The South Side Serpents rise again in new one-shot comic!

Jughead Jones and the South Side Serpents biker gang are roaring into their own solo comic book this January from Archie Comics. The special one-shot issue — inspired by the hit CW series Riverdale — comes from writer David Barnett with art by Richard Ortiz, Matt Herms, and Jack Morelli and follows Jughead on a dangerous solo mission to revive the Serpents for his father.

FP Jones is worried for the future of the South Side Serpents. The biker gang is getting old and finding it hard to attract fresh blood. But FP has a plan, and it revolves around his son, Jughead. Hunted by the most fearsome biker gangs in the state, an unwilling Jughead has to step up into the role of leader to guide the Serpents on a perilous journey. There will be adventure, there will be thrills, there will be chases, and there will be death in this special one-shot event featuring fan-favorite characters from the CW Riverdale series.

Riverdale Presents: South Side Serpents this January from writer David Barnett and art by Richard Ortiz, Matt Herms, and Jack Morelli and covers by Ortiz and Tyler Boss.

You have unlimited funds, a jet-set lifestyle, and extraordinary abilities. So what happens when you develop a sneaking suspicion you’re working for the bad guys? Meet Eve Stranger, amnesiac for hire. Eve wakes up in a hotel room without knowing who she is or how she got there. Beside her is a teddy bear, a credit card, a briefcase of cash, a used syringe, and a letter in her own handwriting that explains her next mission. She’s living week by week, undertaking different, seemingly impossible tasks on behalf of a mystery benefactor. Her bloodstream is flooded with nanobombs, and the contents of the syringe deactivates them for one week and also wipes her memory. Because every Friday morning she wakes up with a clean slate and a new job, from black ops action/adventure hero to personal shopper, scuba treasure hunter to space station saboteur.

All Tim wanted to do was impress a pretty girl by getting the two of them into the Glastonbury Festival. But one poorly thought-out spell later, they’ve instead found themselves at a different festival-the ancient carnival of the realms, where all the worlds of magic go to let their hair (or tentacles, or tendrils of fire) down and have a good time! It’s just a shame that for some species, “a good time” might turn out to mean “eating humans”…Don’t miss the start of this two-part tale written by guest writer David Barnett (Punks Not Dead).

INTRODUCTION BY BEST-SELLING AUTHOR IAN RANKIN!

Teenage Fergie and his invisible sidekick, the ghost of a punk rocker named Sid, head to London to find Fergie’s absent father, while the Department of Extra-Usual Affairs, led by the irascible Dorothy Culpepper, and Fergie’s mum Julie face demons from hell—both personal and literal.

Fergie and Sid have arrived in London… and a whole pile of trouble. All Fergie has to go on in the search for his father is an old photograph and some snippets of information that suggest “Billy” was involved in the music business in the Eighties and Nineties. Tracking down old contacts, Fergie and Sid find themselves getting mired in a shadowy undercurrent of the occult and whispers of entities not from our world. Meanwhile, back in Preston, Julie forms an unlikely alliance with Natalie as they try to find the missing Fergie.
