Afterlife With Archie


Unread post by jemiNii da'Boss » 4 months ago

Afterlife with Archie is a comic book published by Archie Comics beginning in 2013, depicting a zombie apocalypse that begins in the town of Riverdale in an alternative reality. It is written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, with art by Francesco Francavilla, and is inspired by a zombie-themed variant cover which Francavilla did for an issue of Life with Archie.

The comic is Archie Comics’ first title to be sold only on the direct market (that is, in comic shops), as opposed to on newsstands; it is also the company’s first title not to be aimed at children and is rated “TEEN+”, as it includes content and subject matter never explored in any other title they published before, including extensive realistic violence, some gore, necrotic themes, disturbing scenes, and moderate language. The comic was conceived not long after Archie Comics officially dropped the Comics Code Authority standard from their entire line-up in 2011.

Issue #8 was the first to feature the company’s Archie Horror logo. The Archie Horror imprint also publishes a companion series titled Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The two titles share several characters, but they are not directly related to each other.
