Archie Comics is once again getting into the holiday spirit with two Halloween themed titles arriving in September.  Take the jump for the solicitation information for Archie & Friends #135, and Betty & Veronica Digest #198.

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”?!

    What’s spooky is that there are people who actually believe that Archie and Veronica saved themselves for marriage…!
