    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 2, 2019

    Blossoms 666 is a slow burn in the same vein as The Exorcist. It has a constant feeling of dread through every page. While the scares are light in this debut issue, it is one of the most riveting openers in recent memory. Writer Cullen Bunn pulls us into this creepy version of Riverdale and I am transfixed by what might come next. Archie Comics has been on a roll with its horror line and Blossoms 666 is sure to be another hit. Read Full Review

    Blossoms 666 #1 is a great comic in its own right, but with the artistic depictions and theme-heavy plot, the devil is in the details. Read Full Review

    Once you get through the necessary exposition, you’ll find an issue that offers a lot in terms of thematic consistency and entertaining storytelling. Bunn is in his element here, and is clearly channelling what has made him such a strong writer in prior horror series. It’ll be interesting to see what he does with this particular comic sandbox. Braga’s art and Herms’ colors make each panel feel lived-in and carefully constructed, particularly in the comic’s back half. The book is heavily indebted to the two when it comes to the very obvious tone that it carries. Blossoms 666 #1 is a great issue in its own right, but with the artistic depictions and theme-heavy plot, the devil is in the details. Read Full Review

    Overall, whilst this isnt the best entry in the Archie Horror catalogue, Im still looking forward to seeing how it develops. However, I may end up waiting for the trade paperback to come out first so that I can read the story in its entirety. Read Full Review
