It seems that Archie Comics is continuing to reinvent their properties in new ways with another addition to their ever-growing Archie Horror line. The publisher has now announced a new title, Vampironica. 

This brand new title by brother and sister Greg (co-writer/artist) and Megan Smallwood (co-writer), along with veteran letterer Jack Morelli, brings a new terror to the streets of Riverdale as Veronica Lodge is bitten by a centuries-old vampire! Riverdale is set to turn red in the latest twisted take on classic Archie Comics characters.

Greg Smallwood had this to say:

Fans can rest assured that we’ll be staying faithful to the core of these characters. It was very important to Megan and I that Vampironica be the same Veronica that we all know and love, only now with fangs.

Megan Smallwood added:

Greg and I were both very interested in exploring the concept of a vampire Veronica without getting rid of what makes Veronica such a special character. Ironically, Vampironica humanizes Veronica in a way that only horror can. Becoming a vampire is a humbling experience for her and she’s forced to open up and expose a little vulnerability.

The creators also revealed the influence of some classic 80s horror movies on the title. Greg had this to say:

I’d say that our biggest influences are American Werewolf in London and Fright Night. Both films can be quite horrific but there’s also a lot of strong characterization and humor to them.

It certainly sounds like Archie has another horror hit to add to Afterlife With Archie, The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina and the recent Jughead: The Hunger. What do you guys think? Check out the cover and solicit below and comment and discuss!Vampironica
