WHO WILL BE JUGHEAD'S NEXT VICTIM? Afterlife With Archie #2 Bites This Week

There's a standing joke that the only reason half of America can't decide if Clark should be with Lois, is because they are still trying to figure out if Archie should be with Betty. When you are dealing with icons that renown, and part of a national identity, it can be hard to take them down unexpected roads. Hard, not impossible.

Writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, having just written the Hollywood remake of Carrie, isn't one to run from an edible challenge, and this week, the second issue of his Afterlife With Archie hits stands. 

I picked up the first issue, because I'm a raving fanatic of artist Francesco Francavilla, and in one dose the contagion spread. Now I'm writing this hoping to 'infect' you too, because hey, I'm that kind of guy.

A horror comic more than you would think Archie could ever print, it still amazingly holds that Riverdale feel. With the always hungry Jughead now even hungrier, and in search of a dining party to chow down on and with, check out this click-to-enlarge preview to see what your loose change should gobble up next.

 What do you think?
