Cyndi wasn't designed to be important when I first drew her. She didn't even have a name in her first appearance. She was just a random character, so my subconscious probably went for a Veronica look. In any case, eventually, T decided to use this random character and she became useful. I couldn't really change her at that point. Stuff like this happens all the time. Sometimes, you just don't know how important someone will be. Even the 3 witches in EC were not supposed to be that important in their first arc. However, this time, I thought ahead and really gave them a look as if they'd be super important in the future. I planned wisely! ;)

Page 11, third panel.

Jughead's expression inspired by Dillon? :))

And I believe I've spotted a Matt wanna-be on page 10.

For a first time full edition Giz, you've done a beautiful job! I can't wait to see the improvements as you refine the looks of the individual characters!

Merci! :)

Their genders are reversed in Archie 636 (for at least 18 pages), so it's only in Archie 639 (which I'm working on now) where I get to drawn them again. I'm hoping to be more comfortable with them by the time I'm done with the issue.

Dillon inspired? Perhaps. lol
As for Matt, there's actually a new character in the Archieverse that looks a bit like Matt. He was introduced last year.
Just a coincidence.

I too love the page 11 Jughead, and more thought that a bit of Dillon look was more due to both (from time to time) going to certain manga/anime style facial tropes. I mean, Yuki and Kiley have both had those eyes at times...

More broadly, though, Juggie and the 'Bee were amazing. Jughead's slouching all through page 1, the self-assuredness of Weatherbee whenever we see him, awesome. Heck, all the body language throughout was great.

Funny, when I saw gender-swapped Veronica, I thought she/he looked like a black-haired Dillon!

Female Jughead has Yuki's hairstyle! :))

And the female Ace style is definitely making the rounds, both in the Mà3 Volume 4 bonus story, and in the Archie comic. :)

I wonder if any of the now female characters will experience "that time of the month?" Or is that a bit much for the Archie franchise? Gay? Okay. Menstruation? Still taboo?

I can see that, too.

I guess I thought Dillon first because...well... :x

Salem meets Lyta would be the ultimate crossover, now that I think about it.

Giz, do you think the American readers will object if your first name was spelled correctly i.e. it would include the "è"? :)

Or worse, also include your last name "Lagaçé"? :D

They might think you're Mexican! :))

Is it Archie foreshadowing that there is the hint of a female walking her cat in the last panel of Magick Chicks (after the battle)? :-bd
Would wholesale 'switcheroo' hit the magical monster community? Will we see fe(males) grow big bewbies?!?!?! 'New' males scratching their... backs? :D

Got to admit, I' m a sucker for a red headed cutie... if Archie was an Archette full time, I'd be suitably impressed. :-C
