This was just an awesome volume!! The art is just beyond great! It makes me so sad that there are no more to read. I really hope they continue the series one day because this is the perfect combo for fans of Archie and zombies!!

I love weird things, but this was way too weird for my liking.

After the banal first volume of the series, these volume leaps forward into a new, engaging story with interesting ideas spun from the characters and situations in the Archie universe.
So this hasn't been marked as read prior to now because I thought it was gong to include the upcoming 11th issue. While mildy frustrated, I am at least happy with this book and will still buy it in trade. Issue 10 is definitely the best. ...more

This was another five star read, but my big question is: What happened?? Why did this series stop at issue 10? The groundwork is excellent but then the story just stops. This volume moves the story along as we see this is more than just the usual zombie apocalypse (sounds weird to say it like that) but this is a Cthulhu type event and the zombies aren't mindless but are being lead by their leader, JugDead. The volume starts out with a heavy Lovecraft type story where Lovecraft himself is a chara ...more

Read as single volumes.

I find that Zombie infection stories are the most fun at the beginning, and then they tend to devolve in ways that aren't quite satisfying. Nobody will do things you'd consider doing in real life, because they're too busy taking the most dramatic (read: violent) course of action. Also the story will drag on into a boring and repetitive cycle of hiding - oh no, zombies! - hiding, - omg zombies! - hiding again.

Afterlife with Archie is doing something more interesting than t

This was better than the first volume so that was good. I really liked the last two issues dealing with Reggie's regret and Josie and the Pussycats.

My only complaint is that issue 11 has been continually delayed. The story isn't over. They're promising new issues this year. I hope so because it's freaking awesome. ...more

Still ferociously entertaining, but the seams show a bit more in this second volume of "Horrorverse" Archie tales that finds the gang on the run and traveling the countryside. A haunted hotel story is memorable for the lengthy discussions between Archie and Jughead (the real Jug before being reanimated as a zombie). A Sabrina solo outing that finds her wed to one of the darker forces from the world of H.P. Lovecraft is clever and fun for Cthulhu Mythos aficionados. Reggie continues to grow darke ...more

love excellent Horrorverse adaptations when an author takes something that is banal and twists it and gives it some bite, which is precisely what Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa did with the saccharine sweet Riverdale story. Roberto pulls out an end of the world zombie apocalypse story from the depths of pep rally games, love triangles, and high school melodrama.

I love it so much more than the original.

In this volume, the gang is on the run. There is a horde of the undead being led by a decaying and bloo

I am reviewing the single issues, since as far as I can tell this trade paperback, like the last two issues of the Betty R.I.P. story arc, has never seen the light of day. Ah well, at least the series went out on a high note. Despite the fact that Aguirre-Sacasa and Francavilla left some loose threads I recommend Afterlife with Archie without hesitation. It’s a smart, subversive horror comic that turned the Archie universe on its head.

I wanted way more spooky Sabrina! Not as good and engaging as the first volume, Betty’s way to good for Archie to want to actually MARRY him. The writing just wasn’t nearly as fun as the first volume.

SO good. Issue #10 was great. Need to see more of (view spoiler) in the future issues (if they EVER come out). I also really liked everything that was going on with (view spoiler). I think that was this volume. I read in single issue and need more! ...more

Issues 6-10. Fun and creepy. Good for Archie fans who also like horror stories.
I didn't enjoy this one quite as much as volume 1, but it was still pretty good. The stuff going on with Sabrina is absolutely insane, Josie and the Pussycats dark past was interesting, and that cliffhanger killed me! I hope they'll continue this series soon, we all need to see what's going to happen next. ...more
