A Werewolf in Riverdale

By: Caleb Roehrig

Expected Publication Date: April 7th, 2020

Buy on:   Book Depository  //  Amazon

Who is the Riverdale Ripper? And why is Jughead waking up covered in blood? 

Based on the original Archie Comics characters! 

Everyone knows the characters from Riverdale: popular Archie Andrews, girl-next-door Betty Cooper, angsty Jughead Jones, and the sophisticated Veronica Lodge. But this is not the Riverdale you know and love. Something twisted has awoken in the town with pep. Inspired by the iconic Archie Horror comics, this reimagined universe takes the grittiness of the TV show and adds a paranormal twist.

 Someone is killing the citizens of Riverdale. And after a bloody full moon, Jughead realizes he is the killer! Jughead is a werewolf. Can he keep this secret from his friends -- including werewolf-hunting Betty Cooper? Jughead has to get his dark side under control -- before it is controlling him. 

The Archie Horror series contains all-new, original stories that fans of horror AND fans of Riverdale will eat up!

I've been reading Archie Comics ever since I was little and I'm definitely looking forward to reading a horror retelling of the classic Archie Comics!

Girls Save the World in This One

By: Ash Parsons

Expected Publication Date: April 14th, 2020

Buy on:  Book Depository  //  Amazon

June’s whole life has been leading up to this: ZombieCon, the fan convention celebrating all things zombies. She and her two best friends plan on hitting all the panels, photo ops, and meeting the heartthrob lead of their favorite zombie apocalypse show Human Wasteland. And when they arrive everything seems perfect, though June has to shrug off some weirdness from other fans—people shambling a little too much, and someone actually biting a cast member. Then all hell breaks loose and June and her friends discover the truth: real zombies are taking over the con. Now June must do whatever it takes to survive a horde of actual brain-eating zombies—and save the world.

A zombie book where girls actually save the world?  Count me in!
