DeCarlo Rules: I think you can take it as a given that there's no happy ending to Afterlife With Archie, and there's no real conclusion short of "everyone dies". The good guys do not win.; there is no cure for zombies.

DeCarlo Rules:  I couldn't help notice that ACP seems to be focusing on Classic Archie again, now that they're reduced to nothing but the ongoing digests and one-shots.

DeCarlo Rules: @Hanna Barbera Montana -- Not by Roberto Aguirre Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla, I think... and what would be the point of someone else continuing it?

DeCarlo Rules: @Tuxedo Mark  - Everything's Archie" is just the first 80th Anniversary one-shot. I assume the others will follow suit by using other old classic titles. Maybe we'll see one-shots for Pep, Laugh, or Life With Archie.

Archie Wedding/Married Life compilations

I am looking for the complete storylines for Archie's wedding and married life. I've looked around and read descriptions, but I'm still a bit confused about this.

"The Archie Wedding: Archie in Will You Marry Me?" Is this a compilation of the full wedding storyline?

The "Archie Marries..." collection (ISBN 9780810996205). Is this separate from the wedding storyline, or is it another version of the book from above? Is it a compilation of the Married Life stories? If not, is there a compilation of the Married Life storylines, or would I have to buy seven separate books to get it all?

Is the Married Life 10th Anniversary new storylines or just new art? I'm assuming it's all new. Is there a compilation of these stories in one volume?

Thank you for any clarification.

I don't know if this helps, but the "Will You Marry Me" is supposed to be about Archie being given two separate visions of what his life will be like in the future married to either Betty or Veronica. At the end, he is once again a teenager. And that's all in that one book.                 "Life With Archie: The Married Life", which had more realistic storylines, time wise, took place after the weddings and before the babies come. These stories are a variation and not a direct continuation of the "Will You Marry Me" stories. There could be a box set of all seven books available now. I bought them separately.
"The Married Life 10th Anniversary" is a direct continuation of the "Will You Marry Me" storyline with a couple elements of the "Life With Archie" in there as well. They are all new storylines and I didn't see anywhere these have been put into one volume. All these "married" stories are fun to read and I hope we get more of them being made.

To answer Pennylane's question about the small-sized trade paperback vs. the deluxe slipcased hardcover...


These two books both collect the same original story that began in ARCHIE 600...
But ironically, the cheaper paperback is the more complete version!
Both collect ARCHIE 600-602 ("Archie Marries Veronica") and ARCHIE 603-605 ("Archie Marries Betty"), but...
There was an Epilogue to BOTH parallel timelines in ARCHIE 606, and that issue is ONLY reprinted in the small TP collection "Will You Marry Me?", not in the expensive hardcover!


And yes, as mentioned by Beatman10, the confusingly-titled Archie: The Married Life 10th Anniversary is a sequel to ARCHIE MARRIES... and was published 10 years after that storyline from ARCHIE 600-606. Why it is confusing is that it was NOT the 10th Anniversary of "THE MARRIED LIFE" -- which was an earlier sequel that ran in LIFE WITH ARCHIE MAGAZINE from 2010-2014 (and was later collected in six thick trade paperbacks).

The above book is a DIFFERENT sequel, which (again, as previously mentioned by Beatman10) picks up again after ARCHIE 600-605, ignoring the events of the earlier sequel "The Married Life". The above image is from the cover of the TP collection of that six-issue miniseries.

Hope that clears up everything.

I read an interview with "Will You Marry Me" writer Michael Uslan that said ACP initially announced coming out with the "Archie Marries Veronica" story only. And that caused an uproar from many fans who felt Archie picked the wrong girl. Of course, that was done for publicity. I'm sure everyone on this forum has their opinions on which girl is better for Archie, which storyline is better or more believable; the other character pairings, etc.
Next item I'm getting is the Jughead Time Police collection.

Thank you. These responses have been really helpful. I think I've been able to make sense of some complicated, confusing, and overlapping titles, and the books are on the way in the mail.
