Betty And Veronica #265 – Archie Comics mashes up the Riverdale gang with your favorite fairy tales! The Enchantress Veronica has placed a curse on Prince Archie, turning him into a beast, because he had no love in his heart for her. Unless another can fall for Prince Archie before his 21st birthday, he will remain a beast for all eternity. Just when all hope seems lost, a beauty arrives by the name of Betty. Could she be the one to at long last break the spell? Not if Enchantress Veronica has anything to say about it! If she can’t have Archie, then no one can! This is the second fairy tale mashup for the Archie girls. Last month featured the girls as rival Rapunzels for the Prince Archie’s affections. This looks like a fun series that kids and lovers of fairy tales will enjoy. Check out the preview from Comic Book Resources!
Adventure Time #15 – Boom! Studios creates a jumping-on point for new readers to the land of Ooo! In a topsy-turvy take on the land of Ooo, this stand-alone issue takes Jake the Dog and Finn the Human on an adventure after Magic Man crashes Princess Bubblegum’s Princess High Tea party. Finn and Jake jump in to help the princesses but lose their voices in the process. They must track down Magic Man and make him give them their voices back. This break between story arcs gives new readers a great opportunity to jump in on the action. Adventure Time is a comic that has the appeal to truly reach all ages and can be enjoyed with or without seeing the show. Check out the preview for this issue also from Comic Book Resources.
