It looks like JUGHEAD AND FRIENDS #28 is now on sale. The twelve-page story "Riverdale Jones and the Temple of Food" was a lot of fun to ink. Not only was this story an homage to Indiana Jones, but I was once again teamed-up with Fernando Ruiz… which is always great.
Here’s how Archie Comic Publications describes JUGHEAD AND FRIENDS #28:
"Riverdale Jones and the Temple of Food": While rummaging through Jughead's attic searching for sleeping bags, Archie finds something else instead: the hat, jacket and journal of Jughead's archeologist-adventurer ancestor Riverdale Jones! Food was his specialty, so when the boys also find a map to the legendary "Temple of Food," the quest is on to find this fabled land of food and fortune! Plus: Other new and classic tales! Bonus: Puzzles, games and pin-ups!
