I didn't bother blogging about the recent makeover of Archie comics, as reported on various outlets including Boing Boing, because - well, I just didn't believe it. It all stank a little too much of a marketing ploy, a rerun of new Coke and classic Coke, an attempt to create a public outcry before returning back to the style the "public demanded". Even that cover looked a little fake. Well, this little entry on the Archie blog seems to confirm my suspicions. So now you can all breathe a sigh of relief.

I can't believe Betty & Veronica have their own blogs! What is happening to the internet? Oh, and as for the makeovers...Veronica's was way too wholesome. :)

The scheme apparently worked: I didn't know Archie Comics were still being produced until this "controversy."
