For over 65 years, Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge have been fighting over Archie Andrews while maintaining their friendship in “Betty & Veronica.” They”ve weathered everything from bad fashion to unwanted new rivals (looking at you, Cheryl Blossom). But in the end, the girls have always lived by ancient proverb: Ovaries before brovaries.
For the landmark 275th issue of the iconic series, Archie Comics is pulling out all the stops. The double-sized issue will feature multiple collector covers and a ton of bonus content. (Disclosure: Including a short essay from myself about my affection for these ladies!)
