ARCHIE #600
IT’S THE MILESTONE 600th ISSUE AND WE’RE SERVING UP THE ARCHIE STORY OF THE CENTURY AS ARCHIE MARRIES VERONICA!!!
“Archie Marries Veronica Part 1: The Proposal”: 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!”  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!
