P.M. Bradshaw, October 13, 2014 (view all comments by P.M. Bradshaw)
In 2003, Archie Comics issued a ‘Cease & Desist’ order to Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for his play, Archie's Weird Fantasy. In it, Archie comes out as gay. He simply changed the characters names, called it Weird Comic Book Fantasy, and it was on with the show.

A decade later, Archie Comics is paying Aguirre-Sacasa to write Afterlife with Archie, and is, in fact, their new Chief Creative Officer.

This is a really fun graphic novel. Archie and the gang find themselves in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. It could have been corny or dumb or fit for a TV laugh track, but it isn’t. It manages to hold true to these over 70-year old characters and somehow be fresh and with the times, too. And a little scary on top of that. Francesco Francavilla’s artwork, like his work in the Black Beetle and Captain America & Bucky, is top notch.

Afterlife with Archie: Escape from Riverdale is a really fun read. It collects the first five or six issues of the monthly comic. I can’t wait for the next installment.
