A classic Archie superhero returns to duty in Betty Cooper: Superteen #1 by Danielle Paige and Brittney Williams!
Riverdale’s favorite girl-next-door is upgrading her already impressive power set this June as she takes the lead in a super-fun, super-exciting, super-powered one-shot comic book, Betty Cooper: Superteen!
Based on the classic superpowered versions of the Riverdale gang dating back to 1965, known as “Archie’s Super Teens,” this modern update of Betty’s super alter ego is written by YA fantasy phenom Danielle Paige, and features an updated stylistic look by artist Brittney Williams. Betty’s modernized costume was redesigned by Robbi Rodriguez of Spider-Gwen fame.
In this fresh starting point for new Superteen fans, Betty is gifted with superpowers and takes the opportunity to level up her constant efforts to help people. But a new villain is on the scene, as well, and it looks like it might be her BFF, Veronica!
Betty Cooper is always trying her best. To be the best student. The best friend. The best person she can be. She’s not perfect – but she’s always willing to help. But when she finds herself gifted with out-of-this-world powers can Betty still do good without it affecting the low-key life she’s come to love? Also, what’s up with that villain looking a lot like . . . Veronica? BETTY COOPER: SUPERTEEN is a fun, action-adventure exploration of what it means to be a hero, set firmly in the familiar and modern world of Archie Comics.
Written by Daniel Paige, the comic features art by Brittney Williams, Matt Herms, and Jack Morelli. It features a main cover by Williams with variants by Michael Allred, Emanuela Luppacchino, Marguerite Sauvage, and Michael Walsh. Betty Cooper: Superteen arrives in comic shops on June 10, 2020.
