Since it’s September, it’s a head start on Archie’s annual Halloween offerings. The cover for “World of Archie” is a cute jab at their “Afterlife” comic’s premise. The story in said digest also sounds like another adventure with the gang’s pets, who seem to be getting plenty of space this month.

Sabrina gets a new comic this month; this one’s not based on the current series on The Hub, nor a traditional-style Archie book, but is a “mature readers” horror title along their “Afterlife With Archie” series. The billed villain, Madame Satan, was apparently an old-time Archie comic character (from their non-Riverdale lines of books). I’ll give it a go, if only because I like Sabrina and zombies aren’t involved.

“Rockin’ the World” collects the recent “Archie World Tour” storyline.

Archie’s comic line lately has been subject to delays in shipped books, for whatever reason. As a result, “Kevin Keller”‘s final issue has been pushed back from July to September. While the “Days of Future Past” variant cover’s nice, I’ll miss this series.
