"The sheer strength of this book as a horror title continues to astound." -- WIRED "One of the biggest surprises of the year has been how willing Archie Comics has been to take risks." -- MENTAL FLOSS "Afterlife with Archie is a subversively intelligent horror epic." -- PASTE MAGAZINE "AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE brims with tension and, as usual, elements of surprise." -- NEWSARAMA "A superbly conceived and executed effort that only gets better." -- COMIC BOOK RESOURCES "Let's give it up for the return of AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE because folks, this is one hell of a series." -- BLOODY DISGUSTING "Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla have created a wonderful new comic world that manages to punch you in the gut with each emotional development." -- COMIC VINE "A fresh take on an existing property that is neither a reboot nor a gimmicky identity-swap, a reinvention of character that both terrifies and evokes sympathy. Well done, Archie." -- FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND "With its compelling narrative and vibrant palette, Afterlife with Archie's return makes for a frighteningly good read." -- IGN "Vivid, disturbing horror." -- UPROXX "I think all of us knew that when the zombie apocalypse happened, it would be Reggie Mantle's fault." -- COMICS ALLIANCE "A darn good read." -- CAPTAIN COMICS
