When Juggie's ruined everyone's lives (but by accident, obviously) and also drawn the entire Internet's attention to Riverdale, can he fix it? And how can a man who only wants to eat burgers in peace have caused such problems? All these questions and more are answered in this issue!

    Jughead 14 was another stellar issue from Ryan North and Derek Charm. It was full of humor and wit and more than a little heart. While I'm sad that the series is going on hiatus, I am glad that we've had seven solid issues from this team. Hopefully, they'll work together again, either on another Jughead project or something else. Read Full Review

    The humor is turned up in this issue. The click bait headline parodies are hilarious, and even Archie being buddy buddy and then realizing he's also supposed to be mad is, well, funny! That's the real charm to Jughead. You don't have to take him seriously. And while Jughead does have a very real problem in this issue, it's handled in a way only feasible in the world of Archie.

    It's too bad that this issue is likely to be North's last writing credit on the book, as Mark Waid is set to take an expanded role at Archie Comics later this year and will start writing Jughead himself. That being said, I enjoy what he's been doing with Archie's book, I just hope he continues to keep the gang together in this book. It's been a small, steady complaint of mine that the kids seem to run in such different circles in the main Archie storyline; it doesn't really feel like "the gang's all here". That's been rectified a great deal in Jughead, and I really hope it stays that way. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Apr 7, 2017

    Speaking of charm, as in Derek Charm, his lively art has kept the fun Archie Comics has been known for. With expressive expressions and body language, Charm injects humor at times without a single piece of dialogue. North and Charm make a nice combination, a symbiotic collaboration that benefits the sometimes wild shenanigans of Jughead and the Riverdale kids. They provide a smart and funny approach that keeps Jughead fresh and relatable. Unfortunately, North ends his run on 'Jughead' after a great approach of keeping the gang involved despite the name on the front of the book. Read Full Review

    A decent sendoff to Ryan North, but it's the least of all his Jughead stories. It's not as funny, and (this is becoming a recurring problem, or maybe something I never noticed before) the plot turns on Betty's sadness, the only thing that motivates Jughead to change what he's done. Never mind that he screws over his other friends in the process; Betty comes first. She's gone from being one of my favorite Archie characters to one I'm starting to just tolerate because of how every comic seems to put her on a pedestal. Back when this was briefly done to Kevin Keller, everyone complained that he was a bland token and Gary Stu; why does Betty get a pass?
