Archie #604 is the penultimate chapter in the six-part “Archie Marries…” mini-series. This round, Andrews marries Betty and moves to NYC where she pursues her dreams of working in the fashion industry. Soon enough, they end up back in Riverdale to restore the status quo, courtesy of writer Michael Uslan and legendary artist Stan Goldberg. If you read parts one through three, you know that in the Archie marries Veronica version, the couple had twins. Not to be outdone, Betty drops her own baby announcement on Archie at the end of this issue; the only question remaining is whether it’s a boy or a girl.
While I still feel the concept has worn out its welcome, I can’t get too angry at a comic that references Casablanca: “We’ll always have Riverdale! Here’s looking at you, kid!”
