I'm a nostalgic fool for the Archie universe and everyone knows the best character in Riverdale is the hamburger-loving Jughead Jones. While Archie is off bemoaning his feelings for Betty and Veronica, Jughead is taking care of the real problems facing Riverdale such as an evil principal brainwashing students and the unfair closure of the beloved Pops All-Nite Diner. Erica Henderson and Chip Zdarsky bring a fresh take to a beloved series while still remaining faithful to the original. As a massive Jughead fan, I had a really fun time with this one. And if you want more, volume 2 is out and SPOILER ALERT Sabrina the Teenage Witch makes an appearance. What a time to be alive!
In the grand tradition of comic book reboots like ARCHIE VOL. 1, Archie Comics proudly presents... JUGHEAD VOL. 1--from the comics dream team of Chip Zdarsky (HOWARD THE DUCK) and Erica Henderson (THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL)!
Riverdale High provides a quality education and quality hot lunches, but when one of those is tampered with, JUGHEAD JONES swears vengeance! Well, I mean, he doesn't "swear." This is still Archie Comics after all.
Collects JUGHEAD issues #1-6, plus bonus features.
