Afterlife With Archie Earns Rave Reviews


ImageAfterlife With Archie #1 is available in comic shops everywhere today and is on track to being the best reviewed comic of 2013! See what everyone is talking about:


Newsarama – 9/10 Stars


“it’s a genuine horror story and proof positive that a good Elseworlds-style mash-up doesn’t require a line-wide reboot, but is simply a matter of taking two top creators and letting them run wild.”


Comic Vine  5/5 Stars


“Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa bridges the world of horror and Archie in a way you never thought possible.” 


“If you’re even slightly familiar with Archie and the gang and enjoy a good horror or zombie story, you owe it to yourself to check this out.”


“You’ll definitely want to sink your teeth into it.”


Comic Book Resources – 4.5/5 stars


“‘Afterlife With Archie’ #1 not only surpasses expectations, it’s one of the few truly scary comics in recent memory.”


“Aguirre-Sacasa and Francavilla are a deadly combination in more ways than one.”


“Easily one of the strongest series debuts of the year and well worth a read for horror comic fans.”

Bloody Disgusting – 4.5/5 Skulls

“a solid story with gorgeous art.” 

” This is a horror comic through and through, and it’s one you should be reading.” 


Plus Den of Geek states that “The first issue of the improbable Archie vs. zombies comic, Afterlife With Archie, is improbably, impossibly great!”  Comics Alliance says “it’s an absolutely gorgeous comic” and “The end result is one of those rare, perfect comics for Halloween” and Nerdist has chosen Afterlife With Archie #1 as one of their top picks for Comic Book Day, stating that it is “a delightfully twisted take on the classic Archie universe, and Francavilla’s artwork really elevates the material from phantasmic to fantastic” and that “Aguirre-Sacasa and Francavilla are like peanut butter and chocolate together – a terrific combination that we should be kicking ourselves for not discovering sooner.”
