Afterlife with Archie, Vol. 1: Escape from Riverdale by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

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.

3-stars
