We previously showed you Archie Comics’ return to storybook land with a Rapunzel issue of Betty and Veronica. Now we’re happy to exclusively present the variant cover to Betty and Veronica #265 drawn by Womanthology creator Renae De Liz! Here’s the summary of the issue:
“Betty and the Beast”— If Veronica can’t have Archie, no one can! Prince Archie has been cursed into beast-form by Enchantress Veronica who saw no love in his heart for her. There is, however, a loophole to the spell: if another falls for Archie by his 21st birthday, the curse will be lifted! Otherwise, he’ll remain a beast for eternity. Just when it seems all hope is lost, along comes a romantic contender named Betty. Could she be the one? Will the spell be broken at long last? Not if Enchantress Veronica has anything to say about it!
Written by Dan Parent with art by Jeff Shultz and a regular cover by Parent, Betty and Veronica #265 is on sale for $2.99 on April 17th.
