“A couple of months back we announced that new lead stories would be debuting in our classic comics and we’re so happy to reveal that the first one out of the gate, BETTY & VERONICA FRIENDS FOREVER: HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR, will include an appearance by Sabrina the Teenage Witch!” said Ron Cacace, Archie Comics Director of Publicity & Social Media. “We know that our readers will get a kick out of seeing Sabrina show up in these new stories alongside Archie, Betty, Veronica, and the rest of the gang. It’s a great way to start the spooky season!
Archie’s all-ages publishing is designed to be accessible and easy to read for anyone, regardless of previous comics reading history, but keen readers who pay close attention to the new stories in the jumbo digests will notice narrative threads that carry across all three titles. These new lead stories in the classic comics come at no extra cost to fans or comic shop retailers as both BETTY & VERONICA FRIENDS FOREVER and ARCHIE’S HALLOWEEN SPECTACULAR will keep their accessible $2.99 cover price and all-ages rating.
Sabrina Spellman’s comic appearances this Fall won’t be limited to these all-ages tales, as the titular witch will return to the pages of the highly anticipated and critically acclaimed adult horror series CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA when issue #9 drops in comic shops October 13th from writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Robert Hack.
