‘Jughead’ #8 Pits Archie, Jughead, And Mr. Weatherbee Against A Bear, In The Grand Archie Tradition [Preview]

Jughead #8, Archie Comics

As much as they might've been modernized over the past few years, I think it's still safe to say that Archie comics are rooted in a series of classic elements. The eternal war between Betty and Veronica for Archie's affections, for instance, or Archie's well-meaning clumsiness, or even Jughead constantly mooching off Archie to get money for burgers. Those are all long-standing traditions in the Archie Universe, but none are so well-regarded as the gang having to fight a bear.

What's that? Y'all don't think that's a traditional Archie story? Well, I can assure you that it happened in 1974's Life With Archie #143, and that's enough of a tradition for me --- especially since Chip Zdarsky and Derek Charm are bringing it back for the next issue of Jughead. Check out a preview!

Zdarsky And Charm Bring You The Horror Of The Mantle Family Reunion In ‘Jughead’ #7

Jughead #7, Archie Comics

If you're familiar at all with Derek Charm's work on titles like the creator-owned Trip Fantastic, then you've probably already realized that he's one of the few artists that could be called absolutely perfect for the job of drawing Archie's burger-obessed pal Jughead. His cartoony style and sharp angles fit young Forsythe Pendleton Jones III to a tee, and ever since it was announced that he would be taking over art for the ongoing title, I've been waiting to see what he'd do. But I was not prepared for the horror that would be unleashed.

I mean, look, the preview that we have today is unlettered, so I can't be sure, but I'm pretty sure Charm's first issue of Jughead (along with writer Chip Zdarsky) is focusing on Archie and Jughead being caught up in the Mantle Family Reunion. That's right, y'all: Multiple Reggies. Tremble in fear and check out the preview below... if you dare!

That trend is set to continue this September as The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl's Ryan North and Trip Fantastic's Derek Charm take over creative duties for Riverdale's hungriest citizen with Jughead #9.

Poll: Who Is The Best Character In Riverdale?

Who is Riverdale's best character?

Of all the major comic book companies, there's only one named after a single character: Archie Comics. The question is, though, does Archie Andrews himself really deserve that honor? I mean, yes, he's the main character in most of those stories and one point on the greatest love triangle in comics, but can you really look at those books and tell me that company shouldn't be called Jughead Entertainment?

Perhaps you can, but today, we're going to settle this once and for all as we invite you to cast your vote in our latest poll: Just who is the best character Riverdale has to offer?
