LEGENDARY COMIC BOOK CHARACTER ARCHIE ANDREWS DIES IN JULY
Archie Comics, the acclaimed and bestselling comic book publisher that is home to some of the best-known pop culture creations in the world, including Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Josie & The Pussycats, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and the hit AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE series, announced the unthinkable today: Legendary comic book character Archie Andrews will die to conclude the hit LIFE WITH ARCHIE comic series.
The iconic comic book character, beloved by millions around the globe for over 70 years, will sacrifice himself heroically while saving the life of a friend in the pages of July's LIFE WITH ARCHIE #36, the final issue in the flash-forward series, which spotlights Archie's adventures after high school and college.
"We've been building up to this moment since we launched LIFE WITH ARCHIE five years ago, and knew that any book that was telling the story of Archie's life as an adult had to also show his final moment," said Archie Comics Publisher/Co-CEO Jon Goldwater.
"Archie has and always will represent the best in all of us—he's a hero, good-hearted, humble and inherently honorable. This story is going to inspire a wide range of reactions because we all feel so close to Archie. Fans will laugh, cry, jump off the edge of their seats and hopefully understand why this comic will go down as one of the most important moments in Archie's entire history. It's the biggest story we've ever done, and we're supremely proud of it."
.Since 1941, the Archie character in comics has been an exciting part of millions of readers lives, possibly even billions, with the adventures of a teenage Archie Andrews and his friends in the fictious town of Riverdale. But in the the No. 36 issue of "Life with Archie,"due out July 16, Archie dies..
The story will be available in multiple formats, including an extra-large magazine-size LIFE WITH ARCHIE #36, two comic-sized issues—LIFE WITH ARCHIE #36 and #37—and a trade paperback collecting the entire story, written by regular LIFE WITH ARCHIE writer Paul Kupperberg, with art by Pat & Tim Kennedy and Fernando Ruiz.
While LIFE WITH ARCHIE #36 shows readers Archie's final moments, #37 leaps a year into the future, showcasing how the remaining members of the Riverdale gang—including Jughead, Betty & Veronica
In addition to the acclaimed regular LIFE WITH ARCHIE creative team, the two comic book issues—sold exclusively at comic shops in July—will feature a pantheon of artistic luminaries contributing covers to the historic issue, including Francesco Francavilla, Fiona Staples, Ramon Perez, Walt Simonson, Jill Thompson, Mike Allred, Cliff Chiang, Adam Hughes, Tommy Lee Edwards and Alex Ross.and Reggie—have honored the legacy of their dear friend. Both stories will be collected in the double-sized LIFE WITH ARCHIE #36 magazine and upcoming trade paperback......No not ARCHIE!!!........Well, strangely enough, ARCHIE IS ALIVE in the remarkably good read, AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE, now MONTHLY!!!!..
ALL Archie comics are VERY READER FRIENDLY. PERFECT to jump on at any point...
Up to THIS point, the most memorable DEATH IN COMIC BOOKS has been............GUESS WHO??

SATURDAY APRIL 5th 2014 is Image Collections CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Movie Event...
...So will CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER lift the "spangly one" to new heights of movie-stardom & more importantly, box-office 'bofo'..... ....Let us know what YOU think through email & facebook, we'll print the best comments AND give YOU the credit you so richly deserve.... ....As for what lowly opinions we have, Image anticipates a continuation of the magnificently played out M.M.M.M. [Marvel Movie Marketing Mainstays] for the forseeable future, with CAPTAIN AMERICA [who has had some GREAT READING comic-runs available to dive into, SEE BELOW!!!] ascending to A-level status due to excellent stories executed the 'AVENGERS'-way...
-----Captain America: Good thing your boss can afford the expenses.."
-----------.Falcon: "True dat..."
------Captain America: "...What?.."
------------Falcon: "Nothing, man..." [like the movies, Cap is a bit behind with pop culture]
....ALlmost ALL of MARVEL's MOVIE MAGIC has come directly as a result of some immensely popular & award-winning comic writing FIRST, with the writers of the books garnishing surprisingly-showcased, yet deservedly so, splashing 'THANK YOUs' in the credits, which, thanks to a continued commitment to a unique 'branding' of MARVEL EXTRAS after-the-fact, audiences actually somewhat pay attention to watching....
.....Not a stretch at all, we find creators actually like [...Alan (Watchmen, V for Vendetta writer) Moore no-so-much...] seeing their name's acclaim in lights & in movie-referencing databases sprinkled dandelion-like all over the 'webisphere', giving them clout, and their stories added exposure to be enjoyed by those who don't realize the comics code is long since expired....

[[[ NOTE: Like the more mature hit 'The Walking Dead' & most acclaimed fiction, if left unspoiled [...obviously the most rewarding reading method...] you won't believe many of the shocking comic panels [picture boxes] your eyes are seeing due to plot-twists, story-turns, and dramatic-'wordsmithing' embeded into the industry's 'Hall Of Fame' tales....

1.----This is modern MARVEL storytelling at its finest, realism-intact, as the MARVEL UNIVERSE's most important crossover ever is also the most divisive, dramatic, & messiest yet! Captain America leaps [...see cover for 'pun' :o] into a self-dug foxhole of troubles, & spotlightthat left the MARVEL UNIVERSE in a tattered, but 'stately' state of being worldly worthy again... --- I.C. Rating of ***** 5/5
------'CAP'-FACTOR:.Put center-stage, Steve Rogers plays the part farthest from the role he's know for, forcing himself to alienate many of those who have been closest to him since his 'reawakening' [...think 'ice-sleep'..]. Captain America as a noisy rebel with a stubborn cause
"Civil War finally addresses many of the questions every reluctant reader of 'silly-superheroes' has begged to have answered..."

"Ninety percent of the casualties of World War I were soldiers, fraulein..... But half the people who died in World War II were civilians...... Half of sixty-one million.... I know why I'm fighting, fraulein.... I don't want to see World War III."

"Do you actually think the fact that you know how to program a computer makes you more of a human being than me?..... That I'm out of touch because I don't know what you know?.... I know what freedom is.... I know what it feels like to fight for it and I know what it costs to have it...... YOU know compromise...."
