From Archie Comics
In the nearly 70 years that Archie Comics have been published, Archie and his friends have commemorated the holidays time and time again. Countless stories featuring the gang involved in hilarious and heartwarming tales revolving around Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, and especially Christmas have peppered the pages of Archie Comics, much to the delight of readers.
One holiday that is a mainstay of Archie Comics is Halloween. Kids love to dress up in costumes and have masquerade parties, and Archie and his friends are no exceptions.
Time and time again their Halloween hijinx have led to hilarity. And sometimes they even met real monsters, as in the pages of “Life with Archie” and “Archie’s Weird Mysteries.”
This fall, the Riverdale teens are at it again. Don’t miss the spooky fun!
ARCHIE & FRIENDS #135
Things are getting spooky in Riverdale again, just in time for another Halloween adventure. As Archie and his friends get ready for the big party, they experience a shocking change - literally! This year, the costume shop has a magical effect on Archie, Betty, Veronica, Chuck and Moose... and even makes Reggie more monstrous than usual! Can boy genius Dilton work up his usual wizardry and get the gang out of this blood-curdling conundrum, or will we have to change the title of this comic to "Archie & FIENDS"?!
