This is it. We've caught up to the present.
There's been a lot of stuff that's gone down.
And the characters have come through it.
Through it all, this is Life with Archie...
>>
And here we go....
>>
And a character recap for good measure.
>>
>>
>>
Oh damn....
>>
>>
>>
>>
WHICH ONE?

COCONUT OR BUTTER-CREAM?
YOU DECIDE!
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
BINGO!
B-I-N-G-O spells CAUGHT YA!
>>
Betty's Life, also titled, Archie and the other Redhead
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
He's going loco that's for sure.
>>
>>
Holey Moley!
Archie.... that's some stuff right there.
>>
>>63757548
>>63757565
How long until he accidentally tweets a dick pic to his gay boyfriend and has to resign from the senate right before the big gun vote?
>>
>>63757691
Damn dude.
>>
>>
>>
>>63757735
Erm... gay HUSBAND.

>>63757740
Right?
Betty-Archie is going down deep.
>>
Everyone's giving Betty guff today!
>>
>>
>perfect comic with Archie married to Veronica
>goes immediately into shitty comic with Veronica with Reggie and Archie in a horrible marriage to the cow
Why do they bother NTRing in their own comic
>>
>>
>>63757822
I actually do like Veronica and Reggie... but Veronica-verse just gets me more entranced.
>>
Gee thanks Mr. Bee!

Still, Betty-verse has a great Bee and Moose.
>>
>>
>>
Bella is actually pretty admirable for how just unabashed she is here.
>>
>>
>>
Ah.

Wait... WHAT?!
>>
#35:
wherein everything is coming up Jughead!
>>
>burgers
>onion rings
>milkshakes
>all dat 'mercan food
ugh so hungry
I wish I could stuff my face with that at all hours of the night in grorious nippon
>>
Attaboy Jughead

Persistence that paid off.

>>63758006
If nothing else that is always the thing you can take away from Archie...

>>
>>
That's not something you see everyday
>>
>>
>>
>>
Great impressions you're making Arch.
>>
>>
Fred Mirth couldn't escape it after all.

Well... he could, but let's go with the optimistic notion for now.
>>
Those two crazy kids made it.
>>
Veronica-verse Dilton made it back!
Glad to see he's no longer insane.
>>
>>
These two crazy kids made it as well.
Though which one is crazier I cannot tell.
>>
Very eloquent Moose
>>
Well, it IS a small town.

But Well Said!
>>
>>63758274
is that Sabrina floating in the background on that cloud?
>>
Just enjoy the happy note...
>>
Betty-verse, or, more Jughead!

>>63758331
Yes, yes she is. Cause Jughead is that cool.
>>
If you want I can storytime #36. I just came in pretty late to getting back on track with the storytiming.
>>
>>
Did they ever made a married life comic
where Archie married someone other than Betty or Veronica?
>>
>>63758361
It's no problem, I have plenty of time to do it.
Unless, of course, you want to do it. I won't stop ya.
>>
>>
>>63758394
There was an arc similar to the first "wedding" arcs where he got with the black pussycat.
>>
>>
>>63758436
was that arc interesting?
>>
>>63758462
It was alright, I forget was issues it was.
>>
They said move it!
>>
>>
>>
>>63758487
>it was alright
well thats a disappointment
>>
>>
>>
Mr. Bee, you ol' dog!
Good for him.
>>
>>
>>63758395
I think I can probably do it. It's a way to get this thread bumped up more.
>>
>>
>>63758608
Well, no problem then.
After I finish this issue then.

Which should be in a handful of pages.
>>
Betty's onto ya game Arch!
>>
BOOSH
>>
>>
>>
>>
Cause it's a good name Jughead's sister!

And I am out! Old OP bring is gonna bring us home...
>>
>>63758737
Baby bump
>>
>>63758737
And now, the death of Archie.
>>
>>63758877
ITS WHAT WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR...

Well, personally I was in it for Ethel getting hitched

If you've been following the threads you won't need the timeline, but it's great for sorting out what's happened in which universe.
>>
>>63758941
>>
>>63758941
Right?
It's still missing some stuff but for a primer it's really great to have as a resource.
>>
>>63758958
>>
>>63758984
>>
>>63759012
>>
>>63759039
Basically whichever universe was your favorite, just insert the name whenever he's being vague as heck
>>
>>63759039
>>
>>63758941
so in this universe
he didn't fuck anyone yet?
>>
>>63759156
>>
>>63759178
>>
>>63759166
Nah he did.
>>
>>63759197
>>
>>63759351
And there's Memory Lane again.
>>
>>63759388
Damn Memory Lane, it's no good
>>
>>63759388
>>
>Archie literally married $INSERT_GIRL_NAME
what a cop out
>>
>>63759461
A cop out to what?
He married Veronica and he married Betty.
That's what the series has been about.
>>
>>63759488
Well it's obvious by the end that Veronicaverse is superior but this ARCHIE DIES chapter just pretends that it could be either one
>>
>>63759522
Yeah, the whole forced ambiguity really didn't work for me either.
Of course one understands that they didn't want to write the same event twice I think a better way to have done it would to have done a V-shape structured issue.

Like maybe each page is half of each verse and then it funnels into the climax.
>>
So is this all just an elaborate reboot?
>>
>>63758006
If you're in Oki, just head out to one of the taco rice stands.
>>
>>63759621
What... naw.
Memory Lane just does this to people.
>>
>>63759440
>>
I'll let you anons in on a secret.
the best girl always has an "R" in her name. doesn't matter if western or eastern.

veronica v betty
mary jane v gwen
marceline v bonnabelle
ryoko v aeka
rei v asuka
rukia v orihime

in the case of both names containing an R, whoever's is closer to the front of the name wins.
>>
>>63759670
>>
>>63759693
>>
>>63759725
They pretty much had both of his kids in these scenes have red hair just to not reveal whether his wife is Betty or Veronica.
>>
>>63759769
>>
>>63758587
The man must have a dick like a baseball bat.
>>
>>63759653
So Memory Lane is like.. a fractured splinter of the Funkyverse?
>>
>>63759812
No.
It's just a place where people get lost in memories. Either past or future.
>>
>>63759802
>>
>>63759769
he probably married Betty
since Veronica has black hair and black hair is a dominate gene
while blond hair and red hair goes either way.
>>
>>63759870
It would make sense, there's a bunch of things that point to it leaning more toward the Archie/Betty universe.
>>
>>63759870
It don't matter who he married.
This issue happened in either universe.
>>
>>63759843
>>
>>63759908
>>
>>63759802
This reminds me of the old Superman/Batman comics where they had Superman Jr. and Batman Jr., but refused to reveal their mothers.

Honestly, this issue's not doing it for me. They should've had the episodes done up separate, with maybe a third part of the issue dedicated to him getting shot.
>>
>>63759980
Yeah, that way each has their own small build up to the same conclusion
>>
>>63758239
why is it that cancer only strikes Cheryl in a universe where Archie gives Bettie the d?
>>
>>63760012
Well, being two different universe (only one of which had Fred Mirth) it's safe to assume that while the people act similarly and are named the same and have mostly the same dynamics.... they are not the same.

Veronica-Cheryl probably doesn't/never had it.
>>
>>63759933
>>
>>63760080
>>
>>63760107

>>63760172

Cheryl here looks like the Earth-Betty version.
>>
>>63760355
>>
>>63760372
>>
>>63760388
>>
>>63760355
Yeah it's probably Betty-Earth with veronica-earth aspects thrown in instead of the other way around.

I find it funny how they threw in Dilton finally at the end of the previous Veronica-verse story so they could align them more.
>>
>>63760410
Wait, I don't get it. First they have Cancer Cheryl, and then there's regular Cheryl right there?
>>
>>63760410
>>
>>63760471
That's Bella Beazly
>>
>>63760495
Ah.

Too many damn redheads.
>>
>>63760525
There's also the "Teen Hottie" or something that was always used in the character recaps for the Betty-verse as one of the new students... but she never had any lines so I kept laughing whenever they used her picture in the recaps.

And by that I mean in Jughead terms... given where he ends up after all this.

>>63761044
>>
>>63761044
Oh, come on. That probably just clipped some intestines. He could live for a long while if he didn't get medical treatment.
>>
>>63761067
That shot also could have hit his liver and perhaps a kidney, and a point blank.

What a way to go...
>>
>>63761191
Still, he could live for a few hours and get to a hospital.

You know, I have a lot of the classic Archie books and seeing this just hurts. I mean, if you told me a few years agothat this would happen. I would never believe you.

Come on now, Reggie is a pretty stand up guy now in two rather good relationships.

And so it was Jughead all along

I feel like something really important just disappeared.
That picture feels like the death of innocence.
I mean fuck, that's Archie dying there.

Man, this entire issue is just. Eh. Is there one more? Because it feels like all of the AB and AV plots just came to a dead halt.

>>63761524
Eh, I'd be more shocked if they hadn't also had Night of the Living Dead in Riverdale.
>>
>>63761524
Is this confirmed to be the last issue ?
>>
>>63761546
>>63761561
There will be one last issue that will be have an epilogue to both universes set one year after his death.

They're still publishing other Archie comics. Archie only dies in this one comic.
>>
>>63761537
>>
So now that we're up-to-date, I have an important question for everyone.
If you encountered an alternate universe version of you, would you fuck them?
>>
>>63761537
>The MLJ founder reasoned that if a "super man" could sell copies, how much more would an "every man" appeal to readers?
That's kind of a dumb logic. People don't really look for the same things in Superman and Archie.

>>63761609
>>
>>63761631
Well, it worked for them though.

Now that we're up to date:

>>
>>63761790
>>
Although it pisses me off greatly that they took a character whose light, funny books entertained me through many bored summers as a child, and brutally murdered him as a way to make their book edgier and more post-modern, I am still thrilled to see Archie return from the dead next year and take on the mantle of Captain America, once they kill the new one off again.

>>63761818
I hope not.
Or if anything they keep Kevin's speech the same and the REALLY show what happened in each universe.
>>
>>63758877
Damn, that's actually a pretty good cover. Most of the others were your standard soap opera kinda stand-ins. But this one's a lot more planned out.
>>
>>63763596
It's part of the variants.
The double sized official cover is archie lying bleeding out.

Here are the other variants.
>>
>>63763652
>>
>>63763677
>>
>>63763692
The Last issue will also have it's own variants but that's it for now.
>>
>>63757766
That is some dramatic lighting for a security guard.

How will everything go to shit for Ambrose next?
>>
>>63757822
Well, the Betty verse definitely started out as pretty superior, so I guess things have to flip-flop a bit to stay even.

Roller coaster ride of events and drama and soap opery stuff.

I like to think of this more as a TDKR/"Whatever Happened" type affair... but something like that would be awesome.
>>
>>63771799
Isn't that issue #37?

ALso, didn't Marvel do "One Year Later?"
>>
>>63771830
No I think they mean just a few one-shots about other potential outcomes that would be released one year from now.

#37 is one year after Archie's death in-story.

And DC did One Year Later but it was a shift in status quos. This is just an epilogue.
>>
>>63769511
Interested in this too.
>>
And so the moral of Life with Archie is: Life is a crazy rollercoaster and you'll die without having achived anything.
>>
I shouldn't be this invested in an Archie comic
>>
>>63773102
Nah the moral is more like... You can affect the things around you but not the overall picture.
>>
>>63773102
Nah man, here's the lesson. Alternate timelines suck and and Archie should be ban from walking up or down Memory Lane. Nothing good ever comes from it?
>>
>>63773625
Memory Lane should be banned in general. Just cordon off the whole area.

Except for Jughead. He seems to have made it out alright.
>>
Are the actual stories where Archie Marries Betty/Veronica any good? I know they aren't covered in the Life With series.
>>
>>63761133
I was a little annoyed when the shooter ended up being the bus boy, who was probably also the homophobic mall shooter, and not the shady security guy from the club who was totally legal to carry. But had to go all the way with the agenda I guess.

>>63773748
It was a six part arc (three for each girl) and they were alright. Felt a bit rushed and there are some moments that don't quite gel... But the first two parts for each girl do serve as an effective prequel to the series.
>>
>>63761524
the beanie soaked in blood was a rather heavy handed touch.
>>
>>63773768
I just don't understand why Archie had to die defending some random gay dude.
>>
>>63773828
They've been pushing Kevin as a character really hard for the last couple of years.
Like, a lot.
>>
>>63773787
I wonder. Archie seemed to start trying to revive interest in the Archie brand around the time they started having trouble with the Sonic comic. Think it was intentional in case the lost the rights to Sonic?
>>
>>63773888
Why? Cause he's gay? That's redundant, they already had Jughead.
>>
>>63773937
He had his own mini, his own prose novel, and is now usually featured prominently on the covers of collections such as The Archie Babies (Reggie was pushed out)

>Pushing out the best Archie character for some token minority created not even 10 years ago

What next? Are going to replace Betty with that wheelchair chick they introduced recently?
>>
>>63773828
having him die saving Jughead from an angry ex franchisee would have made too much sense. And Kevin seems to be their REAL LIFE SOCIAL ISSUES magnet
>>
>>63774102
The point being that he's not some random gay dude.
He's Kevin Keller. And they're making sure you don't forget.
>>
>>63774102
>What next?
I'm still betting on 'Ethel was MtF trans all along'. It's the only check box they haven't hit yet.
>>
>>63774255
If that had happened in the Veronica world what do you think would have happened?
>>
>>63774299
I don't think Mr. Lodge would keen on his child getting a sex change.
>>
>>63774477
Ethel isn't Lodge's kid
>>
>>63774299
there would have been a huge overwrought subplot about her coming out to Jughead about it.

But no, I mean I totally expect them to do it in the regular comics. But probably not, it would make jughead seem super transphobic in all the old comics and tumblr would throw a fit at the idea of trans* character actually looking like a real transgendered person that started transitioning post puberty
>>
>>63774835
It really would make Jughead look bad. I mean even more so than usual because Ethel is pretty nice.
>>
>>63774835
>started transitioning post puberty

But Ethel has always been Ethel. So.

Hey, thanks for being a great OP

>>63773889
It wouldn't surprise me. Plus I think that for all of Archie's strength in the newsstand market, it's possible that the newsstand market in general isn't quite as strong as it used to be. (have you ever noticed how the number of magazines reduced since like five or six years ago?)
>>
>>63773889
I'm not too sure about that. At least, that can't be the only thing. Problems with the Sonic comic may have been coincidence and hasn't necessarily matched up with the timeline that way. Around the beginning of the lawsuit, the digests sales were doing really well, better than Sonic, really. (About 60-90k+) If anything, I'd say it was just one contribution. The others would've been the Co-CEO scandal, the drop in digest sales (About 30-40k currently). and possibly knowledge of lost contracts.

The lawsuit happened at 2010. If it were true, that would mean some of the stunts to push the brand to the wider audience would have been planned three years ago. I don't know how early they do things in advance, but that means things like the MAC makeup line, the Sabrina cartoon, and the new Archie cartoon was planned in less than three years. However, the comic gimmicks (sans Afterlife) must've been planned way before the lawsuit. So, it's hard to say.

I'm still intrigued by that rumored teen movie Archie.
It could work if they get the right balance of consistent tone/update that so many get wrong.
>>
>>63790311
Wait, explain, what Archie movie? There's going to be one?
>>
>>63791789
I remember some time ago, when Afterlife first launched that there were some thoughts about doing a Breakfast Club-esque Archie movie.
>>
>>63771759
>>WHAT IF...The Punisher was there to save Archie?

I'd pay a gorillion dollars for that.
>>
>>63790311
I wonder if they could still get Stephen Colbert to play Mr. Lodge or would his late night hosting get in the way?
>>
>>63792362
Was... was that a possibility?
Because, weirdly, I can see it working.

Honestly I think the thing that most works against any such movie is the casting. The characters and their looks are just so... ingrained. Getting an actor to look like them would seem forced.
>>
>>63791844
I heard rumors Archie was meant to have some type of teenage midlife crisis in the story. I think it was close to graduation, but there are probably many changes made to the idea since then, assuming it does get made eventually.

Also, any new news about It's Archie? Last I checked, there were new designs, but since then I've heard nothing.
>>
>>63792724
Teenage midlife crisis, huh? Sounds about up their alley.

Also, nah just the new designs and I haven't heard much since then.
>>
>>63792724
So, Can't Hardly Wait but with a more retro feel to it?
>>
>>63792413
>Was... was that a possibility?

In the early Life With Archie issues there were a bunch of articles and stuff. One was having fun speculating on who should play the characters and the Stephen Colbert as Mr. Lodge suggestion came up.
>>
>>63793008
With the right look and intonation, he could maybe do it. Always read Lodge with a more stern and not that deep, but deeper, voice though.

>>63792957
I'd watch that.
>>
>>63792957
No clue, really. They were very vague about it.

>>63792866
>Teenage midlife crisis, huh? Sounds about up their alley.

If this were before Life with Archie came out, I'd be skeptical. Thanks to Archie's recent takes on drama, I'm more confident with them handling a type of teenage midlife crisis well while still keeping true to Archie.
>>
>>63793105
Yeah before I don't think that Archie and some real drama could ever really mix. But after LwA I think that taking that sort of mold and placing it onto their teenage selves could work. I mean, it worked for John Hughes movies, and those were pretty chipper/colorful in places.

And whatever they do, this would have to be chipper/colorful in places.

What if 37 is set in the veronica universe given that 36 was clearly the betty one?

I read that as "Juggheads cockslits".

What exactly is the appeal of this series?

To see Archie and his friends grow up from perma high school.

They're never going to take Archie out of high school, so this is pretty much the closest we're going to get. Not much an elseworlds or a what if but a Whatever Happened.

It could have ended no other way.

Just wanted to say thanks to the OPs for doing this whole series this past week. It's been a fun ride.
I never thought I'd be this hooked on Archie, but here I am, staying up to all hours reading it. It's too bad really that this series is coming to end. I kind of wanted to see Archie in his new job in the Veronicverse. I hope in the wrapup thing they'll say what happened to Mirth; if they got him or not.
Dilton timetravel story arc where he tries to save Archie when??
>>
>>63761282
The universe neutrality of the ending was annoying.
They could have at least killed Archie twice and given each universe it's own scene instead of once completely avoiding which universe it actually is.
>>
It still hurts, /co/.
>>
People read this
>>
>>63844526
Yes.
>>
>>63840628
>>63840183
I really hope that each universegets their own scenes in tomorrow's finale. Even if they keep Kevin's speech the same, they at least have a montage of what happens to each.
Closure.
>>
So OP answer me this

Does that mean there is no more Archie comics ever again now?

What does this actually mean for Archie in the long run? If it's a side story or a separate universe/timeline or whatever doesn't that make his death meaningless?
>>
>>63846592
Well, I'm not OP, but this is actually some sort of "What if" where we see what COULD happen if Archie married Betty/Veronica. And although this endgame only affect those two universes, and ends the comic "Life with Archie" and nothing else, it will probably bring more money for the company. I mean, it's already been proven that death of well recognized characters sell, and thus...

I kinda expect something like this to happen in other non-Archie comics, and probably a new comic series.
>>
>>63846592
Archie will always be a teen in the main comic. Now we've seen all of them grow up, get married, and now die. It's Archie. Who the fuck expected him to die?

Let's not talk about meaningless since that alone, other timeline or not, is a way to end this story we never thought they would
>>
>>63847149
Also if you want to get really deep into it, the comic sets up that each era of Archie, 50's 70's 80's 90's, are all different universes. Every time that comic updates for a new generation it's a new universe.
So, really, this is the death of late 80's to 90's Archie.
