Archie chooses Veronica? Say it isn't so.

One of the longest-running and most enduring romances in history -- a love triangle, really -- may be about to come to an end as the comic character Archie Andrews is about to propose to Veronica. It will happen in the comic's next issue on sale in comic shops August 19 and on newsstands September 1, for $2.50.

For decades (65 years, in fact), Archie has dithered about Veronica, the rich, perky brunette and Betty, the cute and poor blonde in the benign, family-rated comic where change has not been much in evidence.

The news was broken on the Archie website.
Could it be true? Has Archie finally decided to take the plunge and propose to comics' favorite rich girl? It sure looks that way!
The site says that the story is written by movie producer Michael Uslan, drawing upon his lifelong love of Archie comic books to write this very special tale, and it is drawn by legendary Archie Comics artist Stan Goldberg.

I would have gone for that little vixen Midge. I'm pretty sure I could take Moose, or at least outwit him. Here's to slow news days.

There's more to this story than meets the eye. Reggie hasn't entered the story yet. I foresee trouble.
