It's Veronica...

Seems like Archie has finally, after 65 years, made his choice.

Archie Comics to mark milestone; Archie to propose to Veronica

By THE CANADIAN PRESS – 2 hours ago

One of the longest running love triangles may be about to come to an end.

Comicbook legend Archie Andrews is going to propose to Veronica later this year, according to Archie Comics' official website. It's promoting the release of Archie issue number 600, due to go on sale Sept. 8. The website tells fans to prepare themselves for the Archie story they thought they'd never see.

The competition between Veronica and Betty for Archie's attention has been the cornerstone of Archie Comics for 65 years.

The Archie website is calling it the "the Archie Story of the Century."

The website shows an image of the issue with a blue suited Archie on one knee in front of a beaming Veronica with a caption that reads "yes."

Betty is teary-eyed and pal Jughead looks stunned.

One comment posted on the website indicated that Archie is marrying the wrong girl.

"Personally I think he should marry Betty," a person named Kelly posted.

"She is cuter, more down to earth and not as flighty as Veronica."

Are the black eyes supposed to tell us that Archie likes rough sex?

Well, of course Archie should marry Veronica -- the chick's an heiress!

Betty can be his bit on the side.

Crikey! I used to read the Archie comics as a kid! Why couldn't Archie forego marriage and instead opt for having BOTH Betty *AND* Veronica?!

The big wedding day is coming up! I still say he should have chosen Betty.

Archie wedding bells make comic-book history

By Sarah McLellan, Edmonton Journal August 19, 2009

Archie settles his 70-year love triangle by choosing Veronica.

Archie is hearing wedding bells after 67 years, and some fans are second guessing his choice in bride.

In the first instalment of a six-part series, Archie proposes to Veronica in a comic to be released Wednesday at comic specialty shops, and hits newsstands Sept. 1.

"There's very few things that I can ever think of that will trump this type of event," said Jay Bardyla, owner of Happy Harbor Comics in Edmonton, which will host a celebration Wednesday to mark the occasion. "Especially something that's of characters that are known by so many people."
Bardyla believes the proposal is one of the most significant moments in pop culture history.

Because Archie has been a constant since he first appeared in Pep Comics in 1941, the marriage announcement eclipses events like the deaths of Captain America and Batman that are huge "within our little geeky comic-book collective," Bardyla said.

"This transcends the few hundred thousand in North America that buy comics. This touches anyone and everyone."

Bardyla likened Archie to comfort food because it maintains its wholesome, entertaining nature for each generation to relish.

"There's certainly something to be said for the stability of the institution of Archie," he said. "I don't think it'll ever kind of go away."
Tim Lasiuta, a comic book historian based in Red Deer, called the marriage "a bold step" to create a buzz among traditional and non-traditional Archie fans.

After chairman and publisher Michael Silberkleit died last year, Lasiuta said the comic ushered in new themes and concepts, depicting the characters more realistically, and Veronica fell for a new bad boy in town, Nick St. Clair.

"They're not changing the characters," Lasiuta said. "They're just adding a little bit of edge to them."

Fast-forwarding the story five years to post-college and orchestrating a wedding is in tune with that concept, Lasiuta said, and characteristic in an industry where sales are down.

The marriage "opens up a lot of doors that they didn't have before." Like a second generation of Riverdale kids.

The covers of the second and third issues of the series have already been released with one showing Archie and Veronica at the altar and the following one depicts the couple, with two children, celebrating Christmas.
Bardyla doesn't anticipate a divorce in Archie's future, but isn't ruling out the possibility he ends up with Betty.

"You're looking at a girl who can play basketball, bake you a pie and fix your car, probably all at the same time," he said. "She's just ridiculously talented."

Thirty-seven-year-old Marc Desgagne of Edmonton is a longtime fan and said he could not have predicted the storyline for issue 600.

"To be honest, it would have been Betty for me, because she was more down to earth compared to Veronica," Desgagne said.

But the apparent resolution to the love triangle between the gang from Riverdale hasn't upset him. He vows to continue purchasing the comics. Desgagne has collected more than 10,000 Archie comics and a handful of related memorabilia worth at least $35,000. It's the storylines that keep him a fan.

"At first, they were always different," Desgagne said, who reads a comic once, usually during breakfast and supper, before slipping it in a plastic cover. "They were always humorous. At the end, they'd have a point. Sometimes they'd have a moral."

Desgagne said that a happy ending with Betty could still be cooked up. Perhaps the union with Veronica is an attempt to ensure security in tough economic times, he said.

That kinda contradicts the wholesomeness.
