Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and all of your favorite friends from the classic Archie comics will soon be meeting some Guido-esque characters in the upcoming Archie ‘Jersey Shore’ spinoff comic.

The ‘Archie & Friends: At the Riverdale Shore’ issue #145 will have the iconic characters meeting the "tanned and tattooed cast of the fictional reality hit ‘The Riverdale Shore,’" according to Archie and his friends apparently love The Riverdale Shore cast so much that they get some Guido-style makeovers themselves. For instance, Archie’s new gelled hair is inspired by Pauly D while Reggie gets a new name—‘The Complication’—as well as a new set of abs. Stats for Guidofied Comic Books Trending: Older & Mild
