In Issue 600 of “Archie,” the iconic comics teen gets down on bended knee to propose to rich Veronica Lodge — and breaks long-suffering girl next door Betty’s heart.
From Mike Celizic
After 68 years of waffling, Archie Andrews has made his choice. It’s the raven-haired heiress over the girl next door, Veronica Lodge over Betty Cooper.
Just eight days after Archie Comics announced that Archie would finally choose between his two high-school hotties, the word is out: Archie gets down on bended knee to present Veronica with his proposal and a ring while poor Betty looks on and wipes away a tear. Veronica replies to the proposal with a resounding, “Yes!”
The red-haired all-American boy’s choice is likely to upset many Archie fans. Ever since news that Archie would get married broke, they have been filling the message boards at ArchieComics.com with their opinions on which girl should get the ring.HAH, always have liked Veronica over Betty. Betty just too plain and frumpy looking.
Anyways this is just the engagement, I believe with Archie and his indecisiveness, he will likely break off his engagement in with V [other future issue releases] and marry B.
