Jughead's Nickname Gets an Origin in ARCHIE #2

ARCHIE #2, the first of Archie Comics' effort to relaunch their characters with new appearances and sensibilities, was published this Wednesday. It was really good and I will likely eventually blog more about it later. But here is something that I really liked from the first few pages.

Jughead's nickname got an origin:

Not only that, but Jughead explains his philosophy in life. Money does not solve anything. Money solves noting.

"If you're going to survive in this world, here's what you need to know: You are who you are. Not what people think you are. Be straight. Be weird. Be whatever. Just be what you wanna be. And if people don't like it..."

We also learned that the "S" on his shirt stands, essentially, for "Suck it!"
