New York, NY (November 22, 2010): Archie Comics--home to the world's   hottest comic book magazine LIFE WITH ARCHIE--is about to get even hotter   as the company gets ready to launch its second magazine title, VERONICA & BETTY!   The creative forces at Archie Comics are pushing boundaries once again   as the new title launching next year will take Veronica and Betty far   away from Archie and the small town of Riverdale into worldwide   adventures!  "Veronica and Betty are on their own as they leave Riverdale to   take on the world as international exchange students. Plus, Archie and   Reggie are pretty excited about the two exchange students that come to   Riverdale in Veronica and Betty's place. The new girls in Archie's town   aren't going to be hard on the eyes or the heart," explained Archie Comics Editor-in-Chief Victor Gorelick.
The glamour and excitement of VERONICA & BETTY magazine   is set to be written by famed ARCHIE WEDDING and LIFE WITH ARCHIE   writer Michael Uslan. The venerable fan-favorite writer will once again   be tapping into the essential Archie questions and setting "VERONICA & BETTY" in an entirely new light.
Illustrated by Archie Comics superstar Dan Parent, the new ongoing   story will switch back and forth between Veronica and Betty's travels   across the globe and Archie, Reggie, Jughead and the new girls turning   Riverdale upside-down in VERONICA & BETTY magazine.
"Everyone has been responding phenomenally to LIFE WITH ARCHIE   magazine. In answer to that demand we are pushing the envelope once   again and switching things around for Archie, Veronica and Betty. That's   where VERONICA & BETTY magazine comes in," stated Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater.
Stay tuned to ArchieComics.com for updates about VERONICA & BETTY magazine, another phenomenal magazine line from Archie Comics, debuting Spring/Summer 2011.




Comments (first page):

Frank : I find myself very happy to hear this news!
Captain Hero : I really am enjoying this magazine format.  The Life With Archie one is a huge hit, and I suspect Veronica & Betty will be too!  I'll be buying it!
Frank : It's actually the right format for "Betty and Veronica Spectacular version 2".  The comic was very "magazine-like" and I think this is the wisest way to re-schedule the title (yes - I do consider this B&V Spectacular's re-birth)

I don't have too many issues of B&V Spectactular (I think I own #70 and #90), but I do like they did with that title, and I'm hoping come May or June, or whenever it comes out, it'll still have the same impact.

Whoa, whoa, whoa there.  How did Veronica get top billing?  Betty's going to be sulking and pouting for weeks over this.

It's Veronica's time for top billing...it's been 58 years in the making!

Or as Dan DeCarlo and Frank Doyle put it over 30 years ago:





Now finally there's a title that we can rhyme!

I love the "Watch it!" from Betty. Frank Doyle did so many great stories. Too bad we don't know more about him...

Wasn't there also a cover for Betty & Veronica where Veronica had the names in the title swapped so that she would get top billing?
