In a new comic book called “Afterlife with Archie“, written by a writer from Glee, the zombie virus infects Riverdale (home of Archie, Jughead and the rest of the crew). Here is how it goes down:
Jughead’s beloved pooch Hotdog is run over by Reggie in his roadster. He convinces Sabrina to hatch a spell to bring back the pooch, but when Hotdog bites Jughead, he soon craves flesh.
Once Jughead becomes a member of the walking dead I think it may be time to pack up the zombie genre and lock it away for a while. The Walking Dead can stick around but everyone needs to start focusing on another horror staple. Maybe mummies or gargoyles are ripe for a revival.

Oh, my . . . but if Josie and Pussycats show up toting shotguns, I’ll totally buy that issue.
Now you have me eager to buy the comic just to see if the rest of the Archie-verse shows up to help the Riverdale gang kill zombies.
You know, I may have to pick this up myself. It’ll either be really fun or a huge train wreck of catacylsmic proportions. It’s almost like fan fiction somehow crossing the reality double center lines.
