In this preview sent out by Archie Comics, Riverdale’s resident slacker, Jughead Jones, is revealed to be asexual. It’s just something mentioned in a discussion with another student when discussing suspensions and the affect on the number of homosexual students in the school. In the middle panel the line “You just don’t get it because you’re asexual…” to which he responds “… I’m not hobbled by the hormonal impulses!”
Here is the rest of the preview for the book shopping tomorrow.
Riverdale High has been taken over by a nefarious outside force! Or has it? It’s up to Jughead and Dilton to get proof, but can the mysterious Captain Slackbeard show the way? It’s adventure on the high seas and in the classroom for the gang! Yar!
