    He's getting the gritty "realism" treatment. :coffee:

    ...."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," publisher Jon Goldwater said in a statement.

    Archie will die in issue Number 36, which is set for release this July. The subsequent installment will jump ahead a year and examine how Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Reggie have dealt with the death of their friend. Archie has been a comic-book fixture since his introduction in Pep Comics in 1941.

    ...Though tragic, tackling Archie's death is fitting for the comic series, which in recent years has dealt with more contemporary and mature issues, like introducing its first gay character in 2010. Last month Archie Comics' Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tapped Girls star/writer/creator and Archie fan, Lena Dunham, to pen a four-oart storythat will be published in 2015. Though he wouldn't divulge plot details, Aguirre-Sacasa said the story is "very contemporary" and set in the Archie continuity, adding, "It's a classic Archie story, with a definitely unique, Lena spin."

    A mass shooting? Is gun control going to be the next cultural issue shoved into a comic that nobody actually reads?

    Hopefully it's a suicide note.

    I've never see her show or saw her interviewed. All I know about her is that she's fucking hideous.

    Is that a hipster thing? Pretended to be a fan of Archie comics?

    At any point does Archie disrobe and eat a cake while on the shitter?

    When I was 3 years old, I was taught how to read using Archie comics. I hate when they do this to classic characters. No need to force "realism" on a completely escapist comic character.

    Jughead Jones wants Archie's privates. No one will stop him from getting that ginger penis. It's on.

    I have an Archie comic that is a spoof of Howard Stern, they call him Howie Stein, they even have his wig removed in the last scene. I'll see if I can scan it and upload it.

    Looks like a shooting in a club or at a school-dance or something.

    Good for them for tackling the tough-issues. I'm sure they'll give it a delicate treatment.

    Archie comics are more homo now than they've ever been. And that's saying something.
