Jughead’s Time Police Is Back…To The Future

by James Ferguson

I love comics because it’s the only place you’ll find some of the craziest and most awesome ideas that can be described by the title alone. That’s the case with Jughead’s Time Police. I mean, what’s not to love about that name? This was originally a mini-series back in the ’90s where Riverdale’s champion layabout was tasked with saving all of human history. This June, Archie Comics is reviving the concept with an all-new series from writer Sina Grace, artist Derek Charm, colorist Matt Herms, and letterer Jack Morelli.

This time around, Jughead must travel through time to right a food-related wrong. This quickly leads to a battle for the timestream itself. I love everything about this and I can’t wait to read this book.
Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura says:

Jughead’s Time Police is a beloved concept that was screaming to be modernized, so once we read Sina’s pitch, we knew we were in business. He honors what came before but gives the idea a much-needed jolt. I can’t think of a better artist to bring it to life than Derek, who had a stellar run on the main Jughead title — which kind of feels like a warmup for this!

Jughead’s Time Police #1 is set for release on June 12th, 2019.
