Todd & Joe Have Issues 10/19/17: Afterlife with Archie #1

The Archie gang! For nearly 80 years, the picture of wholesome, middle America teenage fun! That was until 2013 when Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla decided to take a different approach.

In one of the many attempts at a genre mash up, your ‘something classic’ plus ‘horror element’ formula, more times than not, it doesn’t work. This one went over like gangbusters! So much so, not only zombies were safe

Very early in the run, an issue saw Sabrina (of Teenage Witch fame) be offered up as a bride to a Cthulhu monster. THAT did so well, it spun off another book, the Chillinng Adventures of Sabrina.

THAT did so well, it spawned ANOTHER spin off, this time called Jughead the Hunger where now we have werewolves! But the real success of this can also be tied to the current CW Network show, Riverdale. All because of zombies.

Any discussion, thoughts, feelings, criticisms of this week’s selection can be placed below in the comments section. As well as suggestions about future choices for one shot issues to add to our list.
