Harley & Ivy Meet Betty & Veronica #1,
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer
Free college tuition for all Riverdale residents?! That's the plan-after the town drains the wetlands that lie between it and Gotham City and then builds a new campus. The only snag? A certain botany-obsessed super-villain. When Poison Ivy enlists her bestie, Harley, to kidnap both Veronica Lodge, daughter of Riverdale's most important citizen, and her friend Betty, she's counting on some assistance-and the mayhem that ensues will probably work as well! DC Comics and Archie are proud to present the adventure of a lifetime for all these best pals. Their hijinks are brought to you by the real-life team-up of Paul Dini (HARLEY QUINN) and Marc Andreyko (WONDER WOMAN '77), with art by Laura Braga (DC BOMBSHELLS)! RATED T

Sometimes you've got to throw common sense to the wind and say what the heck. Crossovers with the Archie universe are usually not all that great as you either have to change the Archie characters into darker versions of themselves or change their guests into more comical versions of themselves just to have everyone match up. Luckily, Paul Dini and Marc Andreyko have the talent to sidestep this issue and provide us with a very entertaining look into both sets of girls' lives and come up with an interesting reason for their meeting. And while I am a bit confused by the new take on Archie (wasn't a big fan of Smallville either) I enjoyed this.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
