Here’s the Archie Comics cover art with Betty Cooper holding a gun that was announced but later canceled

Earlier this year, the official Archie Comics website posted this cover artwork for the upcoming Betty and Veronica Comics Double Digest 253:

However, when the title eventually got released, the cover had this other artwork instead:

The fact that the first cover says “comics double digest” while the second one says “summer annual” does not mean that these are different titles.  The official title is “Betty and Veronica Comics Double Digest.” The words “summer annual” simply indicate that this issue has a few dozen extra pages in it – it’s still the same title. So I’m not getting one title confused with another.

Anyway, it’s sad that the powers that be canceled the release of the cover artwork with Betty Cooper holding a gun.
