Archie Comics has a long delightful history of insane mash-ups. From Punisher to Predator and everything in between, no premise is too insane.

Continuing that tradition, this summer the denizens of Riverdale will face off against a tornado of sharks. A ‘Sharknado,’ if you will. In ARCHIE VS. SHARKNADO #1 Archie and the gang brave a storm that riffs off SyFy’s pop culture phenomenon! Who will live? Who will die? Will this take a BITE out of the end-of-the-year prom? 

BONUS: The comic is happening concurrently with the plot of “SHARKNADO 3” and hits stands right before the film’s premiere in July on Syfy.

This variant cover a little too spooky for you? Need a little more light-hearted absurdity and/or crowbars to shark faces? Archie has two alternative Sharknado covers that will also be available wherever comics are sold!
