What?!?! Archie Is Going To Be Shot Dead This July?! NOOOOOO

Posted on: April 8, 2014

Say it ain’t so!!! Archie is going to be shot dead this july. Yeah, That Archie. 😦

ArchieandrwcmcThe lives of Archie Andrews and his friends at Riverdale have been followed closely by comic book fans since 1941, but it looks like this summer –our favorite red head will die…

Life With Archie is a brilliant “flash-forward” series exploring the character’s life after high school and college. Adults like myself love this series because the Riverdale crew had to grow up, get jobs, and deal with life — just like us! And, just like us, at some point, Archie’s life has to come to an end.

Archie will die in July’s Life with Archie #36. How?! Like a hero… Archie will sacrifice himself while saving the life of a friend.

We’ve been building up to this moment since we launched LIFE WITH ARCHIE five years ago, and knew that any book that was telling the story of Archie’s life as an adult had to also show his final moment,” said Archie Comics Publisher/Co-CEO Jon Goldwater.

That will not be the end of the series though. There will be one more issue, #37, where we will jump forward a year and look at how the rest of the Riverdale crew — including his love interests Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge, best friend Jughead Jones and friend/nemesis Reggie Mantle — are dealing with his death.

I am so sad about this!
