Vampironica — which as it sounds is Veronica Lodge turned into a vampire — will return in a new five-issue mini-series this December from writers Frank Tieri and Michael Moreci, and artist Audrey Mok.

The new book is Vampironica: New Blood, and it also has Matt Herms as colorist and Jack Morelli as letterer. It’s essentially a sequel to an earlier series that was simply titled Vampironica. This one is set after the events and amid the fallout of Jughead: The Hunger vs. Vampironica, which saw Jughead as a werewolf crossing over with Veronica as a vampire, in an event that was obviously destined to happen from the start.

io9 had the exclusive reveal on this one, noting that this will be a story about a Vampironica who is “forever changed” after the events of the aforementioned crossover. There is apparently going to be a giant revelation about Veronica and her family’s legacy as vampires in Jughead: The Hunger vs. Vampironica #5.

So, that’s a big question here. The other obvious question (to me, anyway) is when will any of these Archie Comics crossover with Blossoms 666, which is as it sounds a story about Cheryl and Jason Blossom competing to be the best spawn of satan.
