ICYMI: Archie Horror Round-Up 11/8

Welcome back, fearless mortals! We do hope you've recovered from all the spooky season festivities. If you've survived, congratulations on being here for another day of horror. If not, I hope you're enjoying this from the astral plane. 
In the reverie of the holiday, Archie Horror was appropriately a-buzz with news and reviews. Here's a round-up of a few notable items you may have missed: 

Pop Culture Squad featured the title on their list of new #1s had this to say: "I am addicted to the Chilling Adventures books and excited to see this creative team take a swing at it." And that's not all! Comics Beat reviewed the title, saying: "This issue did a good job of incorporating characters from across the Archie-verse, from the famous to the obscure – I always find it rewarding to have The Archie Encyclopedia close at hand while I’m reading." And Freak Sugar had the following kind words to share: "Feels like a Twilight Zone episode in comic form, which is incredibly high praise. I’m anxious to read more from this team, whether it be horror or otherwise."

Our second Month of Mayhem title also garnered some nice press, including a 5-star review from that said: "If you like classic horror twists, this anthology is for you." Comics Beat's kind review said: "Strikes the perfect note between trick and treat, making it the perfect Halloweentime release for Archie Horror. Strongly recommended!" And, finally, Women Write About Comics had this to say: "This is a very EC Comics-forward issue that reaches a perfect, Twilight-Zoneish conclusion. Highly recommended."
