Cullen Bunn has proven a natural at tackling the supernatural in comics (see: Cold Spots, Harrow County) as well as teenagers (see: X-Men Blue), so it only makes sense that Archie Comics would recruit him for one of their “Afterlife with Archie” titles.
Blossoms 666 teams Bunn with artists Laura Braga and Matt Herms for a different take on the notorious Blossom twins, Cheryl and Jason. According to Nerdist, “They’re wealthy, popular and likeable, but they also harbor a deep, dark secret: one of the Blossom Twins is the Anti-Christ. But neither one knows which of them is the Anti-Christ, and both want the title! In short, no one in Riverdale is safe.”
“This story focuses on two of my favorite characters—the Blossom Twins—and puts them in a story of very, very dark horror/comedy,” Bunn told Nerdist. “Cheryl and Jason have always been troublemakers…One part The Omen, one part Cruel Intentions, all Archie! I think fans of the comics, fans of Riverdale, and fans of demonic horror in general are going to love this!”
The five-issue series starts in January.
