The Occupy Movement Comes to Archie Comics

Continuing the franchise’s trend of jumping on breaking issues, including equal marriage rights and the end of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, it looks like Riverdale, New York, home of the Archie comics gang, is about to get occupied. Now, given the long-running rivalry between middle-class Betty Cooper and rich Veronica Lodge (not to mention the super-1 percent-y Cheryl and Jason Blossom), class warfare has always been part of Archie storylines. But it looks like Betty and Veronica’s eternal duel over Archie is about to get kicked up a notch, with Betty and Jughead taking to the streets while Veronica and Reggie find themselves under siege.
