsky’s ‘Jughead,’ Adam Hughes on ‘Betty & Veronica’ And Dan Parent And J. Bone’s ‘Life With Kevin’

Archie by Fiona Staples

I don't know about you, but I did not wake up this morning expecting to see the phrase, "Jughead relaunch from the writer of Sex Criminals." And yet, here we are.

Following up on the upcoming relaunch of Archie with Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, Archie Comics announced today that they plan to expand the rebooted Riverdale through a Kickstarter campaign. The goal is set at $350,000, with the money going to a trio of rebooted comics: Jughead from writer Chip Zdarsky and an unannounced artist, Life With Kevin by Dan Parent and J. Bone, and, maybe the most surprising one of all, a new Betty & Veronica #1 written and drawn by Adam Hughes.

Riverdale Goes Full Shining In ‘Afterlife With Archie’ #8 [Preview]

Afterlife08a

A while back, the first issue of the newly relaunched The Black Hood made headlines pretty much everywhere --- including here at ComicsAlliance --- for being the first Archie Comics book to ever drop the f-bomb. Truly, it is a momentous occasion, but it seems that Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla will not be outdone, because next week's Afterlife With Archie #8 is almost certainly the first Archie comic to ever use the word "twincest-y."

They’re All A Little Unbalanced: Alex de Campi Talks ‘Archie vs. Predator’ [Interview]

Archie vs. Predator #1, Dark Horse/Archie Comics

Ever since it was announced, I was pretty sure that Alex de Campi and Fernando Ruiz's Archie vs. Predator was going to be everything I wanted out of comics. Now, with the first issue out, I know for a fact that's true --- at the very least, it's my favorite Predator crossover of all time, replacing even the one where Judge Dredd takes his shirt off and fights a Predator with a knife alongside Dutch's granddaughter.

But really, that first issue is just the tip of an alarmingly violent iceberg, which is why I spoke to de Campi about how she prepared for the series, why she's so drawn to writing Betty, Veronica, and the medium of emojis, and why she wanted to give Dilton a giant robot Archie that he could use to fight aliens. Really.

‘Archie vs. Sharknado’ Is a Real Comic That Is Being Published

archie-vs-sharknado-feat

Archie Comics has officially jumped the Sharknado.

In an move that is absolutely not an April Fools' joke, because that was more than two weeks ago, Archie will be teaming up with the filmmakers behind the intentionally cheesy Sharknado movie series for a 48-page one shot titled Archie vs. Sharknado. The issue, co-written by Archie stalwart Dan Parent and Sharknado trilogy director Anthony C. Ferrante, and featuring art by Parent and Rich Koslowski, will come out July 22, the same day Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! premieres on SyFy.

The Most Strange-erous Game: Predator’s Weirdest Hunting Trips

pred-feat

Aside from their first initial, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Archie Andrews have never had all that much in common. That changed this week, when Dark Horse Comics released Archie Vs. Predator, and the alien big game hunter that menaced a dirty, sweaty, well-muscled cast lead by Schwarzenneger in the 1987 film Predator set his sites on Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and their quite killable gang.

In film, Predators have been mostly content to hunt humans, and aliens from the Aliens franchise, across a series of five films — Predator, Predator 2, AVP: Alien Vs. Predator, Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem and Predators — but in comics, they've pursued and usually failed to obtain some pretty exotic skulls.
