Media Release — Archie Comics—secret base to the super spies of P.O.P., including everyone’s favorite teen-spy Archie as The Man from R.I.V.E.R.D.A.L.E.—is bringing the action and adventure into a new genre at Archie Comics, that of the Semi-Private Eye! Appearing this summer as a four-part series in the pages of JUGHEAD #202-205, Jughead’s new job as a teen detective promises mysteries, thrills, laughter and tons of snacks!
Award-winning ARCHIE & FRIENDS writer Alex Simmons gives Jughead Jones the hardboiled life of a semi-private detective in the first of a 4-part series appearing in JUGHEAD #202 with “Well, Well My Lovely,” where thrills and fine food are around every shadowy corner!
“It’s been a thrill to see all the adventures of Jughead as J. Jones: Semi-Private Eye in action,” stated Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics Co-CEO.
With his trench coat, clipped dialogue and the very particular way he prefers his malteds (“Spun, not stirred!”), Jughead becomes quite the spy guy! However, just when his friends are ready to laugh him out of the Chok’lit Shoppe, Jughead’s first client, the beautiful Elektra, reveals that her father’s highly-coveted invention has gone missing! It will take every ounce of burger to fuel every ounce of brain-power Jughead has to solve this super-sized mystery!
Part one of four begins with “Well, Well My Lovely” in JUGHEAD #202, arriving in comic shops July 28th and everywhere else comics are sold August.
