In another story of the Archie gang for the horror lovers, Veronica is a vampire. After Archie passes on a date night with Veronica for Betty, Veronica pushes Reggie into a date. When she walks into her study to say goodbye to her parents, she sees that they are dead. A stranger emerges (who eerily looks like Spike from Buffy) and attacks Veronica biting her neck. He means to kill her but she escapes. Any person familiar with vampire lore knows that if a vampire bites you but doesn’t kill you, you will become one. Now Veronica is a vampire, what will become of her social life?
