This ain’t your father’s Archie Andrews: a 50-year love triangle between Archie, Betty and Veronica has ended, as Archie and Veronica will tie the knot in the upcoming 601st edition of the long-running comic.
The comic’s writer, Michael E. Uslan, addressed an uproar amongst fans that erupted with the announcement, as many Archie loyalists were peeved the rich girl Veronica won out over the girl next door, Betty.
“I’m sure that people have a lot of questions about the choice that Archie made, and all I can do is tell them to pick up the comic,” Uslan said. “I guarantee that this story is not finished, and there are still some surprises left in the story to come.”
We’re pulling for Betty to catch the bouquet.
Archie Comics #601 hits comic book stores Sept. 16, and book stores and newsstands a week later.
