    Outright Geekery - Tom Guilfoyle Oct 22, 2017

    Betty and Veronica's Vixens is a fun read that is definitely targeted at a female demography. They hit that target perfectly. Jamie's writing is reminiscent of Archie of old and revitalize that fun here. the overall arch is possibly predictable however, if the writing continues at this calibre it will be an enjoyable ride.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Oct 27, 2017

    Towards the end of 2017, it seems like Archie Comics is going the “Elseworlds” approach with their non-flagship books, andBetty and Veronica: Vixensis a shining example of how this type of philosophy can be successful with quick one-liners and feminist critiques from writer Jamie Lee Rotante, easy to read and stylish storytelling from artist Eva Cabrera, and a varied color palette from Elaina Unger that ranges fromRebel without a Causeto the suburban bits ofEdward Scissorhands.

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea Nov 13, 2017

    'Betty and Veronica: Vixens' is pure fun with an empowering feminist twist that leaves behind the classic love triangle and trades it in for black leather, motorcycles, and brass knuckles. You've never seen Betty and Veronica quite like this and it shows what Archie Comics' alternate stories can do. Get your motor running to your local comic shop and pick this up.  Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 29, 2017

    Vixens has a kind of awkward setup as it gets underway but the charms of Betty and Veronica are what will carry it forward. The guys don't come across too well here but it fits in with their nature in general as we've seen over the years and makes for some cute little moments as the girls realize how they have to step up. Cabrera's art style works well enough but part of me wishes for something more stylized and mature rather than a nod toward its older days and approach. Especially since the cover design hints a bit more at sexiness and style than we get in the book itself. I like Cabrera's stuff here and would dig it in a more mainline book for the characters but something about Vixens just has me wishing it had taken a different approach to the artwork.

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 24, 2017

    I am a little confused by thecreators intent. Are they trying to show that Betty and Veronica can be strong female characters? If that's the case, then why do they have emulate men?Are theytrying to be sexier than it's core base? If so, why retain the Archie house style of art? Still, at the moment there is no doubt that thereis a strength of appeal to all things Archie at the moment. A resurgent comic book and the TV show Riverdale proves that the material is strong enough for multiple versions, with each one having their own fans. This seriesmay well act as a bridge between the more innocent books and the show, with it ambiguous moral code. Read Full Review
