It's Jughead vs. Archie and Mr. Weatherbee vs ...a Bear?! Even the quiet of the wilderness can't escape the madness that's raging through all of Riverdale!

    I'm sad to see Chip Zdarsky go, but I am glad that he's leaving on a high note. This was funny, honest, and great fun to read. Ryan North (another excellent writer) takes over in the next issue, and the story involves Jughead meeting Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. It will be interesting to see how that plays out, because up to this point Jughead has been fairly grounded with the overt fantastical elements appearing in his dreams. If North keeps Sabrina a full-fledged witch, then that will change the established internal logic of the story so far, and it will either work or fall flat on its face. Of course, I'm hoping for it to work. Read Full Review

    Derek Charm handling both the illustration and color makes the simplicity in his style pop with focus. His work has a touch of Toei teen team, but with angles instead of curves, modern instead of retro. Just right for Archie Comics. Charm will continue on Jughead past this issue, which sadly wraps up Chip's run. The writer leaves Jughead a better book than anyone ever thought it could be. His vision achieved. A send-off fit for a Forsythe. Mr. Zdarsky, we shall miss ye. Read Full Review

    While it doesn't quite illicit the same belly laughs as the earlier issues, Jughead #8 is still a fine enough ending note for Chip Zdarsky's time with Jughead and company. Read Full Review

    Issue #8 reads very much as a book spinning its wheels, serving as neither an ending to Zdarsky's run nor a precursor for things to come. Read Full Review
