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 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.
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.
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.
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.
