by Jeff

Media Release — Archie Comics and pop culture have gone together forever. Singing sensations, hit TV shows, popular movies, hot fashions, the latest toys and gadgets – one look through any ARCHIE AMERICANA trade paperback is all it takes to realize all have had a featured place in the pages of Archie Comics throughout the years. Now, Betty and Veronica take pop culture to new heights of hilarity in a pair of star-struck issues shipping this July.

The razzle-dazzle fun begins in BETTY & VERONICA SPECTACULAR #90. This celebrity-packed issue offers readers a chance to see more stars than there are in solar system! In “Star Struck,” it’s a boy band brouhaha, as Betty and Veronica get jobs as reporters for Ginger Lopez’s “Glitz Magazine” and have a controversial run-in with The Juneau Brothers! Then, in “Paparazzi Problem,” “rumor” has it that the girls grapple with the age old dilemma: to gossip or not to gossip! Finally, in “Sign Me Up” Mr. Lodge reveals a sensational secret from his past: he once dated a celebrity! All this, plus pop-culture extras like a Hollywood quiz, celebrity fashions, and more!

The pop culture comedy continues in BETTY #181, with a spoof of one of the most popular movies of recent years. In “The Diva Wore Yada,” a summer internship at “Harmon’s Bazzar” fashion magazine brings Betty face-to-face with a demanding diva of a boss. Imagine Betty’s surprise when the boss demands she model for the magazine’s spring fashion spectacular! Celebrity news columnist Hal Lifson brings his fashionable first-hand perspective to this “tongue-in-chic” tale!
