    Afterlife With Archie / Sabrina

    So I grabbed the 1st issue of Sabrina and the Afterlife With Archie trade over the weekend - half way through the trade, this is GREAT stuff. Francovilla's art is moody and fantastic and the story is played straight enough that in spots it's actually a little creepy. I haven't read Sabrina yet but will shortly, flipped through it though and was surprised to see that it actually looks quite a bit darker than Afterlife even, theyr'e going for a sort of Rosemary's Baby vibe with this book it seems.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    I loved Afterlife With Archie and can't wait for the next run of issues. We know all the characters so it was just jump right in and don't worry about boring old character buildup. It was cool seeing the gang as NOT drawn cartoonish and in a different light (dark). I will check out Sabrina now that you mention it. Francavilla do that book too?

    He did not but the art in it is good. He did do the variant cover for it though.

    I got Sabrina Wednesday, haven't read it yet though. The art is definitely similar in style to Francavilla's, though not quite as good obviously.

    Afterlife With Archie is so good. I love that it's done totally serious. That book was a massive seller, Archie Comics' biggest by far.

    One thing I really dug was Dilton Doily. I love how they handled him.

    I don't recall Professor Flutesnoot being in it. Coach Kleats is.

    Sabrina #1 sold out.

    Finished the Afterlife With Archie trade last night and thought it was consistently well done. Now to hunt down #6 and pick up #7.

    And here's the cover art for #8 and the upcoming first 2 issues of Afterlife With Archie Magazine (which appears to just be reprints with a few extras tossed in).

    Does the TPB contain the 70s b&w horror story from some uncovered collection of unpublished stuff? Those are awesome, and are at the end of the issues.
