If you’re enjoying CW’s new Riverdale series as much as we are, then you probably have a new appreciation for Archie’s pal Jughead Jones. The classic Jughead has always had an insatiable appetite, practically living at the Riverdale diner. Actually we wouldn’t be surprised to see him move into the back of the joint on the television series since he lost his home at the drive-in theater, which recently closed. This month Archie Comics is taking Jughead to a dark place and asks: What if Jughead’s hunger came from a sinister place?
When a murderous menace is on the prowl, taking the lives of some of the most well-known and esteemed inhabitants of Riverdale, Jughead and his family’s dark legacy comes to light.
It’s Jughead: The Hunger. It’s a story that will be a prime target for fans of the successful and popular series Afterlife With Archie and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
