The Many Faces of Jughead Jones

Archie's pal Jughead is featured in a new self-titled series, Jughead - written by Canadian Chip Zdarsky (of "Sex Criminals") and drawn by American Erica Henderson (of "Squirrel Girl"). The new Jughead promises to be deeper, funnier and sexier than previous incarnations.

Here's a sneak peak of the new series, which hits shelves Oct. 7.

And here's a retrospective on other reinventions of Riverdale High's laid-back alumnus.

The Original

Forsythe P. Jones III, better known as "Jughead," debuted in a 1941 issue of "Pep Comics," wearing his signature "whoopee cap" and mysterious "S" sweatshirt.

Dragon Slayer

The three-part miniseries "Jughead's Fantasy" (1960) allowed the imagination of Archie's pal to run wild as he envisioned himself becoming a knight, a detective and a demigod.

Pop Star

"The Archie Show," which was the first cartoon adaptation of the Riverdale gang, premiered in 1968 and spawned the hit singles Sugar, Sugar and Bang-Shang-a-Lang.

Jughead - The Everyman

In "Jughead's Diner" (1990), Jones is transported to Dinersville, a town in another dimension, where he fights to save the last independent diner from being consumed by an evil corporation.

Time Cop

In Jughead's Time Police (1991), Jones dons a time-travelling hat that allows him to join a team of detectives that solve time paradoxes. In the final issue, his ultimate nemesis is revealed to be Morgan le Fay.

Dr. Jones

The 1990 made-for-TV movie To Riverdale and Back Again features Sam Whipple (of background character fame) playing a grown-up Jughead, who works as a psychiatrist but acts more neurotic than his patients. Oh, and he raps "Sugar, Sugar" to help his son overcome his shyness around girls.

Riverdale's Pet Sematary

In Afterlife with Archie (Volume I: 2013), Jughead asks his friend Sabrina to use her magic to save Hotdog (his canine pal), who was hit by a car. When she turns Hotdog into an undead canine, Jughead gets bitten and becomes "patient zero" in Riverdale's zombie apocalypse.


If passed, a new bipartisan bill filed in the House of Representative this week would automatically seal some federal marijuana convictions. On Tuesday, Representatives Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE) and Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) introduced a new piece of legislation titled the Clean Slate Act. Under the new bill, individuals with federal cannabis convictions will automatically have their records sealed one year after they have completed their sentence.
