Afterlife With Archie #1 - Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Francesco Francavilla, Jack Morelli

So I sought this book after reading "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" and loving it so much. While it doesn't quite live up to that book, it is a strong read and I very much enjoyed many things about this graphic novel. The book starts with the death of Jughead's pet, Hot Dog, and Jughead begging Sabrina, the resident witch, to help. Well, without much thought, Sabrina brings Hot Dog back to life, but she should have left well enough alone. Not only do her actions lead to her year-long banishment, but Hot Dog comes back to wreck havoc and spread a zombie virus.

The artwork in this graphic novel is dark and moody, just how I like it. It totally fits the plot and provides the reader with plenty of atmosphere. All of the favorite Archie characters are present and as I turned the pages, I was on pins and needles about who would die next. 

I will end this review asking for a moment of silence for my dead Juggie. He's my favorite character and although his legacy will forever be remember in Afterlife with Archie, he just didn't last long enough!


This book covers The Dead Will Walk square on my Halloween Bingo card since there are pretty much people turning into zombies (dogs too) left and right!
