Francesco Francavilla Draws An Archie Zombie Comic

alwarchie1

Swamp Thing and Batman 72 artist Francesco Francavilla will draw Afterlife With Archie, the new zombie Archie comic from Archie Comics, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa out in October.

And why is Riverdale overrun with the Walking Dead? Well it's all down to one Sabrina the Teenage Witch unleashing a Deadworld spell.

It wasn't that long ago that anything with a zombie in it was banned by the Comics Code Authority. And now Archie is a zombie comic. What the hell next, gay interracial army weddings on the front cover?

No, wait, they've done that.

Man, things have changed.
