Back in April, Archie Comics broke the news to the world that they will be killing off their titular character, Archie Andrews, in the final issues of their Life With Archie series, which follows the lives of the Riverdale gang after college. What they should have said was that they were destroying our childhood forever. But we digress.
All we knew about Archie's death was that he would die "saving the life of a friend," and, based on the cover, it would be a very public incident. And now we know exactly how Archie, who has been around since 1941, will meet his demise in the issue, in stores on July 16.
