Archie Comics reports “Afterlife with Archie” #4, released last Wednesday, is the fourth consecutive issue of the acclaimed and highly publicized horror series to sell out on the distributor level at Diamond. With that comes a second printing featuring a new cover by series artist Francesco Francavilla, and CBR has the exclusive first look at the image.
The cover stars Archie’s dog Vegas, who figures heavily into the issue written by series writer and freshly appointed Archie chief creative officer Roberto Aguirre Sacasa.
“This issue is definitely a turning point for Archie,” Aguirre-Sacasa said in a spoiler-filled interview with CBR. “I don’t want to say that from here on out, Archie’s a kick-ass, take-no-prisoners kind of guy. He’s still a kid, he’s still figuring things out. But he is also, maybe finally, growing up.”
The second printing of “Afterlife with Archie” #4 goes on sale April 9.
