New series by Jamie Rotante and Eva Cabrera launches in November.
Archie Comics continues its wave of “re-imaginations” of its characters with B&V Vixens, a take on Betty and Veronica as leaders of a biker gang in Riverdale. The idea for the series came from Archie editor Jamie Rotante, who will be joined by artist Eva Cabrera.
“I couldn’t be more honored and excited for the opportunity to not only let pop culture’s two most recognizable BFFs take center stage, but to give them the opportunity to kick a whole lot of ass along the way,” Rotante said to The Hollywood Reporter. “Betty and Veronica aren’t just two young ladies who happen to like the same boy — they’re two hard-working, intelligent and strong women who maintain a friendship despite their differences; consistently defying all expectations to overcome the odds stacked against them. That’s something I really wanted to explore with this series — and not just Betty and Veronica, many of the female Archie Comics characters will get a chance to tell their own unique stories in a way that’s fun and action-packed.”

Archie Comics will offer #TeamBetty and #TeamVeronica shirts at Comic-Con, so pick your side now.
With Archie’s new “Betty & Veronica” comic by Adam Hughes arriving in stores this week, it makes sense that Archie Comics would put some promotion behind it at Comic-Con International, which also arrives this week in San Diego. So what better way than asking attendees to declare their allegiance to their favorite?
Per their blog, Archie will sell #TeamBetty and #TeamVeronica T-shirts and lanyards at the convention:
And for those who like both equally (yeah, right), they’re offering a “neutral” Betty and Veronica shirt, featuring artwork by Hughes:
All shirts will be available at the Archie Comics Booth #1829 for $25. Lanyards are $5 each.
