Author: Chip Zdarsky, Erica Henderson
Genre: Graphic Novel
Publisher: Archie Comics

In the grand tradition of comic book reboots like ARCHIE VOL. 1, Archie Comics proudly presents… JUGHEAD VOL. 1–from the comics dream team of Chip Zdarsky (HOWARD THE DUCK) and Erica Henderson (THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL)!
Riverdale High provides a quality education and quality hot lunches, but when one of those is tampered with, JUGHEAD JONES swears vengeance! Well, I mean, he doesn’t “swear.” This is still Archie Comics after all.
Collects JUGHEAD issues #1-6, plus bonus features.
I’ve never read a book that was just about Jughead before. He was never my favourite character from Riverdale, but I enjoyed this graphic novel.
My favourite part in this graphic novel was the parodies. Each comic had a parody of a movie or TV series, which happened in Jughead’s dreams. My favourite one was the parody of Game of Thrones, where Moose was Hodor and Archie was Jon Snow. It was so clever, and it made me laugh out loud!
I didn’t like the images in this book. The faces were angular and pointy. Many of the characters didn’t look like themselves, so it was kind of confusing.
I still liked the stories in this series, so I’ll read the next one soon!
What to read next:
