Comments: Veronica is back in her Riverdale and she is being mysterious to Archie and keeping her secrets.
The art here is darker and the backgrounds seem more dreary.
Sir Frances Lodge the first vampire in America is a descendant of Veronica’s. Veronica wants to learn all about him and she has others digging into it for her.
Edward “Fangs” Fogarty is back in town. He certainly has changed. He is not the only one who has changed. Other things in Riverdale have changed to and the vampire population has gone way up. Riverdale is fast becoming not your friendly little town.
The vampires we see are nicely illustrated and they do not go overboard. They are what you would expect to see here.
Veronica as a vampire is a refreshingly different take on her character. It will be interesting to see the direction this story heads in.
