Adam Hughes' Betty & Veronica and Dan Parent's Life With Kevin is back on track according to Archie Comics, after being announced back in May 2015 in the now-cancelled company-wide Kickstarter.
Betty & Veronica #1 is scheduled to debut July 20, with Hughes both writing and drawing the relaunched ongoing series that the publisher describes with the phrase "Best friends. Bitter rivals."
"As Riverdale’s most beloved blonde and brunette find themselves divided over the takeover of the town’s central hangout, Pop’s Chocklit Shoppe, battle lines are drawn and friends have become enemies as the town is enveloped in all-out civil war!" reads Archie Comics' description. "Oh, and there will be jokes. Plenty of jokes."
Parent's four-issue Life With Kevin series will debut digitally in June, in what Archie Comics describes as "an older, more mature" Kevin Keller. Like Hughes' Betty & Veronica, Parent will be writing and drawing Keller's new series, with J. Bone joining him as inker.
"...Life With Kevin will explore Kevin's life after high school and college as he ventures beyond the cozy confines of Riverdale and into a new world of challenges and opportunities in the big city," according to the publisher.
