Afterlife with Archie 8The executives at Archie Comics will launch a new imprint called Archie Horror.

The first two books that will be released under Archie Horror include issue #2 of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina series and issue #8 of the Afterlife with Archie series. The first title will come out on April 15th and the second will follow on May 6th.

According to the press release, writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa worked on the stories for both projects. Aguirre-Sacasa feels that “to take these iconic characters and re-imagine 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.” The Archie Horror team plans to publish a third series at some point in time.
