Two things are certain: with the Lodges as hosts, this will be the biggest wedding Riverdale has ever seen… and the biggest Archie Comics story since the famous “Love Showdown!” 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!
