From its upcoming "Twilite" storyline to the digital "Betty the Vampire Slayer vs. Vampironica" tale, Archie Comics certainly hasn't shied away from parodying the scarier side of youth culture of late. For many, however, the scariest story is yet to come. This July Archie and the gang will spoof none other t
When The Hero Initiative calls for big-name artists to draw covers for auctions, they tend to step up, and unlike the guy who sold "Archie" #1 to protest the Veronica marriage, 50 different artists from George Pérez and John Romita Sr. to Todd McFarlane and Cliff Chiang have chosen to celebrate the event and help raise money for creators in need.

Looking through Previews this month, we spotted the solicitation for "Archie" #608, where everyone's favorite teen is on the cover kissing Valerie Brown from "Josie and the Pussycats," and while that might seem pretty tame to anyone who doesn't spend a great deal of time obsessing over Riverdale and its residents...
Archie Andrews has had his hands full lately traveling between potential futures where he's alternately married to either Betty or Veronica, but back here in the present day Riverdale's first son could be making an even bigger leap into his first full video game adventure...

When Archie Comics announced that after more than 65 years of dating, Archie would bring a close to his seemingly eternal love triangle with Betty and Veronica by marrying spoiled rich girl Veronica Lodge in "Archie" #601 on September 1st, not everybody was pleased -- especially long-time Betty fan David Luebke, who responded to the news by selling his rare copy of the very first issue of "Archie" -- the best copy known to exist -- for $38,837.

As Archie Andrews pushes 70 years of publication, many younger fans of Riverdale's resident horn-dog with a heart of gold may not have had the chance to read up on his secret past.
