LOS ANGELES - Famous freckle-face comic book icon, Archie Andrews, will see his final moments in this week's issue but will live on in other incarnations in other Archie Comic series. Readers will see their beloved and inspirational Archie die, as he takes a bullet for the attempted assassination of his best friend, Kevin Keller, the series' openly gay character.
Archie's death was first announced in April and will conclude the series "Life with Archie," focused on grown-up renditions of Archie and his Riverdale friends. Archie dies like you would expect, heroically and selflessly, Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO said.
