Stephanie Buscema nails it again with another variant cover to an Archie fairy tale. There’s absolutely nothing that doesn’t look fantastic in a Little Golden Book style. Click on to see both covers and a five page preview!
Betty & Veronica in “Reggiestiltskin”—Archie’s take on classic fairy tales continues with Betty and Veronica as two peasant girls who fall in love with a Prince named Archie—unfortunately Prince Archie is already betrothed to the evil princess Cheryl! When Cheryl finds out that Archie’s interested in the two peasants, she imprisons the girls in her dungeon. The only way they can be set free is to spin straw into gold—psh, yeah right—how is that possible?! Throw an evil little troll into the mix and things REALLY get crazy. Will he be their key to freedom or will he only make things worse? And what exactly is that little weirdo’s name? Prepare for more fairy tale fun in this reimagining of Rumplestiltskin!
