The world of Archie has been expanding with CW’s Riverdale and the recently rebooted comic book universe. The publishing universe is growing this March with four brand new one-shots focusing on a wide-range of the Archie supporting cast and worlds. EW broke the news this morning.


The series includes a return to the Afterlife with Archie world in Jughead: The Hunger One-Shot written by Frank Tieri (Red Sonja) with art from Michael Walsh (Secret Avengers) on-sale March 29. The series seems to have a silly premise capitalizing on (what else but) Jughead’s hunger that comes from a spooky, sinister place!

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