This one is pretty dang cool. I just LOVE this sort of thing — taking an existing fictional universe we’re all very familiar with, something from the common pop-culture lexicon, and imbuing it with a new sense, especially something dark. That’s exactly what the creators of “Afterlife with Archie” have done. It officially releases 10 / 09 / 13! Sooooo, get to that comic store today, horror fans.
Here’s what the official description has to say ::
“NEW ONGOING SERIES! “Escape From Riverdale”—This is how the end of the world begins… Harvey Award-winning writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Stephen King’s Carrie, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) and Eisner-winning artist Francesco Francavilla (Batman, Black Beetle) take Archie and the gang where they’ve never been before—to the grave and back! A horrific accident sets off a series of grim events and Sabrina the Teenage Witch must try to repair the unspeakable evil her spell has unleashed. Gasp in horror as Riverdale faces an impending zombie Arch-pocalypse in this brand-new, spine-tingling ongoing series—but be warned, kiddies, this one’s not for the faint of heart! For TEEN+ readers.”

FUN stuff with an absolutely A-list team at the helm. Definitely one to watch.
