Press Release

Afterlife with Archie, the brand new ongoing series written by Harvey award winning writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Stephen King’s The Stand) and Eisner Award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla (Black Beetle) will be immediately going back for a 2nd printing.

The highly anticipated horror series dominated New York Comic Con and has received rave reviews from notable comic and news sites including The Associated Press, USA Today, Huffington Post, Fangoria Magazine, IGN, Comic Book Resources, Newsarama, Bleeding Cool, Bloody Disgusting and many more.

"Afterlife With Archie #1 not only surpasses expectations, it's one of the few truly scary comics in recent memory" -- Comic Book Resources

“A genuinely terrifying horror comic that looks absolutely stunning” -- IGN

"It’s everything about Archie taken to this moody, blood-soaked extreme, and Francavilla’s art hits that note with absolute perfection" -- Comics Alliance

“Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa bridges the world of horror and Archie in a way you never thought possible” -- Comic Vine

Series artist Francavilla created a special cover for the 2nd printing of Afterlife With Archie #1, which can be ordered with the code SEP138000. Orders will be due 10/21/13 for an on-sale of 11/6/13. The debut issue was the fastest selling Archie comic of all time and is Archie’s first direct market only series ever, taking the Archie characters in a dark, horror-inspired direction.

In order to allow this phenomenal creative team to provide the same level of quality on subsequent issues that they did on issue #1, Archie has adjusted the release schedule from monthly to every six weeks. The revised schedule is as follows:

#2 on-sale moves from 11/13/13 to 11/20/13 (AUG130985 & AUG130986)
#3 on-sale moves from 12/11/13 to 1/1/14 (SEP130883 & SEP130884)

Issue #4 is being re-solicited in the November PREVIEWS (#302) with new order codes.
