Yes, you have been hearing a lot more about Riverdale than Afterlife With Archie, lately. That doesn’t mean that Archie Horror is dead, though. (Pun very much intended.) Today sees a new entry in Archie’s horror line, Jughead: The Hunger. By a (possibly magical) coincidence, we happen to have a preview of that so you can have a look before you head out to the shop.

Join writer Frank Tieri (Wolverine) and artist Michael Walsh (Secret Avengers) for this horrifying one-shot for TEEN+ readers.
