Archie75Series_Veronica-0
Celebrate the 75th anniversary of Archie Comics with this special retrospective presentation! Since she made her debut in PEP Comics #26 all the way back in 1942, Veronica Lodge has been an alluring figure. Despite her popularity, it wasn’t until 1989 that she finally got her own series. Veronica started in April 1989 and ended in December 2011, spanning across 210 issues. During this run, Veronica travelled across the globe, made some famous friends, joined a pop supergroup and welcomed a new resident to Riverdale that would make history. This collection will give you a glimpse at some of Veronica’s most memorable moments!
