Archie #604

Merry Christmas, everyone!

I wanted to review an upbeat comic for this happy day, and what better choice than the latest issue of Archie, which features his wedding to Betty!

Of course, it's the flip side of his walk "up" memory lane, as he imagines what life would be like if he married Betty instead of Veronica.

This is, of course, the pairing that all right-thinking fans would expect, if the day ever arrived when Archie had to choose between the two.

It's an enjoyable tale as the young couple deal with the working world and try to make their way with limited resources.

What else is there to say? Great art by Stan Goldberg and Bob Smith in the classic Archie style, an excellent story by Michael Uslan, and another solid chapter in this entertaining look at an alternate reality for the eternal teen.

The next issue wraps up the series, and then (presumably) it's back to high school for the gang - which is where they belong, after all.

Grade: B+
