I have scoffed at the idea of this since I heard it existed. “Zombie Archie? Why do we need that?” But, after reading Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, I decided that I needed to give Afterlife with Archie a try. And boy is it silly. Well, and a bit scary. But mostly silly scary.
After the interesting plot and storytelling in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, I was disappointed in this one. It’s pretty much just a straight-forward zombie story. The one thing that this one had the Sabrina didn’t have, though, is amazing artwork. Where the story was lacking, the beautiful art made up for it. I just wish that we could have the story from Sabrina with the art from Afterlife. Then, Aguirre-Sacasa would have a great, highly entertaining graphic novel on his hands.
