Over the last year and a half Archie has become one of my favorite comic companies. Starting off with their two horror series,Afterlife with Archie and the Sabrina revamp. Then The Black Hood and SHIELD from the Dark Circle imprint have been damn good. But the revamping of Archie and now Jughead are the real standouts.
After being expelled from school in the previous issue,no worries Jughead was set up by the new principal,our titular hero is trying to get back into Riverdale High.
Like the two previous issues we get Jughead daydreaming. This time he is a super spy like Jame Bond. Which is also a nice nod to the old Archie spy stories.
I have no idea how well these revamped Jughead and Archie comics are selling. But at least for me they are great. They managed to not only bring both ancient characters into the modern age.But at the same time not losing what made they so compelling.
Jughead #03 gets a Buy.
