Archie Comics CCO Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa speaks with Entertainment Weekly
Archie Comics is proud to announce that the acclaimed AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE and CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA series will be returning — under the new ARCHIE HORROR imprint — to comic store shelves this Spring. The new release dates were revealed, along with exclusive artwork, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly by Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer and AFTERLIFE and SABRINA writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
The much-anticipated second issue of THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA by Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack will be hitting store shelves on April 15th, followed by AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #8 — an issue inspired by “The Shining” — by Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla on May 6th.
Aguirre-Sacasa also teased the debut of a third series in the Archie Horror line, “[The Archie Horror books] have prompted the best work of our careers,” says Aguirre-Sacasa. “To take these iconic characters and reimagine them and place them in situations they’ve never been in before—it’s a blast, and I’m glad people are responding to it.”
