I didn’t have a big problem with the redesign of Betty and Veronica (I mean, I didn’t think the redesign was good, but I didn’t have a problem with the IDEA). Nor do I have a problem with Jughead getting the same treatment (courtesy of Joe Staton – click on the cover to enlarge).
My problem is that rather than just give Jughead a new LOOK, they’re also changing the CHARACTER, by doing a Jughead romance story.
I don’t mind the idea of a Jughead romance story (although they tried the idea in the late 80s/early 90s, and ended up dropping the concept – with a very heartfelt issue where Jughead explains that he is just not ready to date – good work by whoever wrote the issue – was it Boldman?), but I think it is silly to change both the look AND the character concept at the SAME time.
Do it gradually, Archie!!
