The end of the world is nigh, and it’s all Reggie’s fault! This week, Matthew and Stephen pick up and review Afterlife with Archie #1 from Archie Comics. If you don’t like spoilers, don’t listen to this episode until after you’ve read the book…. and you really need to rush out and buy this book!
Couldn’t be happier about this announcement – Francesco Francavilla, one of Major Spoilers’ favorite artists, has been tapped to do the art for Archie Comics’ zombie series, Afterlife with Archie.
When an artist has been knocking it out of the park on a title it is sad to watch them leave, but what if an equally as talented artist were to fill that spot? Not it’s not as sad. Well put away your tissues because even though David Aja is taking a two issue break from Hawkeye, Black Bettle creator Francesco Francavilla will be taking over the art duties!
This week, Stephen and Matthew explore the excellence that is Black Beetle: No Way Out #1.
Black Beetle’s investigation of two local mob bosses is interrupted when a mysterious explosion murders them and a pub full of gangsters—taking out most of Colt City’s organized crime in one fell swoop. Who could pull off such a coup, and what danger might that murderous bomber do to Colt City and Black Beetle?
