Archie Comics Launchs Two New Horror Titles For 2019: Jughead VS Vampironica & Blossom 666
Archie Comics creates new blood and horror with two new titles. Set for release in 2019 are Blossom 666 by Cullen Bunn and artist Laura Braga, and Jughead The Hunger Vs. Vampironica by writer Frank Tieri and artists Pat & Tim Kennedy.
The two series join an immensely popular imprint, Archie Horror, which include Afterlife With Archie and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina ( adapted into an upcoming Netflix series.)
In Blossom 666, Cheryl and Jason Blossom seem like the wealthy, popular, and likable teens we know and love, but in this world, they harbor a deep, dark secret — one of them is the Anti-Christ! Both want the title, and no one in Riverdale is safe. As the writer puts it, the new mini is “one part Omen, one part Cruel Intentions, all Archie!”
Jughead: The Hunger Vs. Vampironica will be an all-fangs-bared fight to the gory finish as each world’s dominant monster faces a brutal challenge to the status quo. As the writer says, we can be pretty sure that “all hell breaks loose (maybe quite literally).”
