Betty and Veronica

There's been a lot of hoopla over the Archie marrying Veronica and then Archie marrying Betty comics that have come out and, if fact, will still be coming out over the next few months. There's been lots of hype about it, which is fine. I don't really care all that much one way or another. It's Archie comics. I think the last one I bought was one where Archie and the gang visit Newfoundland to help Mr. Lodge avoid his ragweed allergies, stop some archeology thieves and "ogle all the hot Newfoundland girls" (actual piece of dialogue).

But some people have hated these issues. Welcome to the world of comic book fandom, where someone can always find slight or offense over the most banal of things. So yes, there are people who objected Archie marrying Veronica in an "imaginary" story and then marrying Better in another.

But at least one person had a sense of humour about it.

This is obviously photoshopped to within an inch of its life, but it's still a lot of fun. That's a comic I'd actually buy. And one I suspect Laura would buy many, many copies of.

Me too! It would be great :)

I didn't even know they still made those comics... last time I saw one was the late 70's before I reached puberty...
