Betty & Veronica Styles

Archie Comics is releasing its first ever hardcover book and it’s devoted to Betty and Veronica’s evolution over the ages, special emphasis on their fashionable get-ups.

One of the big exhibits at MoCCA when I was volunteering there was on Archie, so that was my big intro to that whole world.  It’s neat that the ladies are the first to get the hardcover treatment, but then again, who wants to see Archie or Jugheads’ ugly mugs and lazy outfits…  On the other hand, it’s really neat seeing how teen fashion evolved over the decades through the prism of super-stylish B&V.

There’s a trailer at Newsarama, and a review at Comic Book Resources.  Also, super-short notice, but there’s actually a release event & signing for the book at Strand today, 7-8pm, featuring Victor Gorelick, Editor-in-Chief and Co-President of Archie, Craig Yoe, comic book historian, along with Dan Parent and Fernando Ruiz, Archie writer-artists.  Be there or be square…
