This August, Archie and the gang take a trip to the mysterious Reversedale when Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Salem the cat do a complete genetic makeover on the town of Riverdale to help the gang discover the difficulty of walking a mile in each other’s shoes. While the regular cover for “Archie” #636 sets up the central concept of the plot for the story arc, the issue’s variant cover brings a new perspective to a classic “Archie” cover set up featuring gender-switched versions of Archie, Veronica and Betty.
