‘Archie: Betty Or Veronica’ Invites You To Rebuild Riverdale By Breaking At Least One Teenager’s Heart

Archie01

A few weeks back, we covered the announcement of Archie: Betty or Veronica, a new mobile game for iOS in which everyone's favorite crosshatch-haired teen was tasked with rebuilding his hometown, piece by piece and tap by tap. Last week, the game was finally released, and now, I've had some time to play around with it.

The verdict? It's definitely one of those mobile games where you send people off to do tasks for hours on end and then come back later when it's done unless you want to pay to speed things up... but it's also one that does a pretty great job of capturing what's great about Archie Comics.

Archie Debates Gun Control And Urban Crime In ‘Life With Archie’ #31 (Really)

LWA00

If you're like me, you've always wanted to see Archie and Jughead debate gun control.

Okay, now that I've actually typed that out, I'm willing to accept that, in this particular regard, none of you are actually like me at all and weren't actually hoping to see that. And yet, we live in a magical world where this is actually happening, in the pages of this week's Life With Archie #31. Check out a preview below of both the "Archie Marries Veronica" story (where Riverdale is caught in the grip of an urban crime wave and a collapsing economy) and the "Archie Marries Betty" universe (where dudes are gettin' shot all the time) -- plus an awesome variant cover by Stephanie Buscema!

Afterlife01

Because juggling two relationships wasn't enough a challenge, this fall Archie is taking on the undead. Launching in October is Afterlife With Archie, a new monthly series from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla about Archie, Betty, Veronica and the gang fighting off a zombie invasion in Riverdale.

Archie Comics will be showing a promotional trailer for the new series at a panel on Saturday, but The Hollywood Reporter debuted it today, and you can check it out below.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa Talks ‘Afterlife With Archie’: ‘Reggie Mantle Triggers The Zombie Apocalypse’ [Interview]

Afterlife01

Even with as strange as Archie Comics have gotten over the past few years, I don't think any of us ever expected to see an all-new ongoing series where Archie, Betty, Veronica and the rest of the gang had to contend with the apocalyptic rise of the undead. I know I didn't, and I'm pretty comfortable in saying that I think about Archie comics way more than the average person.

And yet, here we are: In October, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla are launching Afterlife With Archie, and I could not be more excited to see how young Mr. Andrews deals with trying to juggle two girlfriends and a ravenous horde of Zombies. I spoke with Aguirre-Sacasa to find out just what the tone would be, and why the whole thing is all Reggie's fault.

Archie Celebrates ‘Kevin Keller Day’ With ‘It Gets Better’ Video

KevinItGetsBetterTop

It's hard to believe that Kevin Keller, the first openly gay character in Archie Comics, debuted nearly three years ago. It simultaneously seems like the character first appeared yesterday, but it also kind of feels like he's always been around. Archie acknowledged the impact Kevin has made over the past 34 months by declaring July 9 "Kevin Keller Day" and releasing a video about his creation as part of the "It Gets Better" series.

Rebuild Riverdale In ‘Archie: Betty Or Veronica’ For iOS

archiebettyorveronicamain

I've been a pretty big fan of Archie Comics for quite a while now, but it's always bugged me that I've been relegated to the role of a passive observer. No matter how many comics I read, I can't warn Archie of the folly of making two dates at once, or encourage Jughead to maybe mix things up with a salad now and then. Now, however, that is all about to change, as the Archie: Betty or Veronica? game for iOS will give me absolute, godlike control of Riverdale itself!

Dean Haspiel Brings ‘The New Yorker’ To Riverdale With ‘Life With Archie’ #32

lwaheader

Over the past few years, Archie Comics has gotten into the variant cover game, and they're doing it better than just about anyone else in comics. The results have been great pieces that we never would've expected to see ten years ago, including stuff like Francesco Francavilla doing zombie-inspired "Afterlife With Archie" covers that led to him actually drawing their upcoming zombie book. Truly, we live in strange times.

Sonic And Mega Man’s Robot Fighting Team-Up Continues In ‘Mega Man’ #26 [Preview]

mega26-0vmain

As two heroes who live to fight robots built by bald, mustachioed mad scientists, Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man are hardly an odd couple in their respective battles for the fate of their worlds. Sure, they've had some differences in their current "When Worlds Collide" Archie Comics crossover spanning the ongoing Sonic and Mega Man titles, but they've been able to work as a solid team so far. Unfortunately, so have their foes. In this week's Mega Man #26 by Ian Flynn, Tracy Yardley!, Terry Austin, Jack Morelli, Thomas Mason and cover artist Patrick "SPAZ" Spaziante, the blue duo comes face to face with not one, but two Shadow Men to fight. It's just what happens when roboticizers are running wild and Shadow the Hedgehog winds up getting sucked into the fray.

Mark Waid And Dean Haspiel Relaunch ‘The Fox’ At Archie Comics

Despite various incarnations over the years (including two separate versions published by DC Comics) and the involvement of creators like Carmine Infantino and Alex Toth, Archie's superhero characters have always been the weirder branch of the Riverdale family tree. Over

Bizarro Back Issues: Remember That Time Four Jugheads Fought Morgan Le Fay In The Future? (1991)

jughead01

Over the past few years, I've been completely thrilled by the new approach that Archie Comics has taken with their characters. The Life With Archie series, the introduction of Kevin Keller, crossovers with Glee and KISS, it's all been interesting to see, and pretty entertaining to read. But it's not the
