Archie Andrews Dies in Upcoming Life With Archie Comic Book
Posted on April 8, 2014
Archie Comics has announced that Archie Andrews will die in an upcoming Life With Archie comic book. The publisher says Archie will sacrifice himself heroically while saving the life of a friend in the pages of July's Life With Archie #36. #37 is the set a year in the future to show how remaining members of the Riverdale gang have honored Archie's legacy.
Archie Comics publisher and co-ceo Jon Goldwater says in a statement, "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. Archie has and always will represent the best in all of us - he's a hero, good-hearted, humble and inherently honorable. This story is going to inspire a wide range of reactions because we all feel so close to Archie. Fans will laugh, cry, jump off the edge of their seats and hopefully understand why this comic will go down as one of the most important moments in Archie's entire history. It's the biggest story we’ve ever done, and we're supremely proud of it."
