In an epic finale more than 70 years in the making, red-headed comic book character Archie Andrews will die trying to save a friend. The shocking news was announced Tuesday by Archie Comics publisher Jon Goldwater.
Archie will die in the July edition of “Life with Archie,” which is a spinoff series that explores the character’s life after high school and college. Archie will reportedly sacrifice himself while saving the life of a friend in “Life With Archie” #36, which will hits stores July 16.
