SWEET AS: The Best From Archie Comics' March 2014 Solicitations

When we Kiwis find something we like, we say it's "Sweet as". From another biting instalment of Afterlife With Archie, to the first collection of The Fox, when I'm looking at the best releases from Archie Comics for March 2014, these comics here make the 'Sweet As' grade:

 COVER OF THE MONTH:  ANDREW PEPOY 
 AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #5 

Boy, after reading this book you sure look at all the Riverdale cast differently. Here Veronica looks like she just be the next zombie appetiser. Good riddance I say - gives Cheryl Blossom more of a shot with Archie. Redheads like us have to stick together.

This issue: Escape from Riverdale Part 5. The do or die moment has arrived! With Lodge Manor under siege by flesh-eating zombies, and the rest of Riverdale in flames, the surviving members of our beloved gang must make a fateful decision: Do they stay in the only home they've ever known, or take their (slim) chances in the outside world?   The most earth-shattering decisions will be made in Riverdale history! (W) Roberto Aguirre Sacasa (A) Francesco Francavilla

 AN IDEA MORE PUBLISHERS NEED 
ARCHIE FUNHOUSE DOUBLE DIGEST #4 
As Reggie and Archie team-up to pull April Fool's Day pranks, you have to wonder why more publishers don't offer digest sized reads! 

They are the perfect bridge between graphic novels and comics, yet aside from a gallant effort by the former CrossGen, no one seems to want to join in. I mean what gives?
 HOT PICK  THE FOX VOL 1: FREAK MAGNET TP When Paul Patton, Jr. donned a costume, he thought it would be a quick way to make some news--now the strange and unusual can't help but be drawn to the freak-magnetism of the fabulous fighting Fox! Then, go back in time for a story featuring the world's first patriotic superhero, The Shield. Collects issues #1-5. (W) J. M. DeMatteis, Mark Waid (A) Dean Haspiel and various
