Every time I see a preview for an Archie comic, it's almost like taking a trip back in time. The characters and art all seem timeless yet if you look carefully, you can see from the content that that isn't the case. The stories often incorporate modern elements and continue to remain fresh.

In the latest issue of BETTY AND VERONICA (on sale next wee), it looks like the competition is still going. Check out our exclusive preview courtesy of Archie Comics.

BETTY AND VERONICA #260

Betty and Veronica in “…The Saga Continues!” – Veronica is desperate to spend time with Archie this summer but his nights are filled with performing as a vampire at Mr. Lodge’s theme park with none other than Betty. Veronica has had enough of his neglect though and goes about scheming a way to snag Archie away from her best friend which may include a yacht, a party, and a movie star!

Betty and Veronica in “The Big Cleanup” – The gang have all gathered at Veronica’s beach house for a summer of fun in the sun! It’s not all rest and relaxation though as Betty and her Green Girls go to work cleaning up the polluted beach. They could use some help from the boys, so Betty does what she must to entice attention-hungry Veronica to lend a hand – call the media!

Betty in “Wash & Warry” – When Mrs. Cooper’s SUV is in need of a serious washing Betty volunteers to help out. But how will anything get cleaned when Archie and Reggie stop by and a water fight ensues?

Betty in “Lucky Horseshoe!” – Clem the “horseshoe king” gets challenged at his own game by Betty, who’s not too bad herself! Will Betty come out on top and be crowned the “horseshoe queen”?

I can see why people read this: good clean fun for kids or a guilty pleasure for adults, but why the hell is it getting reviewed on comicvine?

The adolescent vampire craze has finally come to Archie. Apocalypse now I tell you. Still, love that cover. Have always had a thing for Veronica myself.

i used to like archie when i was younger it gets old after awhile, even though it tries to remain fresh it doesnt take away that there really is no story. they really should drop these comics to $1 each.

Used to love reading the double-digests, the ones that were $4 for like 100-something pages. I won't pay $3 for 20 pages of this though.

It contains no vines but it is a comic...the logic is pretty flawless...

Lots of comics come out each week that comicvine does not feature. Why highlight this one?

Archie Comics probably just gave them the preview, and it got them a few hits, which means more traffic, which means more revenue. Simple.
