There has been much discussion of the upcoming “Afterlife With Archie” comic series from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla, which brings the undead to the quaint town of Riverdale. After months of anticipation, the preview is finally here and it looks like some of Francavilla’s best work. The publisher has promised that this ain’t your daddy’s “Archie” comic, but rather it is a full-fledged horror series. Check out the preview below in all its undead, pulpy goodness.
Be the first to witness the beginning of the end of the world with this early look at AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE. Acclaimed Harvey Award-winning writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa’s (Stephen King’s Carrie) jaw-dropping script comes to undead life with the help of Eisner award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla (Guardians of the Galaxy) who deftly injects horror and fear into the once idyllic, safe town of Riverdale.
AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE hits comic shops Oct. 9 and will be Archie’s first direct market only, NOT for all ages, horror title. For more information and updates visit AfterlifewithArchie.com and to find your nearest comic shop head to ComicShopLocator.com.
