Veronica has invited Betty to her luxurious mountaintop chalet for a cozy weekend of skiing. But their girls weekend is interrupted when Archie shows up and whisks Veronica off on their own snowy romantic adventure. What could go wrong at a fancy remote cabin in the mountains all by herself? Betty's mind races and she can't tell fact from fiction as she suddenly realizes she might not be so alone. Is Betty believing too much in the horror movies she's watched, or is someone (or something) really out to get her? Find out in this BRAND NEW horror anthology one-shot that's equal parts Scream and When a Stranger Calls.

    Lotusland Comics - Hank Rea Feb 16, 2023

    All of the artists show their versatility in creating equally vibrant depictions of Archie Comic favorites and the darker twists of impending violence and suspense. Readers should probably be older teens because of the violence, which isn't gratuitous but is intense. There isn't a bad panel in the entire issue. The writers and artists assembled deliver an impassioned ode to their favorite horror movies with a breezy and thrilling horror one-shot. It's cathartic and exciting to see Archie's final girls turn the table on deadly killers.  Read Full Review
