From Archie himself! http://archiecomics.com/netflixs-chilling-adventures-of-sabrina-renewed/

I agree. I don't even like horror but I'm digging this series. I stopped watching Riverdale this season. Two seasons was enough for me. We'll see if Sabrina can keep up the momentum since it's been renewed for seasons 2, 3, and 4.
This looks like it could be pretty good. It's a five issue miniseries. Written by Kelly Thompson and drawn by Veronica Fish and her husband Andy. I'm particularly interested because Veronica Fish was my favorite of the artists on the Archie reboot title.

Netflix gives you a free month if you sign up as a trial. Even though I already did that once a couple of years ago, they gave me another free month so if you want to try Sabrina, it wouldn't cost you anything.
As far as Riverdale, I really thought two seasons was enough and I was surprised when it was renewed for a third season. I'm pretty sure I'll get around to checking out season 3 eventually but I keep reading snippets of reviews from people who liked the first two seasons suggesting that season 3 is not very good. I don't usually implicitly trust other peoples opinions on such things since I have a high tolerance for cheese (which is why I probably was fine with seasons 1 and 2), but I think I read something about a cult leader or something and I don't know why but that's a bridge too far for me. Again, I'll probably get bored enough to check it out eventually but I'm good for now.
Also, a co-worker of mine who gave up on Riverdale halfway through season 2 said she was going to watch Sabrina (she's not an Archie Comics fan) and I always enjoy things more when I have someone to debrief with after it's over. She's not as far along with Sabrina but she's enjoying it. I finished it this morning and loved the ending, especially because it does have roots in MLJ history. The penultimate episode (number 9 of 10) really affected me, but folks who watch and enjoy horror would probably find it pretty tame.
If you check it out, I'll look forward to your review!!

I've watched 8 episodes (of the 10) and am about to watch the last two. I love it even though I usually don't like horror. I enjoyed the first two seasons of Riverdale but I haven't watched any of season 3 yet. Something is keeping me from watching it and I'm not sure what.

Betty and Veronica is the last digest I'm subscribed to and I'm not sure why. My subscription has another 10 issues or so and I'll probably renew it, assuming they're stiil publishing it, just to have a digest coming in. I can't quite cut the cord all the way for some reason even though I've seen most of what's in all of them.

I'm waiting for the graphic novel of "Vampironica" but I'm glad to see you like the art. I thought Afterlife With Archie was an absolute masterpiece and I say this as someone who is not a horror fan at all. Issue 10 about the origin of Josie and the Pussycats is one of my favorite issues of any comic EVER.
The fact that Archie Comics dropped the ball on Afterlife and CHAOS when they were their best selling titles is ridiculous. I can't imagine any other comic company being so horribly managed. I admit I know next to nothing about other comic companies, but to not milk your best properties is just mind boggling.

Thanks for the review DCR. I'm getting this. I love this new format. Of course it could be better but it's a step in the right direction. I also agree on Bob White. I believe he was the artist on The Man From R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E stories from the 60s and I loved those.
I saw it and loved it. Most people either hated or loved it. Had no idea there was a soundtrack LP. That's demented! Ha ha.

I got this one too. Just starting on it. Cool stuff!

Thanks for the review, DCR! I have all of the books (except Cosmo) in this new format so far and haven't gotten to them yet. I'm looking forward to it, but I wish they were complete chronological runs. Still, compared to some of the other things ACP is doing, these are a cool idea IMO.
I know most of y'all are into classic Archie only and a lot of y'all didn't get into RIVERDALE.
I've bought all of the reboots except B&V Vixens. I actually thought the Mark Waid written Archie was pretty good. Not great, but some issues were, to me, well above average, while others were dull. I loved Afterlife With Archie and liked Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but of course we know what happened with those.
This latest news about the main title, ARCHIE, though, is too much. To cancel the Waid one, then have this bizarre Archie 1941 series that's NOT drawn by a classic artist like Jeff Shultz or Dan Parent, and then follow it up with something that looks so non-descript and non-Archie is just weird. It's almost irrelevant to me what it's going to contain or what the quality ends up being. It just seems like the company is drifting with no idea what to do next.
I understand why that would be the case. They own characters that most people find outdated and irrelevant and it can't be easy figuring out what to do.
Unlike a lot of y'all, I absolutely loved Riverdale, the TV show. The first season was awesome and the second season had plenty of good moments. But now I'm reading there's going to be some kind of cult leader. I'll give season 3 a chance but it sounds like I won't be making it through the whole season if it's going to be about some stupid cult.
I've been an Archie fan for LONG time. Some people on here know that comics made by Archie Comics are the only comics I've ever read. I'll continue to buy collections produced by ACP if they're done well and contain at least some material I don't already have.
I'm perfectly willing to jump on board if they come up with new ideas that look compelling but for the first time in my life I'm not subscribing to at least one new title of theirs and I'm cancelling my subscription to the flagship title.
I trust that if anything good happens, the well educated fans on this forum will let us know!

I was never a fan of Betty and Veronica as biker chicks to begin with. I always thought of these ladies as too classy for that trash, so I'm not terribly disappointed that this title didn't work out.
