Betty and Veronica #1
In this decidedly vintage series of everyone’s favourite frenemies, Betty and Veronica face off on the opposite sides of a battle that has all of Riverdale talking. When Pop’s Choklit Shoppe is bought out by a coffee chain, The girls end up on opposite sides of the conflict.
- Nostalgia reigns supreme throughout this issue of Betty and Veronica. Everything from the plot to the art has been designed in a way that brings to mind the original issues a long time ago. Even though the modern world is very present with cell phones and the gentrification plot, it feels familiar and reminds us why we keep coming back to Riverdale after all these years.
- The way the story is set up has Jughead’s dog as the narrator, with a much classier voice than you might think, adds a level of joy to the story. His comments on the situation help elevate this book to another level.
- Now the thought that clowns can travel through closets is part of my subconscious.
- There is nothing bad about this comic, it is pure joy and happiness so this is really the only thing that I can say.
- The art of this issue of Betty and Veronica is my favourite that I have seen in a long time. Where many of the other series try to have a more modern feel, this series has decided to go in the exact opposite direction and 100% nails it. This comic perfectly combines the classic styles of the original issues while still modernizing enough that younger generations will still be interested.
- One of the things that the Archie and Friends comics are known for is their humour. This comic does not shy away from that at all. With sight gags for the younger readers and more nuanced jokes for those of us who are returning to an old favourite, there really is something for everyone.
