  • DeCarlo Rules: Presumably with an ongoing B&V series, they'd want to keep it nominally in continuity with the ongoing ARCHIE title.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, I hadn't noticed that the story is "Senior Year", so that explains it. It's a one-off story arc, just like "Freshman Year". They're not going to keep them as seniors permanently, or have them graduate and go on to college in an ongoing series.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Probably just a space-filler while they look for a better writer than Jaime Rotante. I hope.

Jughead: The Hunger
« on: January 21, 2018, 11:32:19 am »
I just read issue 2 of Jughead: The Hunger (3 if you count the "one shot"). 


This is a really good book and since Roberto isn't working on it, it's actually being published. 


The Kennedys artwork is really good and for some reason Joe Eisma did the second half of this issue and his art is fine for this story too.


I actually thought the one shot wasn't that great but took a chance on the regular series and it's much improved over the one shot.


Good story and just enough humor. 


I have no idea how it's selling but it's been a pleasant surprise.

Well, I couldn't find a copy of the one-shot, but unless they actually SHOW Jughead transforming into a werewolf, I'm gonna say he's not (despite whatever the covers show you); it didn't happen ONCE in issues #1 or 2.

Comixology has it on digital, if you prefer it....

Have to admit I only read it because I was able to easily borrow issues #1 & 2. I read them more out of curiosity than any real interest. It sure seems like they've telegraphed the fact that Jughead is NOT, in actuality, the werewolf in this series. I've never particularly cared for Frank Tieri's writing on any of the Marvel titles he's worked on over the past couple of decades, but VeganJughead got me interested enough to take a gander at how the Kennedy brothers handled a horror title. The results are serviceable enough, but by no means outstanding by comparison to any other artists working in the adventure/horror comics style. Especially when I think about how polished their cartooning has become over the last few years working in the traditional Archie house style.
