Book a trip with Veronica in the "Passport" collection

From Archie Comics

Pack your bags and renew your passport – it’s time to take a trip with Veronica! Several, in fact! Traveling is a way of life for this jetsetting rich girl, and now you can relive some of Veronica’s most memorable journeys in this trade paperback collection. Just make sure you’re ready for anything – in addition to seeing all the great historical sites and tourist attractions, Veronica’s been known to get involved with mysteries and adventures … not to mention a local boy or two!

This full-color edition collects some of the more popular globe-trekking tales from the early issues of VERONICA. When the series debuted in 1989, readers were intrigued by the notion of one jetsetting trip after another. Even the New York Times picked up on the story, most likely thrilled that Manhattan would be one of the glamorous destinations of comic books’ favorite rich girl!

In this handsome volume, you’ll feel as if you’re traveling right alongside Veronica, sharing worldwide romance and intrigue along with Mr. and Mrs. Lodge, family friend Lady Smitty and special guest stars. You’ll thrill to the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre museum in France! You’ll marvel at the Pantheon and Colosseum in Rome! Step right up and take a tour of a Bollywood studio and sample the sights and sounds of the city of Bombay in India! And let’s not forget scaling the heights of the Empire State Building and crossing the famous Brooklyn Bridge in New York City! These are just a few of the marvelous landmarks you’ll learn about as you share hilarious travels with Veronica. You’ll also enjoy fabulous pin-ups of fashions from each destination!

As if that weren’t enough, you’ll have an opportunity to witness Veronica’s return trip to Paris in the pages of Veronica’s monthly comic book. In VERONICA #195, she jets off to Paris on a month-long trip and is reunited with Lady Smitty, the family friend who accompanied her on several trips over the years. It isn’t long before Veronica meets Lady Smitty’s nephew who just happens to be a hunk named Archie! The French Archie shows Veronica all the sights – the shops along the Champs Elysees , the Arc de Triomphe, the Moulin Rouge, the Louvre museum and more! But what will happen when the Archie back in the U.S. finds out about Veronica’s new friend? It’s a tale of international love and adventure as only Veronica can get into, and the perfect lead-in to the VERONICA’S PASSPORT trade paperback collection shipping this June!
