For Archie fans, Thursday is the day to visit the Major Spoilers site as we bring you a sneak peek of Archie Comics titles arriving next week.  Take the jump for Betty & Veronica Spectacular #85, plus a look at the company’s new trade dress and logo.

In 2009, Archie Comics is entering a new phase of growth with the launch of two new titles, Archie Comics Presents and Sonic Universe. The new logos on our comics and digests highlights Archie Comics’ plans for the future and the new trade dress represents our latest step. Whereby we bring many of our popular characters to the forefront of our fans attention as soon as they see our digests and double digests.



“An Axe to Grind”: It’s a dark and stormy night… a fitting night for Betty and Veronica to stay inside and have a scary movie festival!  But things go from “reel” to real when Archie, Jughead and Reggie try to crash the girls’ private party… and come face-to-face with an axe-wielding maniac!  Is everything as it seems, or is it just a case of the boys’ imaginations running wild?  Guest-starring Veronica’s truck driving-aunt, Tessie!
