Veronica Lodge is getting a character makeover in this series and I like it. Gone is the spoiled and clueless diva in the old comics. In this new comic series she’s smart and good hearted but has no problem unleashing her mean streak when needed. Here she even manages to get around a Mr. Collier who obviously had it in for her.
Betty Cooper’s uncle, Mr. Collier, ran against Mr. Lodge in the mayoral elections in a previous issue. It ended badly and Mr. Collier ended up leaving Riverdale.
