Frankie, Dennis, and Johnny review Afterlife with Archie as written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and illustrated by Francesco Francavilla. In this episode we discuss one of the gang’s inexperience with the world of Archie Comics and Riverdale; which one of the GNES gang talks about farts the most; the possibly incestuous relationship inside the comic book; the scene in the book that made us cry; Archie’s past with characters like Punisher and Predator; how we link The Good Earth to Afterlife with Archie and other zombie fiction; and do you pick Betty or Veronica.
