My NBC readers I would like to let you know that I have failed you. One of the chief functions of my writing here at Nothing But Comics is steering you, the reader, towards great comics. So for all the precious indie comics that I’ve championed on the site or all the Marvel books that I swore up and down were awesome I really whiffed on one title and that was Afterlife With Archie. This should have been a no brainer, I love zombie stories, I’m not reading any zombie comics and I love Francesco Francavilla, an illustrator that our own Josh aka Ithosapien once enquired if he had “made a deal with the devil” to be as talented as he is. Still early on in the sites inception Cosmo sent out one of many mass group e-mails asking if anybody was going to be reading Afterlife With Archie and my response was meh. Yes it’s Francesco Fracavilla doing horror but Archie? Really? So I’ve spent the better part of the year seeing all the praise heaped upon the title while wishing I could see some Francavilla interiors, still asking myself that central question to the conundrum, Archie? Really? Yes really because Afterlife With Archie is a fantastic comic that takes all the tropes of great teenage horror and then morphs it into something far more interesting.
