ARCHIE ANDREWS IS GETTING MARRIED!
« on: May 15, 2009, 09:12:05 PM »
THIS AUGUST, PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE ARCHIE STORY YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU’D SEE, AS ARCHIE IS GETTING MARRIED

The eternal love triangle is the cornerstone of Archie Comics for over 65 years—and the bane of Archie Andrews' existence!  In fact, over the years it has not only defined the Betty/Archie/Veronica relationship, but has even threatened to dismantle it a time or 20.

In fact, we’ll even go so far as to call it the ARCHIE STORY OF THE CENTURY.  With a title like   “Archie Gets Married Part 1: The Proposal,” how could we call it anything else?!

Could it be true?  Has Archie finally decided to take the plunge and propose to one of comics’ favorite girls?  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 who would he choose Veronica or Betty?  How will Betty react?  How will Veronica react?  Can Archie shake off his klutzy past and hold down a steady job… for more than a month?  One thing is certain: this will be the biggest Archie Comics story ever! 

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!

What a great idea for a milestone issue!  It'll certainly get some mainstream coverage!

I'm interested where this is going...Archie obviously can't get married unless it was a fantasy sequence, or a story that takes place in the future.  And Archie can't walk down the aisle with either Betty or Veronica, because that would be seen as him finally choosing one or the other.

And as ACF27 alluded to, they've already done the Cheryl Blossom thing!  :)

Can't wait to read this!

It'll be a cold day in Hellsinki before I buy another Marvel comic. They have so jumped the shark inthe last 5 years that their line and characters are virtually unrecognizable...

Well....needless to say - I'm pretty excited about this story.  It's not going to be an easy one to pull off, but it's appropriate for this issue.

Obviously, this is a HUGE PR opportunity for Archie Comics!  The media is going to jump all over this one and I think we, as Archie fans can help!

Do what you can to talk this one up!
Get people reading Archie!
It's self-serving - more readers, more Archie books, more stories - we can help!

Rik is going to be a very busy boy!

Some things I am going to do:

1) phone local comic shops and ask if they are taking reservations on the Archie proposal issue.  If they say "no" then I'll say "thanks - I have to find one!".  If they say "yes" then say "cool! I just need to figure out how many I want"   :)  

2) check-out facebook and other social sites.  Post comments.  More comments, more buzz.

3) save Betty & Veronica Spectacular  :)   You KNEW I was going to add that.  Seriously though - this title needs to be available to help the buzz and project the image that Archie Comics aren't just the same-old/same-old.  They are new and exciting!

I'm excited to see who it is.  I'm even more excited to discuss how much I love/hate the decision.

No matter where I go, there I am.  Creepy.

We should be placing bets as to who Mrs. Archie will be.

The cynic in me thinks there's NO WAY ArchieCo would have Archie choose between BnV, and Cheryl's already been done. So I'm guessing it'll be someone out of the blue. Outside longshot bets then:

1.Ethel based on their one great date together (Riverdale High #8)

2.Josie of Josie and the Pussycats, cause they have so much in common

3.Sabrina, 'cause she could help him more than Veronica or Betty could-- kind of like the Riverdale version of 'Bewitched'

4.Melody just cause that could be lots of fun

I thought about Marcy, Bridgette, Ginger, Nancy, Valerie and Maria -- each discounted for reason or another.

thoughts, all?

Suzy Stringbean will be reintroduced as the new Mrs. Archie Andrews!!! ... or some random character we've never seen before with an odd back story about how the proposal came about - I hope it doesn't turn out to just be a play or something... I remember an old story where Betty had a bunch of frat pins, and another where she accidentally got a ring stuck on her finger while in a shop - both were cute stories, but, I'm definitely hoping for some fresh angle with this and am really looking forward to it! :)

My bet is that it will be a story in which the teen-agers get upset at the parents trying to control their lives, they come-up with a scheme to "get back" at the parents by showing they are "adults" and not just little kids (with plenty of inside jokes referring the fact that the series is 75 years old).

They "stage" a proposal in order to show the parents that they are older than their parents give them credit for.

Then... option #2 :)

Archie/Betty or Archie/Veronica are cleaning-up an attic and looking back at all the old times they and their parents had (tying back to the series history, of course).  They find an old trunk with wedding photos and even the ring of Archie's great or grandparents.  Archie then fake "proposes" to (and, I'm thinking Betty here).  The gang gets wind of this and freaks out - especially Veronica. There are all sorts of back-and-forth comedic and serious moments - again reliving the series history.

In the end, they realize they are too young for the responsibilities of marriage and it's all resolved with Archie, Betty and Veronica sharing a soda at Pop Tates (and the original art being sent to some lucky, obsessed fan that guessed right!!!!)

Good call - that's likely.  It may be that Archie is the best man or a groomsman.
Maybe it'll be Reggie getting married and they will have the character leave the gang!  I hope not!

Second, this will be a six-issue mini series, I'm assuming it will be made into a trade paperback.

Third, I've heard some rumors/spoilers that explains the 6 issues. I won't mention it here, but if you have to know, send me a PM and I'll give up what I've got so far.

Can't decide if I'm pleased or annoyed, assuming the rumors are true....

me too, maybe a bit indifferent about it 'cause i know archie won't get married (unless it's a dream or stuck in a misunderstanding situation). the whole thing is a hype like the whole love showdown... but we'll see.

(DAMN NOT HAVING A WORKING COMPUTER AT HOME TO KEEP UP WITH ARCHIE NEWS!)

It was all over msn.com, so all I can say is...I don't know. :P

Archie is going to marry an arrogant, spoiled little princess-type Barbie doll who SUCKS every single penny out of his moth-filled wallet EVEN though she herself is LOADED! The poor boy might as well marry Paris Hilton; his fate will be the same. ::)

Betty is obviously a BETTER choice for Archie, who unfortunately doesn't feel the same way for her (in fact, many, many older stories show Archie and Betty as happily married couple with a whole bunch of playing look-alike kids at their feet, BTW. That even happened in Little Archie, too!)

Even worse, poor Archie is going to stay a teenager until the end of the times, so his eternal IMMATURITY will stop him from seeing what a nice person Betty really is and instead make him only see the ravishing beauty that self-centered Veronica is.

So well...Archie is better off divorced and dumped in the poorhouse to be rescued by sweet-natured Betty who would then MARRY him than Archie marrying Betty and then having affairs with Veronica behind her back. ::)

true dat! i was actually yelling to my computer screen hearing him saying that, "shut up, learn how to fix your own car!"

and yet archie never actually sees betty as an equal or as girlfriend, beside someone who can fix his car....for FREE. i just hope when archie is gonna propose (either betty or veronica), i hope she'd say NO.

lol, you guys are funny

i really doubt this is the end of the love triangle.  and even if it is the end, I really doubt he would pick veronica.  i mean, if archie were a real guy it's possible he would pick veronica because she's hot, he likes her more than betty, he's stupid, and she likes him.  but I can't see the archie people being that cruel to betty.  there's a twist, i'm sure.

a few ideas of what it could be:

he's practicing proposing to betty and veronica is helping him.  this could be why he's actually proposing in the ring shop, and not some where else more romantic.  or veronica is helping him pick out the ring for betty and is saying yes to the ring.   thus, it's a big misunderstanding.  of course, veronica would have to be over him at this point. i'm  not sure if this would make 6 issues worth.  maybe veronica is helping him pick out HER OWN ring for that wedding. I wouldn't be surprised.

he'll change his mind at the end and go for Betty.  that would be completely wrong of him and of betty if betty says yes.

both mutually decide they're not the one for eachother or not ready.  Archie ends up going for betty.  hopefully not too soon after but like 3 years later. or if he doesn't go for betty the love triangle continues (which would just be wrong, considering two of the three were engaged, but I wouldn't put it past these crazy kids).  apparently there is supposed to be a wedding though.  I imagine it will either be moose and midge or jughead and a hamburger.  I mean, come on!  it had to happen sometime!

last scenario:  it's a dream.  this could end with either him picking betty after he wakes up and realizes she's the one for him, or he realizes he's not ready to marry...and the love triangle ensues.  my money's on this one, actually.

i don't really want betty to end up with Archie. mostly because she's so into him but he keeps her on a string.  he likes veronica a lot more, he goes crawling to betty because he knows he always has a date if he needs one.  well, that's my opinion.  I admit, though he hasn't been as bad lately, he doesn’t ignore her as much as in the older comics.  I've been feeling the archie/betty vibes strongly lately.  I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up in a twist and he really ends up with betty. (and darn it! i really do want betty/reggie! but I pretty much know it won't happen).

 i'm still more inclined to think the wedding won't happen at all and the triangle will still continue.  I just can't see it ending.  I'd actually be disappointed either way, actually.  the triangle is the bloodline of this comic.  and i'd feel sorry for betty if he picks Ronnie, or even vice versa.  besides, if archie does get married to one of them, but they continue to do comics with them as teens stuck in a love triangle...the love triangle will lose it's luster.  another one of the reasons I don't want him to marry either...could it signify the end of archie comics?

but I could be wrong.  maybe the doof will pick veronica.  but that would be comic suicide.  (at least it would open the door for betty/reggie)

if this were real life, I think betty should get over him.  I think she should learn that she shouldn’t chase after a boy who strings her along.  However, an engagement would be too cruel of a lesson.  And a part of me wants Betty to win, since I like her better.  And another part of me knows it should be archie/betty.  I just prefer her with Reg.

I disagree. The love triangle is not the "bloodline" of Archie Comics. It's the venom that's infecting the bloodline. Seriously, I roll my eyes whenever I come across a love triangle story. Betty, Veronica, and Cheryl should all just get over Archie. There are plenty of other story ideas that can be used to keep the series going.

He also really loves Betty.  Just in a different way.

Archie comics are always going to be family friendly and stay pretty "tame".  However, there are different types of men and women in the world.  Most are a mix of nice and bad together.  We all have our faults and things that also make us nice.

So - what "attracts" us to one or another "type"?  I think that we look for the balance and Betty represents what we think of as nice, while Veronica trends towards the nasty. 

Archie really loves both of them.

So, if there was a Beronica or a Vetty in town - Archie would be set!

(Cheryl represents a completely different type of girl - but let's keep it "PG" here :)

i think archie is kind of a butthead if he loves them both.  (and the girls are silly for letting him get away with it) and if he really loved them both he would pick one and let the other go free.  and yet, I still kinda want the love triangle.  i'm confused!

and actually, I don't think veronica is a bad person. and actually I admire the fact that veronica likes him and not someone hotter, richer, and cooler.  (of course it could just be because she has him wrapped around her finger)  but I think betty is nicer.  i'd rather if one of them had to have their heart broken that it would be veronica.  and I'd rather betty leave archie, then archie leave betty. 

anyway, I do admit that i'm very interested in reading this.

Okay, the idea that I had read was that there will be two weddings.  One for Veronica and one for Betty.  Now having both girls get weddings is a good decision because that way everybody wins and you keep the question of who he ultimately chooses up in the air, and of course you make fools of every major media outlet who excitedly said Archie was getting marries. Down side of course is that you get two some what similar story lines and if its ever decided to carry on stories after the weddings you need to create two separate stories again.

Archie is in college and finally decides he loves Betty - but, he can't afford to marry her.  He didn't do great in college and he sees years of financial strife ahead.

So.... he confesses this to Betty and they come up with a plan.   He will marry Veronica, then slowly drive her crazy with his clumsiness.  Veronica, once getting what she wants doesn't want it anymore - it's her thing.

She divorces Archie, and ends-up having to pay alimony, which Archie uses when he moves in with Betty and starts a family.

Here's info about Issue 602...

http://archie-blogs.archiecomics.com/archie_news/

very interesting.  why are they getting married in the 2nd issue?  is it really going to be him imagining marrying one and then the other?  or are we going to see their married life? 

also, what's with the way reggie is standing.  it looks like he's grabbing for something?  flowers?  maybe he's picking them for betty. hahaha

and "surprise ending that will leave you speechless"?  interesting.
