The Mary Sue Exclusive Preview: Betty and Veronica Channel Rosie the Riveter


This is Jeff Schultz and Rosario “Tito” Peña‘s variant cover for Betty & Veronica #269, in which the pair do something new for Archie Comics: They go through “the typical day of a Riverdale teen” in real time! I’m sure their adventures are more interesting than mine when I was a teenager, though to be fair that’s not a particularly high bar. But I don’t know… bus rides to weekend debate tournaments could be pret-ty raucous. You know what I mean, high school debate team members. You know.

The regular cover and more information on the issue are behind the jump.

    Wow. Attempt to appropriate feminist iconography on one hand, and spew forth tired “sexy angel” & “sexy devil” costumes on the other. Feels kinda icky to me.

    I have to admit, I’m a huge Dan Parent fan and I’m not really into that cover at all. The Rosie the Riveter cover isn’t a bad idea though, but they look like two of the same person with different color hair and not much like Betty & Veronica at all.
