Riverdale is Burning!
Everybody who reads comics has a place (no matter how small) in their heart for Archie and the gang from Riverdale. Archie, Betty, Jughead, Veronica even if you only read an issue or two you not only remember their names and faces but you feel like you know them, their personalities. It’s probably been 30+ years since I read an Archie comic but I felt right at home when I picked up Afterlife with Archie #1.
The story revolves around an accident involving Reggie and Jughead’s dog. When Reg clips Hot Dog late one night Jughead in his grief begs Sabrina for help. And help she does… with disastrous results.
The spell she uses, without permission, brings Jughead’s best friend back to him but not in a good way. This would be tragic enough but the resurrection of Hot Dog coincides with another event, Riverdale High Halloween Bash! Click the link to go check out the issue 2 preview!
Are you back? Did you enjoy the preview? Cool! Since you came back allow me to treat you to some issue 3 cover art… (left Tim Seeley, right series artist Francesco Francavilla)
This series is sick, wrong, and totally cool! I don’t know if it’s that we’ve already formed sub-conscious relationships with these characters or that it’s just really well written but I feel the book hits a little harder, a little closer to home than some of the other zombie books out there.
And now you really have no reason to resist jumping on this series. Issues 1 and 2 are available FOR FREE digitally. That’s right the first two issues are available for download. Click the link or go here (http://AfterlifeWithArchie.
I’m giving this series (the first two issues) a 4 out of 5, it’s original, well written, beautifully illustrated. Go get it.
