In the world of JUGHEAD THE HUNGER, there are no vampires, having been wiped out in their great war with the werewolves. In the VAMPIRONICA universe, the opposite is the case, as it was the vampires who were the victors. So what happens when these two eternal enemies are brought together again? Whatever it is, it can't be good for poor ol' Jug and Vampironica, you can count on that much...

    Even without Riverdale's resident werewolf, we're given a campy and creepy chapter in what could potentially be a standout series in the world of Archie Horror Comics. Read Full Review

    The story is off to a solid start, building up the plot well and bringing us into the world. The artwork alone sets an appropriate tone for the gore to come, juxtaposed nicely with the beloved cast of "Archie" comics. Read Full Review

    While this isn't the "throwdown" promised by the front cover, this is a really fun first issue that has me interested to see how the two universes will collide. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 2, 2019

    Jughead the Hunger vs. Vampironica is easily one of my most anticipated titles of the year, however it's off to a slow start. I will cut it some slack, as it has to explain how these two worlds collide. It's not like the Crisis of Infinite Earths where you can just have the Flash run really fast for a few seconds. There's more nuance to it. I'm far from giving up on the series, as I can't wait to see how these two characters interact (and undoubtedly fight). You can never go wrong with werewolves vs. vampires.
