Katy Keene’s only been in Riverdale for a short time now, and she’s already made a big splash. Her unique fashion sense had the students of Riverdale High abuzz before they even knew she was also a social media celebrity, and she became fast friends with Betty, Sabrina, and Jughead.
But not everyone’s as enamored of this glamorous newcomer as they are. Archie has quickly grown jealous of the attention Katy Keene has drawn, in particular a musical performance that seems to have drowned out the debut of his own new song. And now Veronica may have something up her sleeve to help restore the natural order of things in Riverdale. What does she have planned? And will Katy Keene even know what’s hit her?
Check out a preview, exclusive to The Beat, of Archie #712, the penultimate chapter of the “Archie & Katy Keene” storyline. The issue, by Mariko Tamaki, Kevin Panetta, Laura Braga, Matt Herms, and Jack Morelli, is scheduled to go on sale in comic shops and digitally next Wednesday, March 18th.
