Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay best friend.
The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in Wednesdays installment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics first openly gay character. Andrews death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals. [ ]
We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to everyone, said [Jon] Goldwater, [Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO]. Thats how we came up with the storyline of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born.

In other news - there are still comic books being printed.
There aren’t enough words on how stupid this is.
Archie better hope that he doesn’t die face-down...
LOL! The comic book industry has gone to hell. I guess it’s only appropriate that you have to go to a comic book store to even find them these days.
Allahu Archie, Savior of Gays!
I remember when comic books were actually funny.
Guess I’m getting old.
In the demented minds of today's elite, this is what is "impactful."
LOLOL!! Glad I wasn’t drinking my coffee when I read that...
Killed no doubt, by some fanatical, Christian conservative, gun-toting tea party Freeper type. Just my guess. They haven’t said by whom.
Blood will be on their hands as kids will die trying to save their gay friends.
Decades ago, the Archie series was geared towards pre-teens, didn’t even mention sex, and revolved around Betty and Veronica’s rivalry for Archie.
So we have to have politically correct comics for kids??? Really???
First we had to introduce the homosexual character. Now Archie saves him, and it’s somehow a metaphor for saving and honoring the homosexual community by saving the homosexual character?
Is this indoctrination, pure and simple???
A more fitting end for Archie would have been for him to get shot in a carjacking by an illegal immigrant.
Please, make it stop!
Yeah, his “friend” might be tempted to stop by “for a cold one”...
I did a LOL on that one!
I was packing my house for a move the other day and came across the funny pages. There wasn’t anything even remotely funny in them.
