    Horror Talk - James Ferguson Dec 19, 2017

    The mythos of Jughead: The Hunger grows considerably in this issue, branching out into further reaches of the Archie Universe. Writer Frank Tieri creates an old-school, moody horror feel to the book, filling every page with dread for what might come next. These rival forces are building on both sides, which will ultimately lead into some sort of werewolf showdown and I cannot wait to see it. This is a top tier werewolf story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nathan Koffler Dec 13, 2017

    This issue is a wonderful addition to what the one shot and the first issue established. It continued the story in an exciting way and added more drama and action to the story. Archie horror has done it once again and every comic fan should be reading this series! Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Dec 14, 2017

    Jughead: the Hunger continues to be another hit for Archie's more horror-oriented line of comics. While I do wish the art was maybe a little “creepier” in the vein of After Life with Archie,The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina orthe original Jughead: the Hunger one-shot, it does the job for the most part. The story is getting a little murky with several things going on, but I have faith that Tieri is going to make it all become a little clearer very soon. Jughead: the Hunger #2does have some high points that outweigh the low, and is worth a read. Read Full Review

    Jughead The Hunger #2 does maintain its frightening tone, but begins to spread its plot a little thin. Read Full Review

    An unfortunately empty second outing to a promising new horror title. Hopefully the series finds its footing soon. Read Full Review
