Twilight Meet Archie & Veronica

Here's an interesting piece of news: Archie & Friends is devoting its #146 book to Twilight, and it's the first of a two-part Twilite series.

It’s love at first bite when two new students arrive in Riverdale. Betty and Veronica are fascinated by the smoldering-hot Ivan, but Jarred is warning everyone who’ll listen that Ivan is really a vampire! Reggie volunteers to help Jarred expose Ivan as a bloodsucker, but love–or maybe Ivan–is clouding the girls’ judgment. Can the girls be saved before romance sinks its teeth in?

The issue will hit stands on August 8th, according to one source.

From the cover image, it looks as though the book will play off of some of the physical characteristics decribed in the Twilight series, but it also seems the story will take a few necessary liberties to make it Archie material.

That said, it'd be a shame if they didn't turn Archie's "jalopy" into a silver Volvo . . .

Your thoughts on this news?
