I guess half of you were right when you picked Veronica in Archie’s ball and chain dilemma.  Archie Comics announced today, that the ginger haired high-schooler has popped the question of the brunette socialite. Is it a new direction for Archie Comics, or is this all going to end in a horrible dream sequence six months from now?

I can understand Betty being upset, but why does Jughead look so distressed?

The hijinx begin in Archie #600 arriving in August, 2009.

Could it be true?  Has Archie finally decided to take the plunge and propose to comics’ favorite rich girl?  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 why would he choose Veronica over Betty?  How will Betty react?  Can Archie shake off his klutzy past and hold down a steady job… for more than a month?  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!”

  1. jughead is gay?

    of course not, he’s loosing his best friend to a witch.

    this is gonna be my first archie purchase in years.

  2. No way Ronnie says “Yes!” like that to a “rock” that size. She gets diamonds bigger than that in her breakfast cereal. More to it than meets the eye, methinks…

  3. @hermit, looks like you’ll be on the hook for 6 issues.

    It’s been a long time since I read Archie, I thought they were in High School. Are they in college? Or have they graduated? Archie has always seemed to be the same perpetual age, like Charlie Brown (or Batman/Superman/All other comic characters).

  4. The reason for Jughead’s distress can be found in just about any piece of Archie ‘slash ever made…
