Quote:
Since 1941, comic book fans have followed the exploits of teenaged Archie Andrews and his friends. This July, they'll find out how he dies.

"Life With Archie" #36 hits stores on July 16, and CNN can reveal exclusively that it tells the story of how Archie sacrifices himself to save a friend.

Few details are known, but it seems fitting that Archie would go out a hero. The 37th issue one week later will end the series.

I used to read the Archie comic books as a kid. The big question at school among the boys was "Betty or Veronica?"

I had the answer - both, of course. Ladies?

Batman issue #428 was the issue where Robin dies. I remember my bookstore owner friend making a fortune off it because he had quite a few copies before anyone else did.
I don't know if this gambit will work as well for Archie or not. Not a comic book expert!

But of course Robin came back to life and I suspect so will Archie...somehow!

When I was in 5th grade it was: Kelly, Sabrina, or Jill for the other boys in my class; for me, it was the Lifeguard

I confess I always found Archie a bit lame. (Even at age 10.) It made no sense that both of those hotties would be fixated on Archie. Reggie was rich and Moose was a football player: In the real world, those two would have girlfriends and nobodies like Archie and Jughead would have to satisfy their curiosity about girls by passing around pilfered copies of Playboy magazine.

Now some of the spinoffs and parodies were MUCH more interesting! For example, Cherry Poptart was a distinctly-adult comic set in a Riverdale-like community a decade or two post-Archie.
