I’m not sure if Jaime Hernandez has ever drawn the Archie characters “for reals” before, but it’s a very well known fact that Archie artist Harry Lucey was a HUGE influence on both Hernandez Brothers. So call this full circle as Jaime does a variant cover for the fourth issue of the revamped/real world Archie title by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. Can you say…oh yes yes yes.
The biggest comic series of the year continues! What was the “lipstick incident” that pushed Archie and Betty apart? And can the smartest boy in Riverdale fix it?
