I'd heard this was good, but had no idea what it would look like. What's the scoop on it?
It's rad. I forgot to include it in my list. A total oversight on my part.

It's genuinely creepy, there is a moody atmosphere to it that is captured well in both the writing & art. I haven't read an Archie comic in many many years, but the characters all felt right, true to their original archetypes but with some added depth - the scenario is treated mildly more adult-oriented, so they aren't as over-simplified as in the standard comics for kids.

I am already a fan of Francavilla's artwork from some other covers I've seen him do (the Doctor Who:Prisoners of Time series), but he rocks the interior sequential work as well. It's still cartoonish, but in a dark, moody, pulpy kind of way. Perfectly creepy looking.

If you're a stickler for your zombie characteristic rules, it may put you off that the zombie plague 'infection' starts with an animal biting a person, but otherwise this is a top notch book made by a couple of passionate creators & it shows (the writer talks about his enthusiasm for the project in the 1st issue letter column).

In no particular order:

Saga
Invincible
Chew
Harbinger
Quantum & Woody
Superior Spider-Man
Flash (And probably not for long looking at the new issue since Manapul/Bucchaletto)
All New X-Men
Wolverine & the X-Men
Daredevil

I'm shocked at the amount of Marvel and lack of DC in my top ten, a HUGE counterpart to a couple of years ago.
