Archie Comics has announced a big shake-up to its recently launched Jughead title, with writer Ryan North and artist Derek Charm taking over for Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson, while Sabrina the Teenage Witch is added to the revamped Riverdale book.
"Sabrina's interesting because she's literally magic. She is an actual witch in a world where witchcraft isn't known to be a real thing, and she's got this edge to her that you don't often see in Riverdale," said North.
The three will debut in Jughead #9, which is scheduled to be released September 7.
(It’s kind of like a) BRAND NEW #1… except it’s issue #9! SABRINA makes her debut in the NEW RIVERDALE and things are about to get INSANE! New story! New arc! New creative team! Pop Tate's has a new mascot: it's a lady in a burger costume with a giant burger for a head! And she never takes off that giant burger head! And she and Jughead really hit it off, probably for that very reason! But is it possible Burger Lady is MORE than she appears? Find out what happens when Jughead meets a burger he REALLY likes—and a POWERFUL and unexpected new force in Riverdale is revealed!! P.S.: that powerful and unexpected new force is SABRINA THE TEENAGE WITCH! SHE'S the Burger Lady!
