JUGHEAD #1 Cover by Erica Henderson
New York, NY (October 8, 2015) Archie Comics, the acclaimed and bestselling comic book publisher that is home to some of the best-known pop culture creations in the world, including Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Josie & The Pussycats, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the hit AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE series, today unveiled plans for an expansive presence at New York Comic Con 2015 —hot on the heels of the launch of the all-new JUGHEAD #1 from the unbelievable creative team of acclaimed writer Chip Zdarsky (Sex Criminals, Howard the Duck) and rising star artist Erica Henderson (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl).
JUGHEAD #1, hitting comic shops and digital retailers on Wednesday, October 7th— arrives after the record-setting launch of ARCHIE #1 earlier this year from the superstar tandem of writer Mark Waid and artist Fiona Staples. ARCHIE opened the doors to a new, vibrant Riverdale – a town and world that is expanded and stretched to its limits in the hilarious, off-the-wall and must-have Jughead adventures found in the new series.

JUGHEAD embraces and amplifies offbeat and bizarre Jughead stories like JUGHEAD’S TIME POLICE while grounding the series in a modern reality via Zdarsky’s of-the-moment humor and Henderson’s expressive artwork, reintroducing and revitalizing Riverdale’s resident glutton.

The relaunch sets the stage for an amazing weekend of events, panels, exclusives and announcements at New York Comic Con 2015 —including an exclusive-to-the-show variant cover edition of JUGHEAD #1 by Francesco Francavilla!

Limited to 1000 copies, this convention exclusive cover will be available for $10 at the Archie Comics Booth #1836 while supplies last!
