Who says sixty-year-olds have no fashion sense? In the August 17th issue of the New York Times Magazine, Part 2, Fashions of the Times, Betty, Veronica, and the whole Riverdale gang strut their stuff in a six-page fashion comic. The comic was updated for 2003 with Dolce & Gabbana ensembles, as well as a few jokes about the unchanging nature of life in Riverdale over the last 60 years.
Jokes aside, the New York Times Magazine piece is wonderful exposure for a property many haven't seen for years. The Betty and Veronica piece follows on the heels of the recent American Splendor in the Sunday Times (see 'American Splendor Strip in Sunday Times'), continuing the magazine's trend toward mainstream exposure for comics.
