Bring On More Archie
Fans of The CW’s Riverdale are probably getting comfortable with Cole Sprouse’s version of Archie’s best friend Jughead as a cool, calm, and collected hipster, but in the Archie Comics, he’s usually known for his hanger (hungry anger). In the old school Archie, Jughead craves burgers, but in Archie Comics’ new horror one-shot Jughead: The Hunger, he’s moved on to human flesh. Yup. You heard it right. Jughead is a werewolf now. Jughead: The Hunger hits stores March 29. Check out an exclusive preview here!

Lily Collins went on the Ellen show to chat about her new book, Unfiltered, out March 7th! In this groundbreaking debut essay collection, featuring never-before-seen photos, Lily Collins is opening a poignant, honest conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more.
