Things We Saw Today: An Exclusive Cover of Betty and Veronica Double Digest #215

Gisèle Lagacé is the lady behind this cover of Betty and Veronica Double Digest, out this August.

When Veronica insists Betty get a makeover at the mall, Betty ends up loving her new look—but not the price tag that comes with it! Can she manage to stay beautiful on a budget? And what will Archie think of her new style? The answer is sealed with a kiss in “Lip Lock”!

Script: Kathleen Webb
Art: Jeff Shultz, Henry Scarpelli, and Vickie Williams
Cover:  Gisele, Tito Peña

  • John Green fans, Ansel Elgort is your movie!Gus. (The Frisky)
  • Some of the folks behind Mass Effect were talking about spinoffs and mentioned Kai Leng and I laughed and laughed. But no seriously, they think Garrus is actually the most likely contender. (Digital Spy)

This Game of Thrones watch costs ten and a half thousand dollars. But it’s called “The Night’s Watch.” So. You’re paying for that pun. Whether as penance, or for its use, I cannot say. (Vanity Fair)

And in conclusion: Don’t touch Lola.

    Corrections: “Lagacé,” not “Laglacé.”

    What in the world is kiss proof lipstick? XD

  • Erin Treat

    What? O_o I’m not sure I understand what the point of having that Betty and Veronica comic featured is. It looks pretty horrible.

  • Robert Vary

    It’s a lipstick that doesn’t smear or rub off easily; i.e., that will stay in place while kissing.

  • Lorraine Schleter

    Anyone else feel really uncomfortable when they see a cover like this? It just looks so….. demeaning and weird…

  • Ben Lundy

    They just can’t emulate the old art style on Archie quite like they used to. Oh well, I got a bunch of old Double Digests from the 80s in a bargain bin at Free Comic Book Day this year!

  • Kathryn

    They can. You want Dan Parent for that – he’s very much in the school of DeCarlo, but I don’t think he’s ever been as good. Ruiz is pretty close to the house-style, too. Trying to remember the names of the other artists they use right now, but they all definitely stay close to the style you’re used to.

    Gisele is definitely one of the more… diverse artists Archie has. Her work on Archie #636 was absolutely brilliant, and it looked like an Archie comic but with refreshingly ‘new’ art.

  • Anonymous

    And it’s “Gisèle”, not “Giséle”.

  • Ben Lundy

    Cool. I occasionally pick up a new issue but I’ve taken mostly to getting digitals of classic collections on my iPad.

  • Dax

    It’s a pretty common cover for Archie comics to be like this, but I agree.

  • Amanda Murray

    Probably because the artist is a popular webcomic artist and it’s cool to see her get this kind of work.

  • Penny Marie Sautereau

    Giselle’s been getting a LOT of Archie work lately. Amazing when you consider how delightfully raunchy and NSFW “Menage A 3″ and “Sticky Dilly Buns” are.
