Bleeding Cool are, apparently, partially respnsible for the initial success and purchase of Shaknado after we flipped out over a one sheet seen skulking around the Cannes Film Festival.

We apologise.

Because that also means we are responsible for this.

This summer, just in time for Syfy's Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! film, the Sharknado will also hit Riverdale, dropping sharks all over the place, from the high school to the diner…

It's that time of year in Riverdale! The end of the school year. Time for beaches, barbecues, fun in the sun and… SHARKNADOS!?! That's right, get ready as Archie and the gang brave the storm of a tornado full a sharks that riffs off the pop culture phenomenon known as Sharknado! The story unfolds as sharknados are spotted on the "Feast" Coast! Our heroines have to figure out how to get back to Riverdale, where the storm is about to hit next. Soon Archie and the gang go, go, go as they battle the Sharknado-ravaged Riverdale! Who will live? Who will die? Will this take a BITE out of the end-of-the-year prom?

Archie Vs. Sharknado is written by the movies' director Anthony C. Ferrante and drawn by Dan Parent, the "shark-tacular". This 48-page comic will his the same day as the TV show, Wednesday July 22nd.

Wow. What's next, Archie Vs Serial Apist?
