AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE GETS A MAGAZINE FORMAT!
Great news, everyone! Starting in October, Archie Comics is gonna release the Afterlife WIth Archie chapters in bigger size in their new AWA Magazine. The new format will be on sale in supermarkets as well, on the magazine racks, so hopefully we’ll have more people jumping on board of our favorite horror book!
But I’ll leave to Roberto to give you some more info. From The Hollywood Reporter:
Each issue of the 48-page Afterlife with Archie Magazine will reprint the main story from an issue of the Afterlife comic, accompanied by all-new special features (including a preview of Aguirre-Sacasa’s new Sabrina series in the November issue). The magazine will retail for $4.99, with the first issue available on newsstands in early October, with comic store distribution available October 22.
“Afterlife exists because Francesco drew a magazine cover — his zombie variant for Life with Archie — so to have Afterlife reprinted in this format is just great and feels like a homecoming of sorts,” Aguirre-Sacasa told THR via email. “It places Afterlife in the proud traditions of horror magazines like Creepy and Eerie. And the larger format makes Francesco’s art look that much more spectacular. This is a truly thrilling development.”
Thrilling indeed! :)
While waiting for the Magazine to hit the stands, here’s a look at the covers for the first 2 issues.
