A showcase for high school horror, Blossoms 666 #3 (Archie Comics) twists the teen drama with clever bounds of black comedy, Because I’m a huge fan of the Riverdale drama on the CW, I imagined Cheryl Blossom’s feisty lines being read by her live action counterpart, actress Madelaine Petsch.
The Blossom twins have challenged one another to a competition. The challenge: corrupt Betty Cooper! The winner claims the title of Anti-Christ. But a mysterious figure has entered Riverdale, and he wants in on the competition-and the reward-himself!
Here are 5 reasons why you should read Blossoms 666 #3:
5) What Happened Before!
Cheryl and Jason Blossom are wealthy, popular and likable—but they also harbor a deep, dark secret. They have a twin brother who their parents have been hiding. One of the Blossom Triplets is the Anti-Christ.
4) The Writing!
Writer Cullen Bunn really dives into three interesting personalities as the Blossom sibling rivalry takes a fast-paced turn. Cheryl is gleefully nasty as she attempts to drive a wedge between Veronica and Betty. Letterer Jack Morelli captures the competitive drive between Julian, Cheryl, and Jason.
3) The Art!
Artist Laura Braga does a great job illustrating the teen fashion at a high school. The students are wearing sleeveless jackets, hoodies, and sweatshirts. Cheryl stands out with the fancy wardrobe and her hairstyle, which is a bun around her long hair.
2) The Colors!
The red hair of the Blossom siblings stands out in each page thanks to colorist Matt Herms. The red tone carries a vibe of suspense and foreshadowing throughout the narrative. Because of her Barbie-esque figure, Herms has Betty drive a loud pink car.
