After a long hiatus, Afterlife with Archie #9 arrived on comic book racks last month, and as there were not enough copies to satisfy the undead demand of its readership, Archie Horror is taking the issue back to the printers for a July 6th release. Additionally, the second printing will be a variant, with an all new cover by Francesco Francavilla.
Since collecting variant covers is also desirable for series collectors, there will be nearly as much competition to get this 2nd printing in your hands, so you may want to call your comic retailer and pre-order this one (Diamond code APR168799).
AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE #9 2nd Printing Variant (APR168799)
BETTY: RIP Pt. 4, “The Trouble with Reggie.” The Horror began in Riverdale when Reggie Mantle struck and killed Jughead’s beloved pooch Hot Dog. Since then, Reggie has been living with this secret knowledge—and terrible guilt. With no one to talk to about it, Reggie has started to crack under the strain. He is seeing visions of his dead friends—or are they literal ghosts? When an act of kindness prompts a confession from him, Reggie must decide for himself, once and for all—is there any good within him? Or is Reggie, as we’ve always suspected, beyond redemption? For TEEN+ Readers.
