Being Archie must suck sometimes. You have multiple-issue dreams in which you are sometimes married to Veronica and sometimes to Betty. You have to hang out with KISS. And now, the zombie apocalypse is coming to Riverdale.

Check out one of the awesome covers at Bloody Disgusting.

Here's the rundown:

WRITTEN BY: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
ART BY: Francesco Francavilla, Jack Morelli
COVER: Francesco Francavilla
PRICE: $2.99
NEW ONGOING SERIES! “Escape From Riverdale”—This is how the end of the world begins… Harvey Award-winning writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Stephen King’s Carrie, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) and Eisner-winning artist Francesco Francavilla (Batman, Black Beetle) take Archie and the gang where they’ve never been before—to the grave and back! A horrific accident sets off a series of grim events and Sabrina the Teenage Witch must try to repair the unspeakable evil her spell has unleashed. Gasp in horror as Riverdale faces an impending zombie Arch-pocalypse in this brand-new, spine-tingling ongoing series—but be warned, kiddies, this one’s not for the faint of heart! For TEEN+ readers.

Darn that Sabrina. I guess she doesn't know it all.

After the whole Archie get married but it's only a dream debacle, my wife has been less enthusiastic about her favorite comic. Despite my half-hearted urging, I couldn't get her to buy an Archie meets KISS book. Given her proclivity for horrible zombie nightmares, she probably won't want to follow this series either.

Will you read "Escape from Riverdale" when it's released in October? What are some of your favorite crossover comics? (I'm thinking mostly of the recent Mars Attacks! crossovers IDW has done. Martians versus Transformers? Hell, yeah.)
