Gender-Swapped Valentines: Archie, Betty and Veronica
Gender-swapping has always played an interesting role in comic books, primarily in terms of derivative female characters with significantly smaller costumes, but also as a way to get perspective on how differently comics (and our culture) treats the different sexes and/or create fan art that slightly disturbs people. With the help of Jess Fink, creator of the wonderfully NSFW Chester 5000, we’re flipping the script on some of the most famous romances in comics by changing the sexes of the couples (and triads!) in a series of role reversal valentines, beginning with the famous love triangle of Archie, Betty, and Veronica. February 14th is just around the corner, so feel free to download them and send them to the people you’re sleeping with, or wish you were sleeping with. Because nothing says “we should definitely have sex tonight” quite like a picture of Archie with boobs.
