AFTERLIFE With ARCHIE!
~~ Click on the image for biggie ~~
Hello Pulp Friends,
After my acclaimed set of covers for ARCHIE MEETS KISS (which contributed to my Eisner nomination as Best Cover Artist as well), I was SUPER happy to be asked to provide a new variant cover for the folks of Riverdale. :)
This time I played the old EC/Warren horror magazine cover card by having Archie face a zombified Jughead and Co.
Here's an excerpt from the Archie Comics website:
"Just when you thought it was safe to stroll through the Riverdale cemetery at night… AOL’s Comics Alliance unveiled the variant cover of Life with Archie #23 where Archie encounters his undead friends, courtesy of Archie Meets KISS cover artist Francesco Francavilla, who lends his talents to Archie once again. No stranger to giving Riverdale a spooky facelift, this latest effort from Francavilla further cements Archie’s flexibility in limitless story possibilities.
While the story itself contains no sign of zombies, it serves as a good indicator of more stunning covers to come that’ll keep readers on their toes. When it comes to Archie Comics, expect the unexpected."
I would like to add that my foray in the ARCHIE world is not over yet ;)
Have a wonderful Pulp Sunday, everyone.
