This series projects a future where the characters were allowed to grow up, and offers two alternate universes for readers – one in which he marries Veronica, and one in which he marries Betty. Whilst the circumstances of his death are set to be the same in both these realities, one story will focus on the impact it has on Betty, whilst the other will see what things change for Veronica.
The story will also mark the final issue of the Life with Archie series as well, with issues 36 and 37 devoted to telling the story of his death. He’ll die heroically, we’re told. Paul Kupperberg will write the story, and a whole heap of
celebratory I mean commemorative variant covers will be offered.
See below for covers from Francesco Francavilla, Fiona Staples, Mike Allred, Ramon Perez, Cliff Chiang, Jill Thompson and Tommy Lee Edwards
