More of a mediocre melodramatic zombie story than an Archie comic.

it wasn't a story that pulled me in. i didn't feel like i could read it non-stop.

Really good and very creepy! Not your usual Archie that's for sure. Some very disturbing and legitimately scary bits to this tale. I dreamed of zombies the night I finished this.

I had no idea what to expect from this when I picked this up, but once I did I couldn't put it down. A different twist for an Archie story, but as a horror fan I enjoyed this and really hope the library picks up the rest of the series, I would love to read them all to the end.

An out of continuity tale- which is probably why it works better than the typical Archie always torn between two or three women, Jughead gorges himself eating, and Reggie's a jerk storylines of the usual Archieverse. Zombies arise in Riverdale, sending the usual gang into unexpected directions and exposing secrets. One such friendship dynamic will never look the same after this. It's definitely not for kids, and it's not rendered in the traditional style that you would expect out of Archie comics, which is another reason why it works well.

Good story, but this would have been so much better if the art was done in the same style as actual Archie comics. And it's just not even close. A couple of the variant covers at the back were classic Archie style, and they were awesome.
