Coming off their successful and critically acclaimed Afterlife With Archie, the comic book series that set the Archie gang in a Walking Dead-style zombie apocalypse, Archie Comics has announced a follow up in the style of another popular TV series. Game of Archie places the gang in a medieval epic filled with dragons, sex, and lots of political backstabbing in the style of Game Of Thrones.
In the new series, Betty and Veronica are the leaders of two great house in the world of Riverdaleos. They must fight against each other for the hand of Archie, who is the son of the former king of the land, exiled at a young age, and prophesied to return to the kingdom on the backs of his wondrous dragons. Meanwhile, King Reggie struggles to keep hold of the throne while dealing with the political intrigue from Moose, Midge and Kevin Keller. In the north, Jughead Snow finds his place in the world after joining the Night’s Watch and fighting against the oncoming threat of the White Walkers.
Will this series be as good as Afterlife With Archie? It’ll certainly be another different take on the classic characters that everyone has come to know and love. Hopefully this will be fun, but one thing’s for sure, Archie Is Coming.
