    Another new installment in the Archie Horror line, this time reimagining the Blossom family as members of a satanic murder cult. It’s pretty fun, even if the story doesn’t shy away from treading a few tired old horror tropes, and the ending felt a bit smudged. Still, Cullen Bunn manages to write probably the best Archie Horror book to date, and Laura Braga’s excellent and consistent artwork is icing on the cake.

    Cullen Bunn signs up for Archie's horror line giving us a tale mashing up The Omen, Rosemary's Baby and the Blossom twins. The pacing in the final issue felt somewhat rushed, almost like the series was cut short and Bunn needed to wrap things up. I would have loved to see this played out over a longer series. I feel like we only got a taste. Lauren Braga's art was a pleasant surprise.

    I keep trying these Archie Horror comics, and I keep being disappointed. They're neither scary nor interesting in the least. I hoped being unfamiliar with the Blossom siblings would help this time around, but they are simply wooden jerks who don't accomplish much of anything as they vie to be the Anti-Christ. The story such as it is stops, but it really doesn't end. The first issue of Jughead the Hunger Vs. Vampironica is included in the back.

    So this is Archie's fifth(?) trip down the Horror line, where they contrast the naiveté and innocence of their Archie characters with the murderous and destructive forces of terror. And, it's the least successful of the bunch. (OK, I haven't read the vampire-Veronica one, but it's certainly less successful than Afterlife and Sabrina, which were both great, and even than the Jughead-Werewolf, which was at least scary and icky.) It's no longer enough to just kill off Archie characters in horrific So this is Archie's fifth(?) trip down the Horror line, where they contrast the naiveté and innocence of their Archie characters with the murderous and destructive forces of terror.

It's no longer enough to just kill off Archie characters in horrific ways, and if the shocking thing here was to corrupt the Archie characters, it wasn't that successful. We get dull devil worshiping that just feels like it's going through the motions, then we get a real non-ending.

    3,5 non seguo la serie Riverdale (ho abbandonato dopo quattro episodi), ma tutti i fumetti dedicati ai suoi personaggi mi ispirano tantissimo, specie perché prendono una piega soprannaturale (se anche la serie tv fosse così, la guarderei tipo subito). Blossom 666 mi ispirava da secoli, ma ho aspettato pazientemente che concludessero la pubblicazione dell'ultimo albo, in modo da non dover attendere e poterlo leggere tutto di seguito... e dopo averlo finito penso solo che forse avrei dovuto 3,5⭐ non seguo la serie Riverdale (ho abbandonato dopo quattro episodi), ma tutti i fumetti dedicati ai suoi personaggi mi ispirano tantissimo, specie perché prendono una piega soprannaturale (se anche la serie tv fosse così, la guarderei tipo subito).

NON SO COME FARO' AD ASPETTARE. Spero solo che finisca come Sabrina ..... Blossom 666 ha qualche aspetto abbastanza tipico del genere horror e ci sono parecchi punti interrogativi, quindi non mi sono fatta un'idea precisa. Di sicuro è molto coinvolgente. Personaggi ok, ma anche loro hanno ancora molto da dire. Di sicuro ho adorato Julian, completamente inaspettato (vero che non seguo Riverdale, ma un paio di personaggi li conosco)... e poi vabbè, pigliate un personaggio psicopatico e sfigato e lo amerò, a prescindere. L'ho shippato da morire con Betty, ma ho l'impressione che questa ship non vedrà mai la luce. Comunque come inizio penso sia ottimo. Le tavole poi... delle piccole meraviglie.

    Y’all are aware of the dark turn that they’ve taken with several of our beloved Archie-verse characters of late, right? Afterlife With Archie about a zombie infestation of Riverdale, The Chilling Tales of Sabrina featuring a more occult-driven telling of the life of our favorite teenage witch, Vampironica that can only be described as the bastard hybrid of Vampirella and Veronica Lodge, and Jughead: The Hunger where Jughead is a werewolf. Yeah, those. Well this is the continuation of that Y’all are aware of the dark turn that they’ve taken with several of our beloved Archie-verse characters of late, right?

Yeah, those. Well this is the continuation of that horrific evolution only it kinda confirms something I’ve believed all along... that Cheryl and Jason Blossom are the antichrist. Well, one of them is, anyway. It’s up to the two of them to fight it out to earn the title in a series of deceptions and manipulations that only Cheryl and Jason Blossom can perpetrate on each other and get away with it with a wink and a smile. It’s dark, it’s twisted, it’s kinda delicious. It’s Blossoms: 666.

    Another great Archie Horror title. This time, Bunn gives the Blossom twins The Omen treatment. I don't think there's a more natural fit in the line. Unfortunately, it feels like this series was cut short. It read like, at best, the first half of an at least 12 issue series. I'm not sure if this is bad pacing from Bunn or the series getting cut short by editorial. Up until that rushed, incomplete ending, this was great.

I'm not sure if this is bad pacing from Bunn or the series getting cut short by editorial. Up until that rushed, incomplete ending, this was great. The twins are devious and creepy and dangerously appealing, and the havoc they're wreaking in wholesome Riverdale is both fascinating and awful. I just wish there was more. Maybe there will be, but Archie Horror is... not the most reliable line with such things.

    This book was beautiful, and it pulled characters together how I would expect them, but all in all it left me with too many questions. They're supposed to be competing to become the anti-christ... But what does that even look like? I was really underwhelmed by the plot and the new character; it all could have gone much darker.

    One of the Blossoms is going to be the Anti-Christ. Watch them destroy Riverdale as they try and work out who. That's the hook, and you really don't need any more than that. Of course, a forgotten twin brother doesn't hurt though. I did like this, I really did. The machinations of Cheryl and Jason are fun to watch, and it's clear from Riverdale and the other Archie Horror books that Archie Comics don't mind torturing their characters.

The story just ends, and we're no closer to finding out who wins, who dies, anything at all. If there's a second mini-series incoming then I might change my mind, but anyone expecting a complete story from this mini-series is going to be disappointed (so I'd assume most people). Can't fault the art though; Laura Braga's great, and her eye for clothing and costume design remind me of Joelle Jones. Lovely stuff all the way through. Shame the story doesn't quite live up it.

    Okay. I read this. I basically read it because it was presented to me on Hoopla, and thus rather easy to get my hands on, and I love Cheryl Blossom. I loved Cheryl Blossom when she was just a bitchy mean girl in my Betty and Veronica Double Digests and I love her even more now that she's the best thing on Riverdale (with her freaking bow and arrow). So in this it's basically that either she or her twin brother, Jason, are the antichrist and they have to sort of battle it out between each other. Okay. I read this.

Complications arise when a new sibling is randomly thrown into the mix. It didn't really have much of a resolution... to the point where I feel like there has to be more because if there isn't more I'm not even sure what the point of this whole book was other than just pure unabashed amusement. So, I hope they give us more. Cause I love amusement, but I still want to know what happens.

    I'm a huge Cullen Bunn fan. I follow most of his work and always enjoy it. Then I saw Cullen Bunn on a Archie Comic. Eyebrow went up, lip curled followed by a sigh. I did not have high hope and after reading this still do not. Writing in a Archie Comic is limiting to Bunn's usual bouquet of styling and imagination. The story is interesting but confined. There is too much Archie goody-goodiness on what could be done with this. It is what I expected for a underwhelmed idea and it's delivery.

    This is the first Archie Horror graphic novel that didn’t wow me. It felt as though the author just really didn’t understand Cheryl & Jason Blossom, the characters felt really flat. The artwork looks like the artwork from the regular Archie/ Riverdale novels, and not the Archie Horror style artwork, which left me disappointed. I didn’t hate it but I was just expecting more from an antichrist story featuring the fiery haired terrible two. Also, not enough incest vibes. Lol.

    Wasn't sure what to think about this one. Wanted to like it more but felt like it was missing something. Maybe I don't know enough about the new Archie universe? Characters and situations seemed too 1-dimensional.

    Really enjoyed this version of the Archie comics. Not hard to believe the blossoms as Satan worshippers or Cheryl and Jason in competition to become the anti Christ. Always loved these comics and this one was a delight.

    3.5/5. I liked this, but it needs to be more. I think part of my issue is that I thought it was a limited series, but it definitely is an ongoing? The art is gorgeous though, and I love how much of it lines up with Riverdale!

    Definitely fits right in with the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Except I'm not getting the weird cognitive disconnect. (The Blossom twins were never very nice people.) Pro tip: Pay extra attention to the art.

    This was such a fun and quick read! I am so happy to be back in the Riverdale comics world after the disappointing third season of the TV show. The horror aspect of the book contributed to its overall fresh feel. This was such a fun and quick read!
