'Archie Comics' zombies up for new horror-comedy series

Coming to us courtesy MTV Geek -- which provided some great coverage from Emerald City Comic Con -- is news that Riverdale is going to start looking a lot more like Sunnydale later this year.

Called Afterlife with Archie, and penned by Glee writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, he says the book will serve as a "what if the Archie characters found themselves in a Stephen King novel like The Stand or a Sam Raimi movie like The Evil Dead?"

While this Archie Comics book won't likely become an all-out horror comic, haven't you always imagined Jughead Jones as a Daryl Dixon in training, just waiting to rock a crossbow? No? Just me, then?
