Riverdale’s little mermaids

Variant cover of: BETTY AND VERONICA #267

In August of last year, Betty and Veronica became mermaids, as they starred in an Archie-fied  version of the story The Little Mermaid. You know… I’m starting to think that the Archie related comics are kind of a sexist look into the stereotypical, white, cisgendered male, fantasy. Is it ironic or coincidental that it took a parody of the story that Disney took that everyone thinks is sexist, in order for me to realize this?

It looks like you can find the variant cover of BETTY AND VERONICA #267 with art by Fiona Staples on ebay for somewhere around $15 (after tax) and up. It might be cheaper on Amazon.
