Betty and Veronica through the decades

Archie Comics artist & writer Dan Parent made six variant covers for the “Betty and Veronica” 625th issue. The covers show off their styles through several decades from the 1950s to present day. The 1980s variant is quite fun as Archie Andrews is break-dancing on the floor. Dan does a great job of capturing each decade’s look all the way down to the changing hairstyles.

Also check out a Kickstarter project that Dan Parent and fellow Archie Comics artist Fernando Ruiz are working on. It’s for a comic book series called Die Kitty Die!
