Archie Andrews and the Riverdale gang are some of the most enduring characters in comics history. They’ve teamed up with superheroes, met countless pop music icons, taught Bible lessons, and fought Sharknados. Their stories range from innocently humorous vignettes to deeply emotional personal drama; Archie married both Betty and Veronica in divergent story arcs that converged again with Archie’s death. Archie Comics as a company has taken on a number of licenses through the years and never been afraid to push the boundaries of comics as an art form. I guess it was inevitable that the zombie apocalypse would eventually make it to Riverdale.

Writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla , creators with whom I am unfamiliar, eschew the easy camp of a zombified Archie to tell a darkly serious tale. In a premise that owes much to The Walking Dead and Dawn of the Dead , the main characters struggle to survive as they are forced to destroy their own loved ones. The zombie origin is clearly supernatural, an occurrence which lays the groundwork for a deeper mystery that unfolds as the story progresses.

Francavilla’s artwork is heavily inked with thick lines and deeply contrasting tones. The color palette is awash in orange, red, and brown, like a film of decaying blood over a stuttering movie projector. This approach minimizes the impression of the monsters by smoothing over details of appearance, but throws the bouts of sudden violence and residual gore into sharp relief against the survivors from Riverdale. It’s heavily stylized and minimalistic, a perfect portrayal of a world that’s rapidly decaying.
