After far too long of a delay, Archie Comics through its new Archie Horror imprint is about to release Afterlife with Archie on May 6th, 2015. That’s a lot of Archie in one sentence. With the new issue, Archie Horror has sent out a look at the main cover and variant cover that Francesco Francavilla has put together that’s just beautiful and we get several preview pages as well from him as well as lettered pages of the script from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
We seriously cannot recommend this book enough for people to try out.
Plot concept: “A Ghost Story.” Contrary to popular belief, the current zombie outbreak is not the first time a shadow fell across Riverdale and its citizens. As the survivors hunker down in a hotel to wait out a snowstorm, Hiram Lodge and Mary Andrews relive the darkest chapter of their town’s history. Ten years ago, the adults of Riverdale struck a terrible bargain with the witches of Greendale, setting the stage for the present-day apocalypse.
