DeCarlo Rules: I think you can take it as a given that there's no happy ending to Afterlife With Archie, and there's no real conclusion short of "everyone dies". The good guys do not win.; there is no cure for zombies.

DeCarlo Rules:  I couldn't help notice that ACP seems to be focusing on Classic Archie again, now that they're reduced to nothing but the ongoing digests and one-shots.

I just saw the news on Twitter and Archie Comics themselves said that the new B&V series will come out in July!   And the variant comics look awesome!

The variants are nice but how come there only 4 to choose from? I really thought there will be at least 22 like Archie's reboot. I love Veronica Fish's the most.

Is there a link to see the new variant covers for this Betty and Veronica reboot?

I really like the Stephanie Buscema variant cover.

I also like Chip Zdarsky & Stephanie B's covers. Cliff's is alright but it's better than Francvilla's cover.

The only other variant that I kind of like is Cliff's. The others I do not like. I also really like what is going to be the regular cover.

There's 6 listed there, and they don't say that that's all, others may be kept for timed release to keep up interest, or not turned in yet... Too early to say.

I don't think they will have 22 like the Archie reboot. I am thinking more like the Jughead reboot for variant #1 covers.

True, and they may not feel they can afford to pay that many artists this time around.

My absolute favorite variant cover was Cliff's.  To me it captures B&V's different styles and personalities perfectly.

"Pops' Chocklit Shoppe is being taken over by a huge coffee company," it reads. "When Betty and Veronica go head-to-head over the issue, all bets are off! Friendships will shatter. Cities will burn. Nails will be broken."

Sounds right up my alley. This is much better than the Jughead and Archie storylines. Hopefully the plot moves along more swiftly too.

If ACP were smart they would have preorder links up ready to go for this and Kevin but who knows? They might cancel that or some of these covers.

I like all the variant covers except Chip's. It looks very 80s to me. I especially like Francesco's and Cliff's covers. Cliff could even draw the Betty and Veronica comic when Adam drops out. Veronica Fish's cover is also very creative and detailed.

You can only pull off something like 22 cover variants once in a great while, and get retailers to go for it. (That's not even counting the additional dozen or so Retailer Exclusive variants).  Most of those dealers couldn't afford to speculate like that on even one title every month, because there's 200 other books every month with variant covers out there to think about, too.
