HOLY SHIT, ARCHIE IS GETTING MARRIED!!
After 70 years of going back and forth between Betty and Veronica apparently Archie is finally going to propose to one of them in an upcoming issue. The Archie Comics folks are being super tight lipped as to when the issue will come out but it is a reality. I hate this idea, not because he chooses one but because they're growing Archie up. Archie is supposed to be a prepetual teenager. that's what makes him Archie. Having him grow up is a bad idea, it just doesn't work in the world they've created. Think I'm wrong about a grown up Archie sucking. Watch this, this is supposed to be Jughead as an adult:
The only bright spot is that artist Stan Goldberg will illustrate the tale. Mr. Goldberg was kind enough to send me this long ago.
