Archie Comics Reimagined as a Prision Drama

Cartoonist Mike Hawthorne made this scene from a different sort of Archieverse -- one in which Archie Andrews and his gang are doing hard time. Here's a passage from Hawthorne's backstory for the comic:

Teen age pregnancy caused Archie's life to start to slide into the wrong direction. Veronica, coming from a wealthy family, was pressured into an abortion. Betty gave birth to Archie Junior. Archie would have to skip college, and take menial jobs to get by. Reggie would rub it in every chance he got, which would lead to a fight with Reggie. Archie would end up killing him in the process.

Jughead, not being able to bare the idea of his friend going to jail, tries to help Archie hide the body. When they're finally caught, both were given long jail sentences for Reggie's murder. In prison Jughead and Archie would expand on their volatile relationship.
