You're likely well aware of the the excellent line of adult Archie horror comics, including Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Afterlife with Archie, but they also release classic-style Halloween stories for kids of all ages every fall. This year, we're happy to share exclusive previews with Daily Dead readers, starting with Betty & Veronica Friends Forever: Halloween Spooktacular #1! Along with a 2-page tease of the new story, featuring Sabrina, we have also have the reprint story, "Alien," that you can in its entirety read below!

"Betty & Veronica are here with some spooky stories to get you into the Halloween spirit, including a BRAND-NEW story! In “Best Witches,” while out shopping for their Halloween costumes, Betty and Veronica find an old witch’s hat at a thrift store. Thinking it would be perfect for her costume, Veronica buys it and puts it on. When she wishes that Archie was there and then he magically appears, they realize the hat is magic! What will Betty and Veronica do next with this newfound power?"
