Preview: ‘Betty & Veronica Friends Jumbo Comics Digest’ #260
Here’s a first look at Betty & Veronica Friends Jumbo Comics Digest #260, which features a new lead story by writer Bill Golliher and artist Dan Parent, done in the traditional Archie style:
When a famous director comes to town to film his latest movie locally, the girls get parts as extras. Both strive to outdo each other and make their parts larger much to the director’s chagrin.
Don’t ever change, Betty and Veronica! (Ha! No worries there!) The digest is available on Wednesday, but you can start reading right here. Enjoy!
