With its first story still sinking its teeth into the denizens of Riverdale, Archie Comics' first all-out horror series "Afterlife With Archie" has caused some readers to take a second look at the publisher.

CBR TV: Aguirre-Sacasa & Francavilla Animate "Afterlife with Archie"

Now with the zombie epic from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla in full swing, Archie is hoping to entice readers to go deeper with the series courtesy of "Afterlife With Archie+" -- a new digital version of the comic. The plussed up version of the series is available on the "Afterlife" app for $1 on top of the standard version of any given issue. With that, readers can access a layered, step-by-step version of the story that includes Aguirre-Sacasa's script pages, Francavilla's pencils and more making-of Easter Eggs.

Archie gave CBR an exclusive first look at the images from inside the app, which can be accessed via http://afterlifewitharchie.com/digital/
