Ryan North’s Passion For Dinosaurs Bleeds Into Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (SPOILERS)

A previous version of this article mistakenly assumed that Dinosaur Comics had ended, considering it began nearly 15 years ago. Dang, Ryan. You’re a dedicated guy.

Jughead Learns A Valuable Lesson About Viral Videos: Jughead #14 Review

Jughead is seriously the best comic book character ever created. His sardonic, dry humor is effortless.

Here Come The Reggies!: Jughead #13

Since it was announced that Mark Waid would be taking over the Jughead title in the future, I’ve felt a little bad for everyone’s favorite burger eating lazy man. Waid is an exceptional writer, but the current creative team (Ryan North, Derek Charm) is pretty darn good. We open with Dilton who is attempting his […]

Teens Get Bored And Make Weird Bets: Jughead #12

Growing up, people often looked at me with three heads when I said Jughead was my favorite Archie character.

In the last […]

Aftermath Of An Accidental Date – Review Of Jughead #11

Jughead #11 hit shops today and it featured Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the aftermath of the date the two went on. It was written by Ryan North and had art by Derek Charm and Jack Morelli. I should probably add here that I haven’t really read that much from the world of Archie Comics. […]

From Strip To Script – Ryan North’s Dinosaur Comics!

By Josh Hechinger Welcome to From Strip to Script, where I take a page of finished comic art and try to derive a script from it, to see what I can learn from the exercise. Hi, guess who’s still hung up on examining comic strips? Yeah, buddy, it’s me. I forget if I went into […]
