The kick off of Comic-Con in San Diego was as good excuse as any to take a look at the fashions of Archie's two favorite gang-members through the years. Whether you're a Betty or a Veronica fan (count me on team brunette), both ladies had their share of stylish moments in the period between the early 60's through the early 90's. As a girl, my Archie comic collection was my most prized possession. Now the issues sit in a magazine rack next to my toilet, where there are of no less value. I hand selected and hand-scanned some of my favorite looks from my bathroom reading. This way no one has to actually touch them.
