The world's oldest teenager Archie Andrews has finally decided to settle down with his rich and sexy girlfriend Veronica Lodge, it has been revealed by Archie Comic Publications.
The news of the redheaded teen tying the knot surfaced when the publishers of the bestselling comics posted an entry "Archies Andrews is getting married" on its blogsite www.archie-blogs.archiecomics.com May 15, raising speculations whether Archie would marry the beautiful but rich and spoilt Veronica or the bubbly girl-next door Betty Cooper.
"This August, prepare yourself for the Archie story you never thought you'd see, as Archie proposes to Veronica!...Could it be true? Has Archie finally decided to take the plunge and propose to comics' favourite rich girl? It sure looks that way!," Archie Comic Publications posted on the blog Thursday, a teaser for the 600th edition of the popular comic strip.
The edition will show the Riverdale High School student and his friends graduate almost 65 years after the character came into existence.
"Now make way for this special story that takes a look at Archie and his friends after they graduate college! What careers will they seek?...What would lead Archie to have marriage on his mind? And why would he choose Veronica over Betty? How will Betty react?
"...this will be the biggest wedding Riverdale has ever seen...and the biggest Archie Comics story...In fact, we'll even go so far as to call it the Archie Story of the Century. With a title like Archie Marries Veronica Part 1: The Proposal, how could we call it anything else?," it further read. The edition is to hit the stands in August.
