From Afterlife with Archie and Jughead: The Hunger to Vampironica and Blossoms 666, Archie Comics has given adult horror fans plenty to enjoy in recent years, but they also have never stopped providing family-friendly frights in their digest comics.

With another Halloween season upon us, we're thrilled (and chilled) to once again team up with Archie Comics to provide Daily Dead readers the weekly treat of exclusive previews from their digest comics!

In this week's exclusive preview of Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #334, Cosmo the Merry Martian crashes Veronica Lodge's Halloween Ball with a grave warning of imminent danger. As an additional treat, we have another Archie Halloween story in its entirety, in which Archie seeks help from Sabrina after the witch Adrazelle turns his head into a pumpkin!

Below, you can check out our Halloween-themed preview from Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #334 ahead of its release on October 12th! Go here to catch up on our previous Archie Comics Halloween season previews, and to learn more about Archie Comics, visit:


TWO BRAND NEW STORIES! First in “A Very Cosmo Halloween!” Cosmo the Merry Martian—or someone who looks an awful lot like Cosmo—crashes the Lodge Halloween Ball. Fortunately, this year it’s science fiction-themed! Cosmo tries to warn the teens of an impending invasion—but will they be able to tell them apart from the costumed aliens at the party?

Then, in “Here Come the Power Pets!” The Superteens battle an evil villain called Snowboy. As Snowboy uses his powers to put the Superteens in a deep freeze, Archie’s beloved dog Vegas realizes that he’s got to find a way to rescue them. He gathers Vader, Hot Dog and Carmel and convinces them to join him. Our new heroes become the Power Pets, but do they have what it to rescue their humans?
