when I kissed you girl I knew how sweet a kiss could be, like the summer sunshine pour your sweetness over me

Okay sooo they've been doing a reboot of Archie Comics, first it was Afterlife with Archie, then I think the guy who did that got all the rights or whatever to do new Archies, now they're releasing new Betty & Veronica cartoons - and I am over the moon about it. I have been obsessed with B&V since... forever. I have read Archie comics my whole life and I lived for Betty, Veronica, Sabrina, Josie & the Pussycats, and even Cheryl Blossom! We used to have an art room with a light table and I would sit and trace different outfits worn by the various ladies. I had pages and pages of them, and it wasn't until I was in my first year of fashion design at college that I realized all those tracings actually came in handy.

They released a ton of various covers for the first issue, so I'm sharing all of my favourites because the artwork is so awesome!
