Final ‘Life with Archie’ Comic to Feature the Death of Archie Andrews

Life with ArchieArchie Comics has announced that protagonist Archie Andrews will die in the final installment of the Life with Archie series.

A release date for this double commemorative issue has been scheduled for July 2014. In issue #36, readers will learn how Archie sacrifices himself to save a friend’s life. In issue #37, the story will detail how the Riverdale gang reacts to this tragic turn of events.

Publisher Jon Goldwater had this statement in the press release: “We’ve been building up to this moment since we launched Life with Archie five years ago, and knew that any book that was telling the story of Archie’s life as an adult had to also show his final moment. Archie has and always will represent the best in all of us—he’s a hero, good-hearted, humble and inherently honorable. This story is going to inspire a wide range of reactions because we all feel so close to Archie.”
