ARCHIE COMICS FIRST LOOKS

FIRST LOOK: ARCHIE IN WILL YOU MARRY ME

Here's how Archie describes the issue:

"For nearly 70 years, the eternal love triangle has been the bane of Archie's existence. Not to mention fans, who have forever wondered, “Who will Archie choose, Betty or Veronica?” This year, the fans received an answer... not once, but twice! First came the announcement that Archie would marry Veronica... and the reaction was deafening! While some fans rejoiced, others were stunned, and one even sold his rare first issue of Archie! But just as it seemed Archie would forever settle into a life of wedded and parental bliss, a new twist was revealed, as the New York Times announced that Archie's life with Veronica was merely one of two possible paths he could take... and for an encore, he decided to walk down the aisle with Betty! Relive the entire saga from beginning to end with every chapter under one cover. Includes all six installments from Archie #600 through #605, plus the follow-up epilogue in Archie #606."

FIRST LOOK: ARCHIE & FRIENDS #141

Archie & Friends #141 will arrive in stores on March 10 from Archie Comics. The issue is written by George Gladir and various, with art by Fernando Ruiz and various.

Here's how Archie describes the issue:

"'Freshman Year -- the Missing Chapters: Betty & Veronica': For years, fans of Archie Comics have wondered what happened in the years before the fabled teens of Riverdale entered high school. How did everyone meet? Were the teachers always at the high school? Did all of Archie's friends always live in Riverdale? Just when did the 'eternal love triangle' first start? In the 'Freshman Year' saga, originally presented in the pages of Archie #587-591, readers finally learned the back-story behind Riverdale's fabled cast of characters. But that wasn't the whole story! Starting the previous issue and running through four consecutive issues, writer Batton Lash fills in the blanks, giving readers an even bigger glimpse of what went on with Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Reggie, Chuck, and Pencilneck G. In this issue, we follow Betty and Veronica through their freshman year, solidifying their friendship as they bond over their love of the Young Broz boy band. Just wait until they bond -- or not -- over their love for Archie!"

Archie & Friends #141 will be 32 pages and will cost $2.50.
