Comments: Wow is Jughead violent in video games. He kills everything in sight whether he has to or not.
The art is done in a childish style. The characters look as much like children as teens.
Weatherbee and Grundy are certainly drawn different then you are used to. If you did not know it was them you would never recognize them. The same goes for Betty and Veronica except for their hair color.
Part of the story is done as a play on Game of Thrones. It is done with an Archie flare of course. Jughead is Jughead in any time so he just wants hamburgers in medieval times. The art on the faces is really plain. The dragon is not very impressive.
Aw Jughead you have just got to love him. He is to smart for his own good at times. He will stand up to authority.
The backup story is from Jughead # 1 (1949) with art by Samm Schwartz. "Experiment Perilous!" Jughead gets involved in a rare experiment. It does not have good results.

Comments: Jughead is a character, he is something different. He is still a mooch and after food a lot. That is what makes him Jughead.
Now as Jughead sleeps he is awakened or is he dreaming? January McAndrews shows up needing help.
The art style here is frumpy. January is illustrated so plain looking.
Jughead is a natural at understanding time travel. His bending of the rules attitude works well with it.
His attitude and intelligence are simple amazing. You have never seen anyone quite like him.
Can this new Principal break Jughead? Only time will tell.
"Mistaken Identity" Starring Archie's Pal Jughead in a classic tale. Jughead has a Uncle Herman. His uncle is as strange and weird as he is.
Jughead Jones is one weird character who bucks the rules.

Comments: Jughead is accused of bring a knife to school. Jughead does have a way about him. He does not like being framed that is for sure.
Jughead does have a vivid imagination. He can create a whole new world in which secret agents and spies exist.
The art has people's faces being drawn to wide. The fingers lack detail.
Are Jughead's dreams all dreams or maybe do they have some truth in them? Jughead is one weird dude.
"Penny-Wise" This is a classic tale from 1950. Jughead is always so desperate for food. He will look for any way to get it. His life though is always fun to watch to see the ways he comes up with to feed himself.
"The Missing Links" Another classic tale from 1950. Jughead's ancestors were all like him. It is always entertaining to learn about Jughead's ancestors.
Jughead is and always will be one weird character.

Comments: Jughead is out to save Riverdale High by first proving something wrong is going on. The teachers have all been replaced. The classes have all changed.
Jughead is shown on a pirate adventure as he travelled back in time. His mission has to do with food of course. Is it all a dream though? Maybe. The story though does not really fit in with the ongoing main story.
Jughead does get the gang to believe him. So its students vs teachers.
The story has the characters as realistic just the situation is unrealistic.
"Pardon my Bumper" This is a classic tale from 1949. Jughead gets into a fix and than has the Jughead luck to get out of it. The art style is classic as well and it is different having only Jughead from the gang in a story. It is funny though how the story ends.
"Soupy the Cynic" Another classic tale from 1949. Jughead has a cousin Souphead and he could learn how to treat females. Jughead's efforts are met with less than spectacular results.

Comments: Principal Stanger has changed the school. It now looks like a secret agent training ground.
Now the gang goes off to investigate Stanger and at his old school they find weirdness. The gang they meet there is something else entirely.
Jughead & Pals in Super Teens "Deadly Ringers!" Here some good old fashioned super-heroes face some anti super-heroes. This little interlude is well done and does have lots of action.
Than we are back to the main story. Has Stanger won? Tune in next time to find out.
The classic strips are "The Run-Around" with script and art by Bill Vigoda. Jughead does find himself in a unique situation. He comes up with a unique solution.
"Bewitched Battered and Bewildered" Script by Bill Vigoda and art by George Frese. Mr. Weatherbee and Miss Grundy get excited over Reggie and Jughead fighting. Reggie and Juggy do surprise the Bee with how they end up finally fighting.
"Tricked" Script by Bill Vigoda and art by Unknown. Jughead is up to his old tricks only here there punchline does not work. The ending is anti-climatic.
Jughead always looks so cool with his crown on. This story is weird enough that it fits Jughead's character.

Comments: Captain Hero takes on Iron Mantle. The fight is just about to start when Jughead wakes up. This is a unique way of incorporating the Archie Super-Heroes into the story line.
Is Jughead giving up has Principal Strange won? If he has others have not. The gang does have a plan.
The art is hard to describe it has an almost cartoon like quality. It is also vague. The eyes are drawn weird at times.
Well Jughead giving up well that just does not happen. Jughead may not try a lot of things but once his mind is set he never gives up.
The backup story is "The Unsung Hero" from 1949 Written by Chip Zdarsky and art by Samm Schwartz.
Jughead and pigskin repellent now what type of story will this lead to? It does lead to Jughead being the all star player in a game of football without him even playing. With Jughead you never know what will happen.
Jughead is a one of a kind type of teen-ager. Which is a good thing.

Comments: "The Boys of Summer!" Jughead has no one to play with aw. So he tries a practical joke which works really well.
Now Jughead gets Archie to go out in the woods and spend a weekend at a cottage just the two of them. What they find there will leave you stunned in shocking disbelief.
Now Jughead and Archie do disagree about who he should be dating. Jughead does not like stuck up, rich, snooty, people and female ones even less.
Jughead and Archie go for a hike and find themselves lost in the woods. The woods can be a dangerous place and at night even more so.
The way this issue ends with a few words from the writer is so funny. You have to read it for yourself.
Dipsy Doodles are short one page cartoon strips that have Jughead as an artist. They are silent, so no one is speaking. The drawings though speak volumes of comedy. The use of black and white and color and how it is used turns out so well.
Jughead is a character that is so easy to like. Yes he is a bit odd but that is just part of his charm.

Comments: The narrator does such a great job as he explains things and talking to you the reader to. He also notices what is going on in the comic.
Mr. Weatherbee is shown as a principal who knows more than just how to run a school. He knows a lot more and unexpected things to.
The Bee, Archie and Jughead are lost in the woods and there is something not quite right going on.
Archie and Jughead friends forever. They may have disputes but nothing stops their friendship. The last page of this story is a beautifully drawn page showing their friendship.
May 1968's Jughead # 168 "Dream of Genie" written by Frank Doyle, pencils by Bill Vigoda, letters Bill Vigoda and colors Bill Grossman. Jughead reads a book with a genie in it and than and one thing leads to another. Jughead does get to make some wishes. He gets it right eventually and than loses it. Poor Jughead.

Comments: Jughead's art project certainly fits his character. Grubhead the art project does make a fine snack as well.
The words below the main panels are so much fun. The narrator delivers hilarity on a new level using them.
Pop has a new mascot a Burger Lady. The big drawing of her has a letter under her partly between her legs talking about eating a burger. Seems like a sexual innuendo.
Jughead has a crush on her. Jughead believe it or not actually makes a date with some talking burger. Yes really!
Now on their date burger lady takes off the burger suit. Guess who she really is? Its a magical surprise. Poor Jughead really knows how to pick his first date. She is a real witch.
The team of North and Charm will charm you with this magical story. Sabrina is illustrated so cute in it. She is gorgeous.
From 1965 "The Forest Prime Evil" Script Frank Doyle, pencils & inks Samm Schwartz and colors Carlos Antunes.
This is a fun story set back in the day of Robin Hood. Lots of funny word play in the story.

Comments: Jughead Jones and Sabrina are on a date. Yes that Jughead. A date with Jughead is unusual.
Having the narrator talking at the bottom of the pages is such a wonderful touch. It shows imagination.
Now Jughead is kind of weitd but Sabrina well she is a teenage witch. Now what could possible go wrong on a date with each other?
Sabrina is illustrated as the cutest witch you will ever see. Her and Jughead's date does not end well.
Sabrina wants some revenge but against Jughead things never go as planned. Jughead has a certain type of luck about him. Can Sabrina beat Jughead with her magic? These two do create their own form of magic.
The backup story "Sign Out" Script Frank Doyle, pencils & inks Samm Schwartz and colors by Barry Grossman. Jughead and Reggie do have some moments together. Jughead has a way of dealing with Reggie that usually leaves Reggie wishing he had never met Jughead.

Comments: The narrative at the bottom of the pages is fantastic. This is done so wonderfully and so funny. This just makes this comic.
Sabrina, Jughead and Reggie are all hanging out. Now what is happening with them is a wierd experience to say the least. You will not believe your eyes.
Sabrina is illustrated so cutely. When she casts a powerful spell the use of black in the art does let you know that it is indeed a powerful spell.
Jughead proves that he is one great friend to have. Sabrine gets to restart her life over in Riverdale thanks to Jughead.
From 1961 comes the back-up story "To Bee Or Not To Bee" Script by Frank Doyle, pencils by Harry Lucey, ink & letters by Marty Epp and colors by Barry Grossman.
Jughead uses a magic book which creates all sorts of non magical hijinks. Jughead's thoughts are contagious. He has a way of convincing people of the impossible.
Jughead is a character that is unique among characters.

Comments: The gang is playing a video game that has characters that look like themselves. Ok in this race car game you have just got to see Jughead as his car morph's into Jugasaurus Rex. This is awesome to behold.
The narrator adds so much to the story and how it is told.
Reggie wins at the video game and becomes King for a day. Can he become King for a week? The competition is back on. Reggie is the King of video games.
The story does deliver a message about the dangers of posting pictures online. You should not post anything you do not want seen by anyone.
Reggie does come up with a great idea for his time as King. He forms the Reggies. The greatest band ever well at least in his mind.
The art showing off the characters does not give them as much character as you are used to.
This issue offers a look at the new live TV series "Riverdale" on the CW network. It does give us a look at some pictures from the first episode. The Archie characters are being re-imagined again.

Comments: Reggie won a bet and now the gang must do whatever he says.
The narrator adding words at the bottom of each page is a wonderful touch and so funny. You even get told not to read the comic unless you eat food to live. The narrative just keeps getting better and better.
Jughead takes a video that the Reggies made and well things get out of hand in a big way. Jughead is in so much trouble. Reggie and all of the gang are to say the least upset with him.
The art is good in the way it is updated but it is different from the original version.
Jughead is the center of it all though. Yes the world does revolve around him.

Comments: Jughead's video making fun of the gang is seen by millions and not going away. Jughead is in trouble with the gang.
It takes Veronica Lodge to turn the situation around. Well she is a Lodge and her father helps her. Well around for most of the gang.
There are some really funny situations in this issue. Short jokes that jump out at you.
Aw Betty and Jughead share a moment. It is heartwarming.
Well after Jughead's internet mess up than his fix up all is well in a little town called Riverdale.
The characters are all drawn nicely but none are made to stand out. The gang does have some fun and Jughead well he is shown as he should be with a ton of burgers. That is the Jughead we all know and love.

Comments: Jughead is eating just like usual. It is what he is best at.
We see Sabrina using her magical powers and it is magical. The colorful magical aurora as she uses her powers looks fantastic. It is cute seeing Sabrina helping out Jughead. Sabrina's help well things do not work out as planned. Poor Jughead does not know what is coming. His worst nightmare has sprung to life.
The whole issue is a fun filled look at life for Jughead and Sabrina. These two are becoming great friends well if Sabrina does not kill him first.
The characters are living their lives and having fun and we get to join in.
Sabrina brings a magical delight to this series.
