Archie Comics has announced it will kill off its namesake in the concluding issue of Life with Archie. The death will happen in a special double-sized Life with Archie #36 in July, which will also include a story that flash-forwards a year to see how he is remembered. Two special comic book-sized editions with both stories will be sold exclusively to comic shops in July.
As with any event this momentous to a franchise, Archie Comics will release multiple variant covers of both comic issues of #36 and #37, featuring covers by Alex Ross, Fiona Staples, Ramon Perez, Walt Simonson, Jill Thompson, Mike Allred, Cliff Chiang, Adam Hughes, Tommy Lee Edwards and Francesco Francavilla. The story will also be collected in a trade paperback edition to ship later.
ICv2 recently interviewed Publisher and Co-CEO of Archie Comics Jon Goldwater regarding the state of the comics market, the experimentation of recent storylines in the Archie universe, including Life with Archie, and the company’s new line of superhero comics (see "Archie's Jon Goldwater: The ICv2 Interview").
