"Something Ventured, Something Gained" will take the Riverdale teens on their wildest ride ever. Jughead trades his body's metabolism to a witch in exchange for an irresistible mega cheeseburger. Everything goes bonkers from there.
The book will also be available with Archie Comics' first-ever variant cover by noted comic artist and Jughead penciler, Rex Lindsey. For every three regular issues purchased, the variant will be included free. Jughead #200 will have a $2.50 price tag and will be available March 17, 2010.
“The Archie Comics characters are comedy icons,” said Root. “Each character’s personality has been so well-defined over the course of nearly 70 years that it was a lot of fun to shake them up and present them with new challenges. Mostly, though, I just wanted to write a funny issue. I hope Archie fans like it!”
