Betty Cooper and Reggie Mantle by Porcelain-Requiem Betty Cooper and Reggie Mantle by Porcelain-Requiem
Betty Cooper and Reggie Mantle. One of my favorite couples in "Archie Comics" history.

So, I drew 'em in my own style, based off of the old 50's drawings of them.

Enjoy!

Characters - "Archie Comics"

Art - ~Porcelain-Requiem

All we need is Mega Man altering the current Archie timeline to restore the personalities back to the 40's-50's era...

I wish the Archie Comics would focus on this relationship a little bit more, they are so balanced for each other. This picture is awesome!

Nicely done! I prefer Betty with Juggie, but that's me.

And Jughead isn't an idiot; his intelligence is just below Dilton's but he doesn't work at it!

I did a valentine with Jughead . . . .

I just prefer this classic pair...

The classic pair is Archie with Betty and Archie with Veronica . . . . Reggie usually wound up with Veronica more often than Betty. And Reggie and Veronica are more equally matched, since Reggie's family has more money than Archie's does.

Nope... I'm talking old school.

Archie and Veronica were steady sweeties... and Betty and Reggie would try to foil the relationship, but would often times just stick together.

Sorry. I'm very old school here.

If you were very very VERY old school you'd have Archie with Betty, since she was his first girlfriend back in 1941. Veronica didn't come along till about half a year later.

It's a really cute picture though!

I used to read the comics back when I was a kid and have only recently been reading them again.

And I know Jughead and Betty were just friends, but I can wish . . . .

I really don't remember Betty and Reggies ever being in cahoots, but I do remember Ronnie and Reggie plotting against Archie and Betty getting together . . . .

I don't remember Ronnie and Reggie ever plotting to keep Archie and Betty from getting together, and I've read most of the old comics.

Yep, I know those too. So far, those reprints with Betty and Reggie haven't shown up in the digests I've gotten off eBaym but a lot of the old stories have been reprinted. Lots of Samm Schwartz stuff has appeared, though.

Oh, I love this! This made my day!

My favourites are Reggie and Betty too. They're polar opposites but I think that's why they work together :nod: The retro comics were fantastic, not so keen on the so called "realistic" ones now though...

And you now Jughead and Ethel will wind up together eventually >_>

Nice work! :cookie:

They're opposites now, but then, they were quite similar. :XD:

I love this Archie comics relationship!!! My dad got me hooked on the comics at a young age. You draw Reg and Bets very well. Haven's seen much Reg and Bets fan arts, though. Pity.
