    As a single issue Jughead #6 works, but as the culmination of Zdarsky, Henderson, and colorist Andre Szymanowicz's first (and only) arc in New Riverdale, its a satisfyingly funny and heartfelt conclusion to Jug's first big adventure. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Alexander Handziuk May 18, 2016

    Overall, Issue #6 serves as a fitting conclusion to the first arc of the newly revamped Jughead series and it demonstrates that this book and its pointy nosed protagonist are in great (albeit funky) hands. Read Full Review

    As always, Zdarsky infuses his trademark wit and humor into the dialogue. (I especially love the "editor's notes," like how Dilton being an amazing dancer is now canon times infinity, and that this month's fracas was the craziest thing to ever happen to Riverdale" until next time, at least.) Through Zdarsky, Jughead can be so very deadpan in his sarcasm, magnified by Erica Henderson' angular features and expressive faces. Whatever the writer throws Henderson's way " be it Dilton's dancing, to the fight between Jughead and Moose, to the 6 panels that gave us Principal Stanger's slow clap " she handles it all beautifully. Another solid book from the Jughead crew. I look forward to the next arc, which hints at summer vacation. Perfect. Just in time for us to include it in all our beach reads. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Josh Begley May 30, 2016

    Jughead #6 brings the evil principal story arc to a satisfying conclusion. Once again, the crowned one manages to save the day, paradoxically putting in the maximum amount of effort to save him from having to do actual work. While I'm still not fully on board with the dream sequences, I've accepted that they're here to stay. Thankfully, I like the overall book enough not to care too much. Read Full Review
