If you had to choose a place in Riverdale to hang out, it would almost have to be Lodge Manor, right? I mean, yes, there's a mustachioed plutocrat who's going to be glowering at you for the whole time, and a butler with surprisingly well-developed upper-body strength just waiting to toss you out on your ear, but that's balanced out by the pool, the spacious billiard room, and a chef willing to prepare a feast that would satisfy even Jughead Jones.

Alas, that's no longer an option for Archie and Veronica. After Mark Waid and Veronica Fish's Archie #8 ended with the revelation that Veronica can only continue to date the Andrews boy if Hiram Lodge never has to see him, they'll be spending a lot of time at Archie's house --- and that means that in the next issue, Veronica's going to be changing things to be a bit more to her liking.

Check out an unlettered preview of Archie #9 below!

 

 

Okay, I realize that it's surprising, but if Mary Andrews isn't down with having an entire pig for an after-school snack, then I don't know what to tell her. Seems pretty ideal to me.

Here's the official solicitation:

ARCHIE #9
Archie is forever barred from Lodge Manor! Now Veronica has to live in Archie’s world if she wants to see him—and she’s turning the whole Andrews family upside-down!​
