Archie Comics sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Betty & Veronica #245 and Tales from Riverdale Digest #36.   Both issues arrive in stores on December 16, 2009.

BETTY & VERONICA #245
“Now THAT Was a Mistake”: When Archie wins not one, not two, but FIVE bouquets of roses from the local florist, he has to send them somewhere… and Betty and Veronica sure aren’t happy about the other three!
SCRIPT: Kathleen Webb
ART: Jeff Shultz
“Eat Those Words”: Veronica enters a world she doesn’t understand: the supermarket, where items marked “cheap” are desirable, you have to pick a number and wait in line for cold cuts, and you scan and bag your own items!
SCRIPT: Mike Pellowski
ART: Jeff Shultz
“Good Old Days”: A senior from the retirement home tells Betty and Veronica what it was like to be in the middle of a “love triangle” in an age without cell phones, texting and the internet!
SCRIPT: Mike Pellowski
ART: Jeff Shultz
“Snow Daze”: The girls would never be so immature as to participate in the boys’ snowball brawl… unless they got hit, of course!

TALES FROM RIVERDALE DIGEST #36
“No Time for History”: The new exchange student is out of this world… way out!  Summer Madison has been sent from the future to witness 21st century life first-hand… and to meet Archie Andrews, who apparently is quite the hero in the history books of the future!  But when Riverdale’s teens grow suspicious of her, it could lead to full-blown space-time continuum chaos!  You haven’t got “time” to waste – reserve this issue today!
SCRIPT: Bill Golliher
ART: Fernando Ruiz
“What’s in a Name”: Rotten Reggie excels at calling people names – especially when an unusually named family moves into Riverdale!
SCRIPT AND ART: Tim Kennedy
PLUS: Other new and classic tales!
SCRIPT AND ART: Various talents
