Archie Comics Only Expects Mild Delays In New Horror Series Vampironica

Might as well prep for the inevitable.

Archie Comics has had great success with its horror line whenever an issue is actually released. To bolster the lineup, the publisher announced Vampironica, a story in which Veronica Lodge becomes a bloodthirsty vampire. The series will be written by Greg and Megan Smallwood, with Greg on art and Jack Morelli on letters.

"Fans can rest assured that we'll be staying faithful to the core of these characters," Greg Smallwood said in commentary provided to io9. "It was very important to Megan and I that Vampironica be the same Veronica that we all know and love, only now with fangs. Realistically, how would a narcissistic teenage shopaholic react to becoming a vampire? We found an equal amount of humor and horror in the answer to that question but the story also takes us to some amazingly heartfelt places."

Vampironica #1 is set to release March 14, 2018, with variant covers by Marguerite SauvageFrancesco FrancavillaDjibril Morrissette-Phan, and Audrey Mok.
