Writing for the Colorado Springs Gazette, Bill Radford looks at the negative feedback over Betty and Veronica’s recent makeover:
You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind — and apparently you don’t mess with Archie Andrews and the gang.
In December, Archie Comics announced that a new “dynamic art style” was coming for its classic characters.
Fans were not pleased, managing editor Victor Gorelick says. “Most of the readers were `How can you give them this new look?’” Gorelick said. “‘I’ve read Archie all my life and now you’re changing him.’
Personally, I don’t really see any reason not to change the characters’ looks. My five-year-old daughter, however, has already expressed her disapproval about the makeover to me.
An added bonus: Archie comic or indie film? You decide!
