Exclusive First Look: AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #5

The bad times for Archie and the gang in Riverdale continue.

As we hungrily await the next issue of AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE, Archie Comics was kind enough to share a couple pages of issue #5. The series has caught many off guard and is not just another zombie story. There has been a lot of heart and emotion in the issues as we see these familiar and lovable characters thrusted into a dark and terrifying world. We've been on the edge of our seats since the first issue.

Here's some words from the creators:

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa: "I don’t think any of us quite knew where we would end up, at the conclusion of this first arc, when we began this tale. And we definitely weren’t prepared for the response we’ve gotten from Archie fans and horror fans, which has been overwhelming and humbling. Rest assured, this is just the beginning for our hapless survivors. Next issue brings us a Sabrina stand-alone, and then we’re hitting the road with Archie and his surviving gals and pals—and believe me, things are going to get much, much worse…"

Francesco Francavilla: "This first arc has been an emotional rollercoaster to draw, specially the last two status-changing issues. Hope you guys have enjoyed it as much as we did making this and hope you are sticking around for more cause there is plenty more on its way to you."

In this first page, we see Reggie Mantle and Kevin Keller.

In this page, we see the Jason and Cheryl Blossom, Dilton Doiley, and Veronica.

AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #5 is on sale May 7.

Oh my god this series is amazing. I can't wait to read this around Halloween though. It seems perfect for that.

If you haven't ready any Afterlife, you're really missing out.

Never read an Archie Comic before, i don't know many of the characters, but seriously, this is one of the best comics on the shelves today. Every issue surpass the previous one!

Archie deals with zombie in one universe, but soon to die in another.

I have to wait until May 7 for another issue? This is way worse than the week long Arrow breaks people whine about
