Anticipation has already begun to build at Avondale Estates comic book store and taproom My Parents’ Basement for their upcoming signing with Betty and Veronica writer and artist Adam Hughes, along with variant cover artist Andy Price, happening July 29. (Those in the comic book scene may recognize Price’s name as the artist behind the My Little Pony comic as well.)

The famed ongoing comic series from Archie Comics revolves around frenemies Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge who reductively complete for the affections of a freckly ginger named Archie. During the first hour of the two-hour event, guests are invited to snag a copy of the comic, and can also bring along up to four other comic book copies to be signed. For the second hour, Hughes and Price will be creating personalized sketches from blank sketch covers for $40 a pop.

“We are super excited for the event because it’s a big deal to have Adam Hughes doing a signing in general,” MPB owner and beer manager Timothy Ensor says. “The fact that he wanted to do it at our shop is super rad, especially since we are not even a year old — it’s big for us.”

??Free. 6-8 p.m. Fri., July 29. My Parents’ Basement, 22 N. Avondale Road. 404-292-4607.
