If you are not a fan of fatal news, especially when it comes to fictional characters, this article is not for you. Archie Andrews, who was brought to life by John L. Goldwater in 1941is set to die in July. “Life With Archie” #36 hits stores on July 16th and tells the story of how Archie dies; naturally, in the most heroic way possible, he sacrifices himself for a friend. This is an ending that may shock fans, but as Goldwater stated, “I think it’s the natural conclusion to the “Life With Archie” series. “Most fans are familiar with Archie as a highschooler, hanging out at Pop’s Chocklit Shop with his friends, ‘Life With Archie’ shows what happens when Archie becomes an adult and starts dealing with grownup issues.” “Archie died as he lived- heroically. He dies saving the life of a friend, and he does it in his usual selfless way. Archie has always been a representation of us- the best of us. Our strength and our faults.”Goldwater said. Little details are known, but  issue #37 has been confirmed to be the end off the series. Paul Kupperberg, the writer of the comic stated, “This isn’t a random, ‘one-off’ or ‘what-if’ story that we are doing as a gag. This is a true story that we mapped out carefully and with much thought.” Whether you’re a comic book fanatic or simply come across one in a bookstore, Archie is a name you are bound to know. Archie may die, but he is an icon that will live on for many generations to come!
