Betty & Veronica cover reveal: Cute and cuter
The folks at Archie Comics gave us a sneak peek at two covers (regular and variant) for Betty & Veronica #270, which will be out in February. Feel the cuteness!
And if you like these, check out my interview with longtime Archie editor Victor Gorelick and comics historian Craig Yoe about their latest book, The Art of Archie: The Covers, in which Victor talks about what it was like at Archie back in the day, and where their covers came from.
