Jughead Jones is a werewolf, now even moreso: “Jughead: The Hunger” becomes a series

A. Quinton — Jul. 14th 2017

It’s the supernatural Archie spin-off so nice they did it twice! After the success of Jughead: The HungerMarch’s one-shot comic in which Jughead Jones becomes a werewolf and Bettie Cooper a werewolf hunter – Archie Comics is continuing the concept with an ongoing monthly series. Writer Frank Tieri will return, with Pat and Tim Kennedy picking up art duties.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

“We purposely left the door open with the one shot, we told you if you made Jughead: The Hunger a hit we’d make more — and since you more than held up your end of the bargain — here we are,” writer Frank Tieri said in a statement. “Fans can expect more of everything they loved about the one shot now as we expand our universe — more werewolf Juggie, more bad ass Betty, more conflicted Archie and more twists and turns than you can shake a severed arm at.”

The series will continue on from the one-shot, under the same title – Jughead: The Hunger – and the first issue will be available in comic stores and digitally on October 25th.

    Not that I don’t love me the werebeasts, but color me surprised the Archie crew saw fit to spin a series outta this premise. I can only assume ol’ Jug managed to nip or scratch enough folks for Betty’s new gig not to end with him. Guess it’s off to dig up the initial one-shot.
