If, however, you then asked me if I wanted to see a zombie story about Archie and the gang written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by Francesco Francavilla, I would've probably done some pretty quick backpedaling. That is exactly what I want to see, and now that Afterlife With Archie is finally on its way for a spoooooky Halloween debut, I can confirm that it's every bit as fun as you want it to be.

I just got done writing about Masters of the Universe villain Hordak and his Evil Horde. Now I'm writing about Jack Kirby's The Horde, which judging by the WWZ trailer, looked very similar to his unfinished apocalyptic disaster novel.
