Blossoms 666 #2
Taking sibling rivalry to its most infernal limits, the Blossom twins enter into a sinister competition to prove themselves worthy of the throne of Hell. While Betty Cooper is starting to realize what they are up to, making herself a target, a mysterious stranger wanders into town, bringing with him a revelation that will turn Cheryl and Jason's world upside down.
The competition for the title of Antichrist escalates in Blossoms 666 #2 as Cheryl and Jason Blossom are introduced to a challenge nobody saw coming.
While this issue is mostly focused on delving into the newest mystery in Riverdale, the true highlight comes in the form of multiple dark revelations. First, is the insidious reveal of the town Sheriff’s devotion to the dark lord. His protection during the Blossom twins’ competition will undoubtedly prove valuable in the very-near future. The second is Ethel’s tribute in the woods that she is so ashamed of. The satanic shrine is a true moment of horror in the issue and provides excellent perspective for the seriousness of the topics being handled.
The strength of this issue, and the series so far, is in the ability to capture a classic Archie Comics aesthetic and provide a sometimes shockingly horror-based influence to the overall story. The tone sets the perfect groundwork for all of the fast paced and interesting character developments that make this an enjoyable issue.
The real surprise in Blossoms 666 #2 is the introduction of Julian Blossom, the twins’ older brother and heir to the Infernal Throne. His reveal throws a wrench into Cheryl and Jason’s plans, but it also opens their competition up to potentially much more grand schemes. It could prove to be a twist that really kicks off the fight for the title of Antichrist!
With Betty next on the twins’ victim list, it looks like Archie, Veronica and Jughead will have to figure out what’s going on if they hope to help…and quick!
Blossoms 666 #2 brings the all the drama and horror that fans could want as the competition for the title of Antichrist intensifies!
