Betty and Veronica to Get Tangled This February

The Mary Sue Exclusive

Or have I just gotten my princess streams crossed? Hard to tell with Betty in that fetching purple frock. Anyway, Archie comics shared two exclusive covers and a synopsis to the first installment of the Archie Gang’s return to fairy tales with us, so now we’re sharing them with you!

The above cover is by core Archie writer and artist Dan Parent, below is the variant cover by Alitha Martinez:


“Bad Hair Daze! The Story of Rapunzels” – In this retelling of the storybook classic “Rapunzel,” we find two princesses cursed to remain in a tower until they are married off. The only way suitors can get up to the tower is by climbing the long locks of hair they’ve been cursed with. Prince Charming can’t wait, so the girls sneak out and run into a commoner named Archie. Risking their place in the kingdom, the girls naturally compete for Archie’s affections; however, leaving the tower can jeopardize the magic spell! Who will win his love before the sorceress who banished them to the tower catches up with them?

Man, Disney was too scared to put one Rapunzel in the title of their Rapunzel movie, let alone plural RapunzelsB&V #264 will reach stores on February 6th, so you’ve got until then to ponder the undoubtedly thrilling conclusion.
