Marriage Follows Engagement: Archie Gets Hitched in #601

Archie Gets Hitched in #601

Archie #601

Press Release

When we announced that Archie proposed to Veronica in last month’s milestone ARCHIE #600, the response was off the charts! Fans everywhere just had to weigh in on this latest threat to the eternal love triangle—the cornerstone of Archie Comics for over 65 years, and the bane of Archie Andrews’ existence! Not only has the love triangle defined the Betty/Archie/Veronica relationship through the years; it has even threatened to dismantle it a time or 20.

There hasn’t been a more talked-about, more publicized Archie Comics story since “The Love Showdown.” While that ‘90s epic had readers choosing sides over the notion that Archie Andrews may finally choose between Betty & Veronica once and for all, the resolution of that tantalizing tale provided a way for the status quo to return.

Until now!

Now, what many consider “the unthinkable” is about to happen: Archie is going to marry Veronica!

You can get off the floor now.

Yes, nearly 70 years of Archie Comics history is about to be turned on its head, and the past 15 years’ worth of love triangle status quo faces potentially permanent extinction, in a story that will rock the world of everyone in Riverdale and be sure to keep people talking for months on end! In fact, we’ll even go so far as to call it the Archie Story of the Century. With a title like “Archie Marries Veronica Part 2: The Wedding,” how could we call it anything else?!

This is the unforgettable epic that hurtles readers into Archie’s future… and it’s a future where Riverdale’s favorite rich girl wins his hand in marriage! With Mr. Lodge footing the bill, it’s proving to be the most spectacular wedding ever to hit Riverdale… and perhaps the country! The guys all look spiffy in their tuxes, and the girls are gorgeous in their gowns… but just who is Betty’s date, Henry? This emotionally-charged tale will tug at your heartstrings as you witness Archie’s poignant heart-to-heart talk with Betty before the nuptials, the choked-up parents of the betrothed, and a surprise ending that will leave you speechless!

Acclaimed superhero movie producer Michael Uslan draws upon his lifelong love of Archie comic books to write this very special tale, rendered by legendary Archie Comics artist Stan Goldberg! You are cordially invited to witness the Archie story of the century, so RSVP by ordering your copy today!
