It’s no secret that Jughead is one of the greatest comic book characters of all time. That’s why, when we decided to give him his own series in the style of the New Riverdale relaunch, we knew we had to get someone who appreciated him for he is. The dream-team of Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson put together six amazing issues of the burger-eating fiend and we’ve got them all out next week in a snazzy collection aptly titled JUGHEAD VOLUME ONE.
We wanted to share with you our Top 5 Moments from JUGHEAD VOLUME ONE, whether it’s Jughead doing something hilarious, an awesome reference to a classic story, or just a great piece of artwork, we’ve listed them below.

Jughead gets a visit from Archie’s descendant from the 29th Century, who’s a time traveling police officer from a world overrun by robots? Yes, please, we’ll take two copies.
