This December, It’s “Romance Riverdale Style”

by Jeff

MAMARONECK, NY – October 1, 2007

For nearly 70 years, the lynchpin of Archie Comics has been the romantic entanglements of its main characters. From the eternal “love triangle” between Betty, Veronica and Archie, to Midge’s undying devotion for jealous Moose, to Ethel’s infatuation with uninterested Jughead, romance has played perhaps the most integral of roles in the lives of Riverdale High’s comic book teens. Now, a “bouquet” of stories revolving around love most fair… and love most frightful… awaits you this December. Don’t miss these “lovely” tales!
