Penned by series writer Chip Zdarsky, “Jughead” #7 will find the titular character and his best friend Archie on summer break. The two escape to a cottage in order to get away from the madness of Riverdale, but it follows them on their vacation.



“I found out [about drawing ‘Jughead’] a few months ago, right as ‘Star Trek: Starfleet Academy’ for IDW was wrapping up,” Charm shared. “I was asked to do a cover first, and then another, and then interiors, so it just kept growing — which is amazing. I was and am really excited to spend some time with these characters and figure out ‘New Riverdale.'”

“We’re still a few months out so I haven’t seen a script yet,” he added. “It’s Chip Zdarsky though, so I know it’ll be hilarious and unexpected. I’ve really loved everything he and Erica [Henderson] have done on this series so far.”

“Jughead” #7 goes on sale in June.
