Wait, Archie comics, fave rave of tween girls since forever has an openly gay character? Really, Archie Comics.
... but I didn't care because Superman is boring. Then they came for Batman, but I didn't care because by then I'd stopped buying comics with irritating liberal PC plot lines. Then they came for Spiderman, and Captain America, and Thor, and now...Archie. No, really. Death of Archie.
The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in Wednesday's installment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics' first openly gay character. Andrews' death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.
Yep, they went there! Its as if the entire comics publishing industry has entered into a mass suicide pact, where they all try to destroy their businesses as fast as possible.
Unbearable retard Mr. Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO:
"notes that [Archie] Andrews's passing isn't just a publicity stunt, but also a lesson about gun violence and a declaration of diversity in the new age of Archie Comics."
Because that's what kids want in a comic. Preachy bullshit about diversity and gun violence, weird sex, plus lots of death.
No word on the rumor that has Veronica hooking up with Betty and Reggie for a threesome at Archie's wake. I guess they're keeping that for a surprise at Christmas.
