I don't typically buy second printings. But that cover is very desirable. Maybe my favorite issue of Afterlife with Archie yet.

I've never read an Archie comic in my life because it seems like it's aimed at a younger audience but I keep hearing about Afterlife so what's it like? Is it a spoof of zombie apoc or is it actually a horror? I love Francavilla so I kinda want to get this.

The zombie craze continues! Btw is this a regular comic book, or one of those ehh "Digest Magazines" that Archie is usually published on. I'm intrigued by this. Been hearing quite a bit about it.

It's very un-Archie-like. Most of their comics are targeted toward 8-12 year old girls, this one is targeted toward adults. It's kind of funny, but I'd say more so horror. It's also more enjoyable if you are familiar with Archie's cast of characters though, and see them thrown into this crazy world.

There's a dog in this seri-nope. No, no, no ,no. No. Not even. Nope.

I've seen what happens to characters in this book. That dog is a gonner and I don't have the guts for that.
