When Jughead #200 arrives, it will not only feature a story by Tom Root, but will feature the company’s first ever variant cover.

“Something Ventured, Something Gained” takes Riverdale High’s fabled teens on their wildest ride ever, as Jughead trades his body’s metabolism to a witch in exchange for an irresistible mega cheeseburger… and everything goes bonkers from there with a chain reaction of cataclysmic proportions!

“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!”
