"amazing that they still exist"

Can most of it be attributed to Supermarket checkout "Digest" sales?

Somehow, I can't help thinking they both have YouTube accounts and like to film themselves lip-synching to Britney Spears songs.

There are four pages of preview art online:

Anyway, this doesn't change the immutable fact that real men prefer VeronicaWink

Based on the inside artwork (which is very different from the cover) - I'd pick Betty in a heartbeat.  I think the new style is very fun and friendly - I like it.

Archie Comics has responded to the hoopla:

The first installment finally hit the stands.

Review, sample pages, and comments:

Archie Comics has also updated their comment page:

I read the story.  I liked the "new look" even though the artwork could have been better - it just wasn't well done.  Sort of like a poor artist drawing from good model sheets.

Saw it at the supermarket but was in a hurry.  I only bought some spaghetti sauce and a chocolate bar.
