Today, we look at how a little bit of the scary world of Archie Comics is inching into the classic style of Archie Comics.
This is Archie Sundays. Every week, I share a preview of the newest Archie Comics releases that week, plus occasional spotlights on the latest Archie news and whatever else I feel like discussing, Archie-wise.
This time around, we look at a preview of this week’s Betty and Veronica Double Digest #321.
As you know by now, Archie Comics generally are split into two different types of comics (there are more than just these two, but these are the two MAIN types), “classic” style Archie stories, but also stories in the Archie “Horrorverse,” that are for an adult audience.
In this week’s Betty and Veronica Double Digest #321, the worlds collide in this cute story showing a the horrors of Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe done in the classic style…
BETTY & VERONICA DIGEST #321
TWO BRAND NEW STORIES! First, Moose is jealous of Reggie because Midge thinks he’s attractive, but Moose feels he has no sense of style… so it’s B and V to the rescue! Then, things get spooky in Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe (of Horrors!). On a quest to unravel the source of ghoulish happenings, Betty and Veronica stumble upon a dark portal beneath Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe, and with the help of an unexpected phrase, they unleash and then quell its supernatural chaos. …Or did they?
