The Lipstick Incident and a Short History of Lipstick in Comics

Review: Betty and Veronica #276

In some ways it is strange to read this latest issue of Betty and Veronica.  Although the stories of Archie and the gang have been undergoing somewhat of a change in recent years as they have included a string of celebrity guests and covered some heavier topics, this issue also comes out after the end of Archie Comics with issue #666 earlier in the month.   325 more words

The cover for this comic kind of tells the whole story behind the new story arc, except at the same time it really doesn’t.  The girls are bored with Riverdale and seek a way out.  366 more words
