The Mary Sue Exclusive

Last year we brought you the news of Archie Comics return to fairytales. Well the release is finally upon us! Take a look at our exclusive preview of Betty and Veronica #264 in which the ladies take a turn as Rapunzel. Yes, both of them. 

Here’s the synopsis and details:

BETTY AND VERONICA #264
“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?
