I was never a huge comic book fan, but I did love Archie comics when I was a kid. Jughead’s goofiness, Reggie’s vanity, and the love triangle between Archie, Veronica, and Betty created endless drama in issue after issue.
For issue #600, which comes out in the coming weeks, Archie finally takes the plunge. Apparently he’s making his choice, and it is NOT the girl next door. A comic book store owner in New Jersey, Dave Luebke, is taking a drastic action to protest the upcoming nuptials of Archie and Veronica: he plans to sell his Archie Comics No 1 (estimated value: $30,000).
The Editor-in-Chief of Archie Comics is being tight-lipped about how this particular story arc turns out, so it’s still possible this is just a dream sequence or something. If not, it’s clearly the wedding of the century! All I can say is, say it ain’t so! I always thought Archie would choose Betty!
Are you a fan of Archie and the gang? What do you think of his choice? Do you think it’s for keeps, or is it just in someone’s imagination?
Oh you’re from Maine. Just like Stephen King.
Yep, it’s true! Did you know Patrick “McDreamy” Dempsey is also from Maine, and Liv Tyler grew up here? And everyone who’s anyone is getting married here this summer (including Ali Larter and Kara DioGuardi). Betcha didn’t know Maine was such a happenin’ place! :0)
