Stephen Colbert’s Word On Archie And Veronica’s Engagement
From casual fans to longtime collectors, everyone seems to have an opinion on Archie Andrew’s proposal to Veronica Lodge in this week’s “Archie Comics” #600. Given the controversy, it’s no surprise that television’s most opinionated newsman Stephen Colbert had a lot to say about the comic book icons on last night’s “The Colbert Report.”
“It’s the biggest news from the comics world since Dilbert lost his favorite mug and gunned down everyone in human resources,” said Colbert, who noted they had to photographic proof of the event.
Colbert pointed out that some things don’t need changing – especially in the timeless town of Riverdale. Of course, he also seemed to favor some less than progressive gender roles and stereotypes in his signature Colbert style.
