So, apparently they have now decided that the reason Jughead Jones has only ever eaten burgers in Archie comics for decades is because he doesn't like sex or even have a sex.
Huh

"Crown-wearing Archie Comics character Jughead Jones has traditionally been more into burgers than romance, and a new comic is about to casually reveal that he is, in fact, asexual."

Well, considering they already created a homosexual character I am not surprised. I used to read Archie comics and it's no big reveal on their part. That said, I always read Jughead as more of a food addict.

What I find interesting is that before Archie Comics created the Kevin Keller character, I thought Jughead was THE first gay character of that comic universe, especially with the crown on his head as if hinting the "queen stereotype" and so forth.

The story about Jughead eating burgers because he's asexual is total BS. I would figure that it was because Jughead was a cannabis smoker! Big Grin

Major throwback to "Archie and his weird mysteries". Big Grin

That was awesome.

Did you not see or readied the final issue of Archie: The Married Life?

Regardless if the reader were in favor of Archie marrying Betty OR Veronica, both storylines ended with Archie being killed by saving Kevin from an assassination attempt. That incident ended all of the series within the original Archie Comic Universe.

I never read him as a flame. It just seemed pretty normal for me in this abnormal age-- maybe he was a porn addict too.That slows the libido down.
