Those attending New York Comic Con this year will have some spooky surprises in store when they visit Archie Comics at Booth #1936 for some early Halloween fun! If you visit the booth any day during the con dressed up as a zombified Archie character, you can win prizes. Fifty special issues will be given away per day to convention-goers dressed as a zombified recognizable Archie character; every cosplayer will get an exclusive Afterlife With Archie #1 variant. If your Archie zombie costume is exceptionally well done, you’ll get the chance to win the entire 2014 Archie Comics line! CLICK HERE to find out how.


Make sure you follow Archie Comics on social media for the codeword of the day. The first fifty people to tell us the correct codeword at the booth each day will receive a free convention exclusive button!


In addition there will be two con-exclusive comics at the booth: Afterlife With Archie #1 and Sonic the Hedgehog #251 (the last chapter of Sonic/Mega Man: Worlds Collide).



And of course, be sure to attend both of our panels to learn all the latest news and to receive FREE gift bags:

Even more reason to stop by the booth is a special 16-page free flip book preview of THE FOX and THE SHIELD which you can get signed by writer/artist Dean Haspiel.

Store Additions—September 27, 2013

, Fall’s officially here. The leaves are turning color, and this week’s offering is golden! Julia formally gets to meet Brianna’s fiancée, jungle man Zan. Sure, he seems like a nice guy, but Julia’s got her suspicions about these “nature boy” types. Enlisting Gina and Britanny to help her research, she sets a “special” trial for the couple that she feels will test Zan to the limit—or expose him for the sub-standard husband material she suspects he is! See if the trial makes or breaks him in Gold Digger #204, by Fred Perry!
