We’re kicking off our annual all-horror October with 2013’s Afterlife with Archie comics, from writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and artist Francesco Francavilla. Jughead’s beloved pup Hot Dog has been hit by a car, and when he asks Sabria the Teenage Witch to bring him back to life, he comes back wrong. Hot Dog bites Jughead, starting a zombie apocalypse in Riverdale. Archie, Betty, Veronica, and a crew of other traumatized survivors have to leave their town behind to go look for help. We discuss our limited personal contexts for the 80-year Archie franchise, how this series feels like a rough draft for the Riverdale TV show, and how vampires could fit into all of this.
The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a book club style podcast covering a variety of genres and mediums including movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, and even audio fiction. Join your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
