    Overall, I love every bit of this eighth issue just like I did the previous seven. Everything I like about this series is here in this issue and this team is still finding creative ways to keep the story fresh. This issue has gore and drama and those are the two things that I believe that this series has embraced the most. Every aspect of this issue is just excellent from the chilling storytelling to the horrifying yet gorgeous artwork. Read Full Review

    Jughead: The Hunger gives us a moment to catch our breath, but doesn't let up on the shocking nature of this story. These beloved characters have been through Hell and while they're resting now, they are not out of the fire. This was a bit of a history lesson, but never boring or expository. Instead, it pulls you in deeper into the tragic and bloody history of Riverdale. Read Full Review

    All and all this is wasted issue that goes nowhere and is all background story. If you skip this issue and pick up #9, you won't be lost. Read Full Review

    The newest installment of Jughead: The Hunger reads like a giveaway on Free Comic Book Day. It's a summary via newscaster of everything that has occurred in the series so far with only one notable addition to the ongoing story; that seems gratuitous considering there's a recap page providing the same details before the story even begins.
