Afterlife with Archie - Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey Friday, August 16, 2013

Archie versus the Zombie Apocalypse. Nuff said. 

From assembling the Avengers in the Dark Age to reimagining Calvin and Hobbes into hardboiled detective noir drama, the works of Francesco Francavilla has been well-chronicled here at The Daily Zombies. Which explained our joy upon learning the fact that the talented Italian artist will be well-utilized with an otherwise dubious comic book series: Afterlife With Archie. Yes, Archie as in Archie Comics. 

As unlikely as the synopsis of the adventures might sound, this particular Zombie Apocalypse kicks off with Jughead's dog Hot Dog being run over by a car, resulting in Jughead seeking the ill-advised assistance of Sabrina the Teenage Witch to revive it. As anyone familiar with zombie stories would have expected, the undead dog bits Jughead and turns him into a zombie thus thrusting Archie's hometown of Riverdale in a full-blown Zombie Apocalypse on the night of the Riverdale Halloween dance.

While this would more likely than not be one of those run-of-the-mill crossover of genres, Afterlife with Archie will be written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who recently wrote the scripts for Carrie, the remake of Stephen King’s “Carrie”, with art by Francesco Francavilla. With the notable caliber of creators involved, we are truly intrigued by this title that is currently set to hit the comic book stores in October.

Head over to Hero Complex to check out an in-depth interview with both Sacasa and Francavilla.

For now, hit the jump to check out the trailer of the series as well as a sneak preview courtesy of Comic Book Resources.

Afterlife with Archie is currently scheduled to hit the stores on October 9th.
