Books for Guys
Afterlife with Archie, Vol. 1: Escape from Riverdale by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (author),
Francesco Francavilla (illustrator) [First in a currently one-volume series; Volume 1 collects issues 1-5]
Jughead’s dog, Hot Dog, is hit by a car, so he goes to Sabrina Spellman (Sabrina the Teenage Witch, who originated in Archie Comics) to see if she can help. Her aunts say bringing creatures back to life is not allowed, but Sabrina secretly tries anyway. It works, but not in the way everyone was hoping: Hot Dog is a zombie dog, and Riverdale soon has a full-blown zombie apocalypse on its hands, so Archie and friends must do what they can to survive. This is Archie for anyone who wishes Archie was darker, gorier, and zombie-infested.
