Classic Archie Returns to Comic Shops with Betty & Veronica: Friends Forever by Bill Golliher & Dan Parent
The fan-favorite classic Archie Comics style is heading back to comics in Betty & Veronica: Friends Forever, a new monthly series for all ages written by Archie veteran Bill Golliher with art by Archie legend Dan Parent. The new series spotlights the timeless best friend duo in themed issues of five-page stories, starting with “At the Movies” in issue #1 this May. The comic features arty by Rich Koslowski, Glenn Whitmore, and Jack Morelli.
Parent and writer Bill Golliher have a long history with Riverdale going back to their seminal 1990s storyline, “Love Showdown” that reintroduced Cheryl Blossom to modern Archie Comics.
Friends Forever will feature the return of the classic style, known across the world for its family-friendly stories and rich history, to the comic shop market to meet growing demand for a classic-style publication in the traditional comic book format. The stories spotlighted in the new series, geared toward comic shops, will also be seen in select B&V digests on the newsstand to maximize the reach of these new classic tales.
Betty & Veronica: Friends Forever launches on May 2 in comic book stores and digital platforms.
