Cheryl Blossom’s Web Of Intrigue Continues To Tighten (And Jughead Maybe Buys A Phone) In ‘Archie’ #14 [Preview]

Archie #14, Archie Comics

In the solicitation for this week's Archie #14, there's a quick line about Cheryl Blossom and Veronica Lodge that casts their relationship into a new light, for me at least. I mean, I knew Cheryl was a wrecking ball with the kind of vast reach and Byzantine plans that you usually only see James Bond fighting against, but I hadn't considered that when she's around, Veronica suddenly becomes Betty. Well, she becomes sort of like Betty, just without the kind heart. But still, it puts her status as Riverdale's most disruptive force in pretty simple terms.

And that disruption is going to be on display this week in Archie #14. Check out a preview --- but keep in mind that Cheryl won't show up until after these pages. Instead, we find out all about Archie trying to get Jughead to buy a phone. Enjoy!
