RIGHT ON! ARCHIE’s Next DECADES Collection to Feature BETTY AND VERONICA in the ’70s

EXCLUSIVE: Their best decade, if you ask me…

I dig Archie Comics’ decades collections and they’ve got a groovy one headed your way in March: Betty and Veronica Decades: The 1970s.

Check out the official solicitation info, which will be released officially by Archie later in December:

Continue the 80+-year celebration of Archie Comics with this special retrospective collection! Betty & Veronica shined bright in the 1970s when their standalone title proved to be interesting, hilarious, and unforgettable—and their fashion was always top-notch! “Decades” features some of the iconic stories that cemented their lasting imprint on the world.

When it comes to Archie, I am all about the ’70s. That’s when I discovered them through our friends, the Kessins, and looking back, they’re an ideal snapshot of a particular era. The fashions dazzle and the subject matter is often very much of its time. I wouldn’t go so far as to call a book like this a sociology text, but you’ll certainly grok the decade’s zeitgeist.

Far out!
