Cheryl Blossom returns to the Archies pages

OK, BRBTV hasn't been buying that many Archie Comics since the disappearance of the vivacious redhead Cheryl Blossom (sorry, Mr. Silberkleit!), so imagine our excitement when we get the latest news release from Archie, announcing an upcoming issue featuring our favorite fiery femme ...

"Betty and Veronica will not be outdone," says the release for Betty & Veronica issue #225. "Not when the 'nemesis' in question is Cheryl Blossom! In 'Now for a Really Super Story, Cheryl has larceny on her mind – she’s determined to steal Archie away from his gal pals! What she didn’t count on is Betty and Veronica becoming super-heroic protectors of their man! Veronica dazzles as Pure Fashion Diva Supreme, endowed with the ability to use fashion as a weapon! Betty hits a homer as Pretty Game Star Deluxe, an athletic powerhouse using sports to win in the ultimate competition!" Great! Bring it on!

Also coming up in the Archies ...
