    Jughead #9 hits a home run in this debut issue from new team Ryan North and Derek Charm. Together they crafted a funny, engaging, and thoroughly enjoyable issue that actually deals with a potentially problematic and complicated subject. This one is more definitely worth your while and provides a good jumping on point for those who haven't hopped on the Jughead bandwagon. Also, Charm's cover is amazing. I mentioned in my last review how much I would love to own a print. If one's available, I would gladly buy it. Read Full Review

    While the departure of the original creative team usually portends a dip in quality, Jughead #9 shows no sign of slumping as it heads into its new arc. Ryan North and Derek Charm adhere to the title's original tone and sense of humor while not playing it safe with their storytelling and developing Jughead past his love of food and aloof nature. Magic is in the air and if Jughead #9 is any indication, North and Charm will have many more spells to cast on readers before their time is up. Read Full Review

    You might think it would be difficult for a Jughead comic to both explore the character's recently confirmed asexuality and still offer a fun, breezy, all-ages adventure. But Ryan North and Derek Charm make that look easy in this latest issue. Read Full Review

    Jughead #9 is an issue that changes up the characterization of a character we've gotten so used to"just a bit, anyway. This is an awesome look at Jughead acting like an actual, normal teenager (like the rest of his friends). I never would have thought to put Sabrina with Jug"North has some really fresh ideas that he is bringing to the series. With a storyline like this, there is bound to be some fun! Keep reading to see what happens! Read Full Review

    Exceedingly funny and as well written as any teen comedy, if not better. Ol Jughead is in good hands. Read Full Review
