If you're an Archie fan, you don't want to miss this new series 'Afterlife with Archie' (a word play on the Life with Archie series), featuring the art of the amazing Francesco Francavilla (Black Beetle). The first issue was really fun and creepy, and I'm looking forward to the next one!

I don't want to give to much away, so I'll just tell you what the blurb says: This is how the end of the world begins! Harvey Award-winning writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Archie Meets Glee) and Eisner-winning artist Francesco Francavilla (Batman) 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! 

It all started with a variant that Francavilla did for Life With Archie #23. Writer Roberto Aquirre Sacasa liked the idea and pitched it to Archie Comics. Having read that first issue, this might turn out to be a big deal... Just sayin'.... If you haven't gotten a copy yet, well, what are you waitin' for!

We also get an excellent variant cover for the first issue, and as much as I don't pay all that much attention to the variant cover craze, I have to admit they're doing some good one's over there at Archie Comics.

Undercover Archie alert! Here's a poster of the variant I got from Andrew Pepoy at the Baltimore Comic Con. No butts about it, I like the original better!

And here's a poster of another variant Pepoy has done.... gotta love the EC Comics, Wally Wood inspired work of this!

And here's the actual comic:
