Archie Is Finally Releasing That ‘Jughead’s Time Police’ Digital Collection You Wanted (And By You, I Mean Me) [Preview]
I think I'm pretty solidly on record as being someone who loves the weirder side of Archie Comics, and even now, when we've got an ongoing series about Riverdale facing the zombie apocalypse, I don't think they've ever done anything weirder than Jughead's Time Police. The short-lived series originally ran in 1990, and as the name implies, it's all about Jughead traveling through time with a distant descendant of Archie's named January McAndrews in order to prevent time crimes --- which actually ends up involving them fighting Morgan Le Fay. You know, from King Arthur times? That's who Jughead's arch-enemy is. Oh, and it was drawn by Gene Colan.
It is, of course, great, but the issues can be a little bit difficult to track down --- until now! This week installment of Archie's digital offerings is a collection of all six issues of Jughead's Time Police. It goes up Friday on Comixology, but you can check out a preview below right now!
