The Mary Sue Exclusive Preview: Josie and the Pussycats Crash the Variant Cover of Life With Archie #33
The Mary Sue Exclusive
We’ve put Chrissie Zullo‘s variant cover of Life With Archie #33: The Married Life, above the cut, because… well, look at it! To borrow a bit of ’70s vernacular: This Josie and the Pussycats art is groovy. Head behind the cut for the regular cover and more info on the issue, which sees Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their compatriots all adjusting to domestic life.
“Archie Marries Veronica”: Veronica’s in trouble, but with a smart legal counsel and SAM HILL, the best detective around, on her side, she can’t possibly lose—can she? Jughead struggles to save his Chocklit Shoppe so he calls in the big guns—an old “friend” and business partner. Can the Shoppe survive or will it go under like the rest? And big questions arise—for everyone!
“Archie Marries Betty”: Big changes are happening in Riverdale! Between switching careers and growing families, everyone’s got a lot on their plates! With everyone so busy, Archie has had to hire someone new to manage the Chowhouse Too. The new manager is efficient and experienced, but a newbie to Riverdale. Can he make good decisions without changing the way things were too much? Meanwhile, Jughead’s a wreck while his and Midge’s baby is on the way. Can he continue to run the Chocklit Shoppe while he waits? Or will he need to get by with a little help from his friends? Features variant cover art by rising comic star Chrissie Zullo (Cinderella: From Fabletown with Love)!
