Archie Sees What Happens ‘After The Credits’ In ‘Sonic’ And ‘Mega Man’ This May [Preview]

Sonic Mega Man Archie After The Credits
Archie Comics

As a kid I can only remember a single time anything ever happened after the credits of a movie. It was after napping through the second half of Beethoven (or maybe Beethoven 2?) on VHS, and all that happened was a silhouette of a St. Bernard climbed a hill and barked in the sunset. But then Iron Man came along in 2008 and shook Hollywood to the core with Samuel L. Jackson's now classic "Avengers Initiative" recruitment scene. Surprisingly, no one in the comic book industry proper had quite capitalized on the storytelling device... until now. This May, Archie Comics is kicking off its own “After the Credits” initiative in its Sonic The Hedgehog and Mega Man titles.

Sabrina The Teenage Witch Returns To The Apocalyptic Hellscape She Created In ‘Afterlife With Archie’ #6

Afterlife With Archie #6, Francesco Francavilla

It's been pretty well established over the last few decades that when supernatural troubles erupt in Riverdale, Sabrina the Teenage Witch is usually at the center of it. In Afterlife With Archie, however, things have gotten a little more out of hand than they usually do -- it turns out that meddling in the incomprehensible forces required to resurrect the dead has far more dire consequences than dosing Harvey with a love potion in an effort to have a nice prom date. Like, say, a full-on zombie apocalypse that's already claimed a pretty sizable chunk of the Archie cast.

That's the situation that's been going on ever since Sabrina used the Necronomicon to bring Hot Dog back to life and got banished to a nightmare hellworld for her troubles. She's been missing ever since, but in the upcoming Afterlife With Archie #6, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla finally catch up with her. Check out the exclusive reveal of both covers, including a downright Tarot-esque variant from Andrew Pepoy, and a few answers from Sacasa below!

Get An Early Glimpse Of The Animated ‘Stan Lee’s Mighty 7′ In The First Clip From ‘Beginnings’ [Video]

Stan Lees Mighty 7
The Hub

It's been almost a year since The Hub and Squared Entertainment announced that they'd be producing an animated version of Stan Lee's Mighty 7, the Archie comic created by Lee, alongside writers Tony Blake and Paul Jackson, and artist Alex Saviuk.

Now, the first clip from the movie has surfaced in advance of an airing on The Hub in February. In a very meta approach, Lee stars as himself and meets the titular heroes after Archie has tasked him with creating a new superhero team. Check out the clip, which only offers a glimpse of the movie's jaw droppingly strange voice cast, after the jump.

Sassy Thrasher Returns In ‘Archie’ #649, Adjust Your ‘Best Characters Of All Time’ Lists Accordingly

Archie #649 variant cover

I like to think that I have a pretty comprehensive knowledge of minor Archie Comics characters. Cricket O'Dell, Veronica's cousin who can smell money, Chic Cooper, Betty's older brother who is actually a full-on, licensed-to-kill secret agent, even the breakdancers from the '90s, Claude and Raoul, these are all characters that I can and will talk about at length if you give me half the chance. And yet, I was somehow completely unaware of Sassy Thrasher, a violent, skateboarding love interest for Jughead Jones.

I know, I was surprised too. That's basically everything I want in the world. Fortunately, it's time to get reacquainted, as Archie #649 has reintroduced Sassy to a world that desperately needs her. Check out a preview of the issue -- which includes a cover by Jeff Shultz, Rosario 'Tito' Peña inspired by the classic painting, The Nighthawks below!
