Afterlife With Archie Sells Out First Issue
“Afterlife With Archie” – a zombie-themed portrayal of Archie’s hometown of Riverdale – has sold out its first issue on its debut day. Poor Hot Dog has been hit by a car and Jughead tries to save him with the help of some otherworldly tactics. Unfortunately for Hot Dog, Jughead is no Einstein and already short on brains, so his attempts only succeed in turning Hot Dog into a Zombie Dog who then bites Jughead and turns him into a zombie and then Jughead feels like dancing and, well, let’s just say Riverdale is a good place for zombies to congregate.
The dark-themed comic is written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who is also penning an Archie movie for Warner Bros. [though without the zombie angle].
