Preview: Archie’s Weird Mysteries

Let’s take a break from the mid-July Comic-Con madness and get into a Halloween mood! Archie’s Weird Mysteries is an Archie trade paperback that compiles stories from the comic of the same name, which was based on the animated Archie’s Weird Mysteries series—writer Paul Castiglia explains the relationship between the comic and the cartoon on his blog, and in a 2009 interview he discusses the challenges of writing Archie horror comics. Of course, this is Riverdale, so the horror is pretty lite. Really, they are just having fun with the conventions of the genre.

Anyway, enjoy a couple of pages of Betty being mildly terrorized after the jump. The book arrives in comics shops next week.



The link for the explanation between the comic and cartoon goes to a Marvel link instead.

Dammit! Shriek 3 was the worst one! Casting Justin Timberlake as King Arthur was egregious, there was no humor at all, and the whole story was about mid-life crisis…

… oh wait. SHRIEK 3.

I heard that was pretty tight.
