FEATURING PART 1 OF A 5-PART, INTERACTIVE STORY WHERE THE READERS DECIDE THE OUTCOME!
“And the Winner Is… Part 1 of 5”: 2008 is an election year, and Archie Comics is no exception as we present a special election of our own: your chance to vote for Cheryl Blossom’s new boyfriend! Ever since her return, Cheryl has been the bane of Betty and Veronica’s existence, complicating their “eternal love triangle” with Archie into an awkward quadrangle! Even though Cheryl has been seeing Reggie lately, the girls would love nothing more than to see Cheryl completely preoccupied with someone other than a Riverdale high hunk! They get their chance when Reggie takes a nonchalant attitude toward his relationship with Cheryl – prompting the red-headed vixen to seek a new boyfriend on the TV show, “The Lonely Hearts Club!” Wait until you see the hot contestants vying for the title! Best yet, over the next few months readers will have a chance to both witness each date in this digest series AND vote on who they think Cheryl should choose online at www.archiecomics.com! It’s the Archie Comics event of the summer, and you don’t want to miss it!
