ICYMI: Archie Horror Round-Up 10/6

ICYMI: Archie Horror Round-Up 10/6

While Archie Horror was busy at the H45: 45 Years of Terror convention in Pasadena this weekend, the news train kept a-rollin'. Here's a quick recap of what you might have missed. 


The Michael Myers x Archie Comics prints by artist Matt Talbot for the H45 convention were the talk of the horror community last week. And the crowds and fans turned out in spades to show their support for the Halloween franchise and the Archie collaboration. We couldn't be more honored to have been a part of the event. Thanks to every one who stopped by the booth, bought prints or books, or just shared kind words.

Madam Satan

Madam Satan: Hell on Earth released in comic shops on 9/20, and there was plenty of coverage of the terror queen's journey on Earth, including a look at the power of the antihero in Senior Director of Editorial Jamie Rotante's monthly article on Daily Dead

The title also received acclaim. Comic Book Club reviewed, saying, “This book is horrifying. It’s got a wild continuity that it’s dealing with, but it still makes me want to keep reading."

Likewise, ComicBook.com said, "If you are looking for a creep-tastic read this October, Archie is prepping the perfect series for you."

Strange Science

Strange Science was released way back on 8/16, but this poignant title is still generating important discussions and receiving critical acclaim. 

Bloody Disgusting ran a great interview with writer Magdalene Visaggio. They also had this to say about the comic: "STRANGE SCIENCE is a thoughtful meditation on personal grief and fears that left me thinking long after I put the comic down."

AiPT ran an exclusive "monster design" feature with artist Butch Mapa. In their review portion they said, "Visaggio, along with line artist Butch Mapa and colorist Ellie Wright, creates an immersive world that allows the story to really shine through."

 And Women Write About Comics said its "a delight to read that deserves to be savored."
