Red Sonja & Vampirella Meet Betty & Veronica has been a hit, so much so that before even three issues were published, the series was extended from a six-issue mini-series to a twelve-issue miniseries. The success isn't surprising when one considers the appeal to at least three fanbases. But now, fans of the classic Archie style will get a little something extra when artist Dan Parent fills in for the entire Red Sonja & Vampirella Meet Betty & Veronica #9, and we've got a preview.
In which we find Archie's horn dog attitude is only exacerbated by the prospect of his love triangle becoming a love pentagon.
And later on in the issue, we find a scene straight out of Apocalypse Now…
…a reference not lost on Sonja. Wait, did they have DVDs in the Hyperborean Age?
Getting PTSD has never seemed so sexy.
Red Sonja & Vampirella Meet Betty & Veronica #9 hits stores on February 26th, but final order cutoff is Monday, so get your orders in soon.
