Afterlife with Archie #1 Sells Out & Gets a 2nd Printing
Afterlife with Archie is a hit for Archie Comics. Not only has it received praise but it also is a hit with fans selling out at the distributor in 5 hours. The new ongoing series written by Harvey award winning writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Eisner award winning artist Francesco Francavilla will be immediately going back for a 2nd printing. Series artist Francavilla created a special cover for the 2nd printing of Afterlife With Archie #1. The debut issue was the fastest selling Archie comic of all time and is Archie’s first direct market only series ever, taking the Archie characters in a dark, horror inspired direction.
I expect the second printing to receive continued interest as the comic was just featured in Entertainment Weekly and other mainstream media. You can read our review here.
