All Heck breaks loose in Riverdale as the final act of "Betty Versus Veronica" reaches its combustible conclusion! The streets of Riverdale run red under the rockets' red glare and no one will ever be the same!

    This has been a fun trilogy - and hopefully not the last time we'll see Hughes showing off his fine comic chops. Read Full Review

    In one of the funniest scenes I've read in my 25+ years of reading Archie comics, Betty looses her damn mind and proceeds to beat the heck out of Veronica. Hughes shines with his dialogue in these scenes. They are, simply put, comedy gold. The art compliments the story extremely well. Betty and Veronica are both drawn with care and respect. Each character in Riverdale has their own signature look and feel, which really brings this town to life. I sincerely hope this series continues and is on a more regular schedule. Read Full Review

    Besides Hughes’ writing, the thing that really sells this story is the art. All throughout, it has a bit of a gloomy feel, like the colors are covered by a haze of grey. If it were just a wee bit more orange, it’d almost pass for a Francisco Francavilla horror book. There’s even a gorgeous page that looks like it could have been lifted straight out of “Carrie”. But my favorite use of color may just be the whole “red vs blue” thing. Through the entire book, Betty and Veronica are each dressed in variations of blue or red, respectively. It’s so subtle, but hugely effective. I’ll be very curious to see if he keeps this up past this arc. I can’t wait for next month! Read Full Review

    It's unfortunate that it took three issues for this book to realize its full potential, but this capper is nonetheless a satisfying one. Read Full Review

    I have been so damn spoiled by the art in this book, I'd have a hard time accepting anyone who follows Hughes, let alone the fourth-rater who'll probably replace him. The story is nice too.

    This was a fun issue, a nice conclusion to the story. It was funny to see Betty Hulk-out, and, most importantly, it looked absolutely fantastic with Adam Hughes' art. I hope he sticks with this series, even if it means only 3 or so issues a year.
