That was really enjoyable. I haven't been reading Archie all along - most of my experience with Archie is reading some ancient ones that belonged to my mom and her siblings up at our family cottage but I know enough to get by and to feel the heartstrings tugged a little bit. You know that this comic is not messing around from the first few pages, when Sabrina works forbidden magic to save Jughead's beloved dog and then reaps the consequences of that act. From that point on we're in Riverdale done via the Walking Dead but reading such a lighthearted comic in these dark terms just makes it that much more harrowing; especially as beloved characters start dropping like flies or are forced to do terrible things to keep themselves unzombified.

The art is shrouded in darkness even before the zombie infestation gets going properly. Jughead comes to Sabrina at night, the main events take place the night of a school dance or in people's sickrooms. Even if you hadn't seen the title of this volume beforehand you know from the colours and the art that this isn't your normal bright and sunny Riverdale where our worst problems are who Archie will take to the dance.

As Dillon says early on: "It's a zombie apocalypse...don't ask questions, just accept it."

Wonderful mash-up of The Walking Dead and Archie Comics. I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did. Definitely not for children, unless you are looking to traumatize them.
