This really should come as no surprise, as anyone who read the first issue of the Archie marries Veronica, that the whole story line was a big ol’ What If? story.  In fact in one panel, it was clearly shown that Archie took the left fork in the road up Memory Lane, and said he might have to see where the right fork would lead at a later time.

Well that time is Archie #603 that features Archie marrying Betty Cooper, and seeing how life would look like down that other path.  Those of you who were upset that Archie chose Veronica, now get their voices heard in the upcoming issue.

    The books are selling like hotcakes at our store despite the god awful art. I’m sorry, but could Archie Comics not find a better artist on these books considering what a big event it is?

    Here’s how it should have gone down: the girls get sick of Archie’s crap and realize their fighting over him was really about THEMSELVES. After Archie proposes to Veronica she realizes he’s only after her money since in this economy no one is going to hire an idiot and also, women don’t want to take care of guys, they want guys to take care of them, SO she turns him down, calls Betty over, they confess they’ve been dating in secret and the story ends with a one panel scene of the hottest lesbian kiss in comic history with an epilogue showing Archie hanging himself.
