Story: Jamie Lee Rotante
Line Art: Sandra Lanz
Color: Kelly Fitzpatrick
Letters: Jack Morelli
Publisher: Archie Comics

Betty and Veronica have to meet their promises for their high school years. They plan to go to the same college and they would keep their promises until the end of the school year, not letting things get in their way.

In this particular comic, it seems Veronica has been sidelined by a job offer at a magazine, also Betty is in the midst of doing a lot of humanitarian work including building houses for the homeless. In the midst of that Betty is also trying to help Moose get his grades up so he can attend college. Veronica has also received another tempting offer from dad, Mr. Lodge. He has offered to pay her way to go to a different college, opposite of what Veronica and Betty have promised each other that they would apply to. With all these hurdles, will Betty and Veronica be able to keep their promises to each other?

I actually do enjoy these Archie comics especially Betty and Veronica. They’re the ultimate frenemies. I like the story; the life of two high school girls who both have the same aspirations but different things are getting in their way and are ultimately pitting against each other. The story by Jamie Lee Rotante is actually a pretty good one, simple and includes the Archie gang with Betty and Veronica at the forefront.

I am not a big fan of the line art by Sandra Lanz, it reminds me of a quick drawing that I have seen from someone who is starting out and perfecting their craft almost. The coloring is by Kelly Fitzpatrick who is a regular in the Archie series and also the lettering is done by the regular Jack Morelli.

All in all, it’s an interesting read but I think that I can wait until this particular series for Betty and Veronica and comes out and trade back to get the full story.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
