Quote the Day | Archie’s death as metaphor


Life With Archie presents a possible future for the character, and this issue is a fitting end to that story. Archie dies as he lived – a hero, representing the best in all of us. The fact that he’s saving Kevin, the most important new character in Archie lore since Archie, Betty & Veronica, Jughead and Reggie – is a metaphor for the rebirth this company has experienced over the last five years. This is truly a new Archie Comics: unafraid, daring, progressive and on the cusp of greatness.”

— Archie Comics Co-CEO Jon Goldwater, in a statement about Life With Archie #36, in which Archie Andrews sacrifices himself to save Kevin Keller, the openly gay military veteran newly elected to the U.S. Senate on a gun-control platform



“Don’t shoot my dick!” -Archie

I guess Chuck is just chopped liver?

Kudos for them on bringing in Kevin Keller but I can’t but feel severely underwhelmed that their idea of daring and progressive is going grimdark like every other company in the industry. “Dark Circle Comics” really guys? Really?

I will say that Archie has a dope outfit in that panel
