EXCLUSIVE: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the scribe who helped fix the troubled Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, surprised a lot of people when Deadline disclosed in March he would write a new line of the venerable Archie Comics with a macabre twist: zombie outbreak. Now, they’re about to release Afterlife With Archie, and here is a trailer just in time for New York Comic-Con this week. Aguirre-Sacasa is also writing an Archies movie for Warner Bros with Jason Moore directing, but there will be no flesh-eating corpses in that one.

As for the comic, it just came out today and the first issue has sold out. I guess they can print more, but maybe they don’t because it will diminish the value of the comic that so many thoughtful geeks have already carefully sealed in mylar in mint condition.

Hollywood routinely brings out the star power for San Diego Comi-Con, but its New York counterpart appears to be getting some love too.

Chris Columbus will join Submarine Entertainment’s Dan Braun and Josh Braun, with writer-director Mike Dougherty (X-Men 2, Superman Returns), tomorrow for the panel Creepy: Reborn and Undead from 11 AM-noon in room 1A14 at Javits Center. There, they will discuss the direction of the horror anthology feature the Brauns, Columbus, Michael Barnathan and Sarah Feldmann Sheehan are producing based on the classic Warren horror title Creepy. Also on the panel is Creepy editor Philip Simon and Overstreet’s JC Vaughn. Columbus will write and direct one of the four stories and oversee creative together with 1492′s Barnathan.

Young fanboys might not be aware, but Creepy was a horror comic magazine staple before the era of graphic novels,  when it was published from 1964-1983 and featured work by some of the top artists like Frank Frazetta and Spider-Man artist Steve Ditko, and writers like Bernie Wrightson, Gene Colan, Richard Corben, Al Williamson, Wally Wood and a host of others.
