Afterlife With Archie, Vol. 1 Hits Stores Tomorrow!


This ain’t your mom’s Archie comic. Heck, this ain’t the Archie most of us grew up with! Archie and Jughead are here – the whole Riverdale gang is – but this is a dark, gruesome, and emotional tale, fraught with undead. Yes, folks. Zombies in Riverdale!

We’ve been following Afterlife With Archie at WhatchaReading for a while now, so we’re psyched to have a trade paperback, bundling issues #1-5. It hits stores today, so make sure, if you haven’t been reading it, to pick it up! With a great story written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and art by Francesco Francavilla, Jack Morelli, with gorgeous covers by Francavilla – one of my favorite artists these days – this volume is a must-own.

About Author

Rosemary Kiladitis is a children’s librarian, a mom, and a proud fangirl/nerdgirl. She did her homework while watching reruns of the 1966 Batman series, which led to her longstanding relationship with the Bat, and she’s pretty sure that Barbara Gordon is the real reason she went to library school. She loves superheroes, supervillains, and is secretly married to Hellboy. Or Loki. She can’t remember, but it’s one of them. Roe blogs about children’s and teen books at, and you can read her 140 character ramblings on twitter @RoeSolo.
