article imageArchie Comics gets a more-realistic new look

By Patrix     Dec 18, 2006 in Lifestyle
Archie and his gang that spread the American suburban culture all over the world is changing. Archie, Betty, Veronica, and the whole Riverdale gang will be getting a new look in 2007, courtesy of artist Steven Butler. Does it work?
"The first of the “new look” Archie and company will appear in May’s Betty and Veronica Double Digest #151, in “Bad Boy Trouble” written by Melanie J. Morgan. In addition to the look, the stories themselves will change format, switching from short tales to fuller-length stories. As such the digests will contain four stories, spanning issues #151-#154 which will run 25 pages each, when fully told."
I am not sure people will warm up to this because I don't know who still reads Archie and those who do will not like the changes. I wonder how they would change Jughead and if he would still have his crown because a realistic rendering of that would make him look like a poster boy for Burger King (hey, a product placement ad)
Archie still looks dorky although I think they might have made him work out and lose some face flab :)
