Media Release — The eternal love triangle is the cornerstone of Archie Comics for over 65 years—and the bane of Archie Andrews’ existence! In fact, over the years it has not only defined the Betty/Archie/Veronica relationship, but has even threatened to dismantle it a time or 20.
In fact, we’ll even go so far as to call it the ARCHIE STORY OF THE CENTURY. With a title like “Archie Gets Married Part 1: The Proposal,” how could we call it anything else?!
Could it be true? Has Archie finally decided to take the plunge and propose to one of comics’ favorite girls? It sure looks that way! Earlier this year readers got a chance to relive “Freshman Year” with the famous teens of Riverdale High. Now make way for this special story that takes a look at Archie and his friends after they graduate college! What careers will they seek? Will the friends stay in Riverdale or disperse? What would lead Archie to have marriage on his mind? And who would he choose Veronica or Betty? How will Betty react? How will Veronica react? Can Archie shake off his klutzy past and hold down a steady job… for more than a month? One thing is certain: this will be the biggest Archie Comics story ever!
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! The Archie story of the century begins here… don’t miss it!
