by Brendan M. Allen
Archie Comics has provided an early look at Chilling Adventures In Sorcery #1 to coincide with the Final Order Cutoff for retailers today. Featuring scripts by Eliot Rahal, Amy Chu, and Evan Stanley, art by Vincenzo Federici, Derek Charm, Evan Stanley, Pat and Tim Kennedy, Matt Herms, and Jack Morelli, and covers by Julius Ohta and Francesco Francavilla, Chilling Adventures In Sorcery #1 is set to drop on November 3, 2021.
A mature readers horror title, Chilling Adventures In Sorcery is an anthology hosted by Madam Satan from the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina comic series. Madam Satan’s frame story picks up some plot threads from her 2020 one-shot but also works as a standalone issue for new readers.
‘Madam Satan is our tour guide into this horrific world exploring the underbelly of Riverdale and its surrounding areas! Madam Satan is trying to escape Hell. She goes through the circles of Hell in reverse. Along the way she meets lost/tortured souls who tell their stories—like that of Archie Andrews, who accepted a seemingly normal job as the nighttime security shift at Riverdale’s local pizzeria and children’s mascot entertainment venue. Only to learn that the venue harbors a deep, dark, robotic, monstrous secret! And then there’s Jughead Jones, a teen who never met a food he didn’t like. Until now. What is that eerie noise coming from the kitchen…? All that plus more bonus frightful content sure to delight all Archie horror fans!’
