Ah, the Information Age! Even though it is just past, the 1990's have already established themselves as a time full of character and personality. Thus, Archie Comics continues their fine tradition of Americana Series reprints in this graphic novel, featuring the hilarious antics of Archie and the gang as they discover the internet, high-tech video games, and of course, boy bands! Stories include: "Jersey City, 07303" - Parodying a popular 90's TV show (you can probably figure out which!), this story is full of hilarity and drama as only Betty &Veronica can deliver. Our very own Ms. Betty Cooper is chosen to appear on her favorite show alongside teen heartthrob, Luke Periodical, and she brings Veronica as her "co-star"! But when Veronica finds out Betty is to have a line of dialogue, jealous Ms. Lodge decides to try some "inspired improvisation"! One thing's for sure: Hollywood will never be the same!
