Archie & Friends Chills and Thrills #1 | Preview
Last week we ran an unusual vintage Archie story and this week we’re keeping on that trend wiht a preview of Archie & Friends Chills and Thrills #1, one of a series of themed single-issue comics with all new stories. We have a preview of “Return to Mirrordale” (see Archie #647 for a look at that weird world), and then a full classic story from Archie 3000, set in a future where space travel is no big deal and everyone has mullets, in which Archie and the gang go to a futuristic carnival. Hold on to your hats! The comic goes on sale on August 10 but you can get started on the futuristic fun right now. Enjoy!
