DeCarlo Rules: I think you can take it as a given that there's no happy ending to Afterlife With Archie, and there's no real conclusion short of "everyone dies". The good guys do not win.; there is no cure for zombies.

DeCarlo Rules:  I couldn't help notice that ACP seems to be focusing on Classic Archie again, now that they're reduced to nothing but the ongoing digests and one-shots.

DeCarlo Rules: @Hanna Barbera Montana -- Not by Roberto Aguirre Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla, I think... and what would be the point of someone else continuing it?

Only filling in on JUGHEAD for 2 issues, or is he the new regular artist on the book?
Either way, it's a step in the right direction which makes me ask why they didn't just hire him in the first place.

irishmoxie

He draws cute art. I'm gonna start picking up Jughead again.

And to answer your question why he wasn't hired in the first place: nepotism.

BettyReggie

I think Erica is working on a book so she probably will be back.

60sBettyandReggie

I like the way he draws Jughead!

BettyReggie

He drew a Regular Show issue , I love that show.

BettyReggie

I can't wait to get the digital copies of the issues he is doing.

Erica Henderson's related to one of the editors at Archie?

BettyReggie

Who's the person she's related to?

That's what I'm asking. irishmoxie says it's nepotism, and that's when you hire (or promote) your relatives. That kind of thing sort of goes without saying when the publishing company is family owned and passed down (through several generations of Goldwaters and Silberkleits), but I'm asking who is Erica Henderson related to that she got hired because of nepotism?

Her dad worked for Archie for a bit but I'm sure he had connections into the comic world that helped her get where she is today. It certainly isn't her art which ranges from ugly to even worse inconsistent as people on here have pointed out.

Her dad wrote only a handful of stories for Archie, and that was back in the early 1990s. He also died a year or two back, before Erica really had any breaks in the industry. I'm sure he gave her some tips on how to submit work to publishers, but C. J. Henderson was never actually a huge name as a writer, either of prose or of comics -- he was kind of working the low end of both fields, although he managed to get a fair number of books published over a couple of decades or so, but it's not like we're talking about Stephen King or (for Archie Comics) George Gladir or something. His last comic work was for Moonstone Books, about as low on the comic publishing scale as you can get while still being distributed by Diamond.

You and I may not like her work (and I certainly don't find her style appropriate for JUGHEAD), but you have to acknowledge that someone does. She was nominated twice for the 2016 Eisner awards -- once for best new series (for The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) and once for best penciller/inker.  Ergo, the work she's getting is on her own merit.
