Archie Comics has announced the classic Archie characters Betty and Veronica will get a new look in May 2007 in Betty and Veronica Double Digest #151.


What do think? Do you like your Archie characters traditional, or are you hip on the new style?

UPDATE: Here’s a good news/bad news thing. The good news is I’ve learned this is only going to be a four issue “test”. The bad news is they still look a little freaky for my taste.

  1. “…are you hip on the new style?”
    Could these character designs be more bland? They look like something out of the $0.85 coloring books you find at Safeway. This looks like a decision made by a middle manager without a creative bone in his body.

  2. Bruce>> FYI: Yu-Gi-Oh is “manga style” because it originaly was a manga, and the cartoon was drawn and animated in Japan where it originally aired.
