It's been a while since we've had a new issue of Afterlife With Archie, the flagship horror title from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla that saw the zombie apocalypse hit Riverdale --- a full year, in fact, with the last issue hitting in May of 2015. Now, though, the book is set to return on May 25, and when it does, it's coming with a pair of issues that sound like they're being solicited by Stefon from Saturday Night Live.

Seriously: "Archie's hottest new title is Afterlife With Archie. This book has everything: Zombie attacks, horses, a parody of Goofus and Gallant with Archie and Reggie. Josie and the Pussycats, and Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose creator Jim Balent doing a variant cover." Check out a preview below!

 

 

Here's the solicitations for Afterlife #9 and 10:

AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #9
BETTY: RIP Pt. 4, “The Trouble with Reggie.” The Horror began in Riverdale when Reggie Mantle struck and killed Jughead’s beloved pooch Hot Dog. Since then, Reggie has been living with this secret knowledge—and terrible guilt. With no one to talk to about it, Reggie has started to crack under the strain. He is seeing visions of his dead friends—or are they literal ghosts? When an act of kindness prompts a confession from him, Reggie must decide for himself, once and for all—is there any good within him? Or is Reggie, as we’ve always suspected, beyond redemption? For TEEN+ Readers.
