bce38

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

JughHungerFeatured

Writer Frank Tieri and artist Michael Walsh want to show you Archie's pal Jughead as you've never seen him before. He's always been hungry, but in Jughead: The Hunger, he completes his evolution into a voracious werewolf who feeds on human flesh. Considering the covers to this one-shot, it's not really a spoiler to let you in on that. What's more interesting is the identity of the werewolf hunter who shows up to stop him.

Reggie’s In Charge But Dilton Is The Real Star In ‘Jughead’ #13 [Preview]

Jughead #13, Archie Comics

Folks, there is a lot going on in the first few pages of this week's issue of Jughead. Not only have Ryan North and Derek Charm introduced us to an increasingly bizarre roster of musical acts in Riverdale --- including the Josie and the Pussycats side project Melody and the Literal Cats Who Play Cat-Sized Instruments --- but their story about Reggie becoming King for a Month has done wonders for one Dilton Doiley.

Yes, the book might be about Jughead being in conflict with Reggie, but the real action here comes from Dilton, who shatters the fourth wall to bring us one of the best recap pages I have ever seen. Check it out!
