Archie Comics is in the midst of a full on revamp of their universe and they’re bringing a lot to San Diego Comic-Con. While the new Riverdale show on the CW is getting a lot of hype, there wouldn’t be anything without the comics.

Archie Comics is bringing two SDCC exclusive covers you can pick up at their booth, #1829, as well as a whole slew of talent for autograph signings.

Here’s a look at their exclusives:

Betty & Veronica #1 SDCC Exclusive Variant ($10): IT’S BETTY VS. VERONICA! The most highly-anticipated debut in comics history is here with an exclusive convention cover by comics legend Adam Hughes! Betty and Veronica are America’s sweethearts… until they turn on each other! “Pops’ Chocklit Shoppe is being taken over by a huge coffee company. When Betty and Veronica go head-to-head over the issue, all bets are off! Friendships will shatter. Cities will burn. Nails will be broken. Betty and Veronica are back in this ALL-NEW #1!
