One of the great things about Archie comics is the fact that it continues to thrive and tell new stories. Every so often we see stories that are inspired by other genres and it gives a great opportunity to see the characters in different situations. That appears to be the case for ARCHIE #649, due in October.
Archie Comics has given us an exclusive cover and solicit reveal for the issue.
Archie in “Magic Mayhem” – Archie tells the tale of his pal Jughead in this magical story! Things are getting very strange in the halls of Riverdale High School—or should we call it, Riverdale: The School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? With the UGAJ (United Girls Against Jughead) back in action, can Archie’s crowned compadre manage to avoid having to take a date to the Fall Gala? When the usual suspects up their antics with some supernatural help, it’s going to take some wizardry to make it out alive!
