I was thrilled to find this book at the New York Comic Con. I have been a fan of Archie Comics since I was a little girl and the main reason was for the gorgeous drawings of Betty & Veronica. This book brought back some wonderful memories with all the gorgeous artwork. And some of the older work, from as far back as the 1940's were before my time but wonderful to see and learn about. I completely enjoyed this - in my opinion - *long overdue* look at these two iconic characters!
