When Jughead's beloved pet Hot Dog is killed in a hit and run, Jughead turns to the only person he knows who can help bring back his furry best friend - Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Using dark, forbidden magic, Sabrina is successful and Hot Dog returns to the land of the living. But he's not the same - and soon, the darkness he brings back with him from beyond the grave begins to spread, forcing Archie, Betty, Veronica and the gang to try to escape from Riverdale!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Archie: The Married Life turned the Archiverse upside down to revelatory effect, so it's saying a mouthful that this latest gamble is even better. The cast is familiar Archie, Betty, Veronica, Moose, etc. though matured in both style and substance. (You'll encounter such verboten words as sexy and dammit.) It begins when Jughead's pet, Hot Dog, is killed by a car. He takes the carcass to Sabrina (you know, the teenage witch?), who, in a moment of pity, enacts a bit of necromancy. Hot Dog comes back, all right, but as a frothing devil-dog whose first victim is his owner. Zombie Jughead then storms the Halloween dance, eating Big Ethel in front of everyone and spawning the Riverdale plague, while the rest of our gang barricades themselves in Lodge Manor. The fact that this sounds humorous is Aguirre-Sacasa's best weapon: readers have 70 years' worth of warm memories to serve as sepia-toned flashbacks while Arch and the gang fall apart physically and mentally. Francavilla dials up the garish colors and compositions of comic-book horror, but it's the wrenching sadness that sticks with you; for example, Archie's bludgeoning of his undead dad is intercut with sweet memories of their life together. This is a tough, sad story of our fearless, unlikely leader, a red-headed boy who has finally, at long last, become a man before our very eyes. --Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2014 Booklist"
