Goodbye Archie Andrews!

Nobody dies better than the heroes, sort of. Nobody appreciates you until you are dead. done. deceased. game over. The employees of Archie comics has made a bold decision to kill their hero. Why? Because they just don’t give a shit probably. You can cry all you want. You can beg them to stop it, but they wont.

Archie Andrews dies a tragic, heroic death in this July’s Life With Archie #36. This is what the company had to say about it:

” The iconic comic book character, beloved by millions around the globe for over 70 years, will sacrifice himself heroically while saving the life of a friend in the pages of July’s LIFE WITH ARCHIE #36, the final issue in the flash-forward series, which spotlights Archie’s adventures after high school and college.”

Life With Archie ran from 1958-1991 and featured longer stories than the other series featuring the happy-go-lucky redhead. The current volume of Life With Archie started in 2010, with the hook that it would focus on two versions of Archie’s life as an adult, one where he marries Betty and the other where he’s Veronica’s husband. So, this flash-forward title isn’t the main Archie book.
