I was disappointed with the Archie wedding series, which used a plot of alternate futures to depict the dual fates awaiting Archie Andrews that hinged on his choice between his life-long loves Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge. The plot fell flat, the characters were one-dimensional and the entire premise was too simple to accept. In other words, it was just like all of the other modern Archie comics that I've read and just another example of why I spend my money on buying old Archie digests and magazines rather than subscribe to the new editions coming out today. Needless to say, I was reluctant to invest in this book, but when I got a sneak peak at the first chapter in another comic, I was so entranced that I had to buy it. This book takes the superficial and bland Wedding storyline and transforms it into something so much more. It reminded me of some of the best stories in the old comics that I've read: those with beautiful artwork that told stories peopled with believable characters caught in realistic and emotionally charged (for a comic, at least!) plots.

As the alternate stories unfold, the book reads more like a novel than a comic book and focuses not only on the fate of the love triangle between Archie and his gals but on the future of the entire community of Riverdale as well. The reader gets a glimpse into the alternate futures of Jughead, Reggie, Moose and other favorite characters, each involved in their own dilemmas and uncertainties. The storylines are complex and differ widely enough to remain separate but retain similarities that keep them true to the characters and history behind the entire Archie universe. Many of the future events are surprising but completely believable based on the characters' long-standing attributes.

I really enjoyed The Archie Wedding: Archie in Will You Marry Me? (The Married Life Series), and when i found out that they were going to continue the stories I was really interested in what direction the stories would be taken. And from this book I am very pleased with the direction. As an Archie fan for as long as i can remember this is a great step forward, cannot wait to read the next Book and I really hope that they continue with this, it is truly a great read for all Archie fans.

This is just about the best comic book/graphic novel that I have ever read. Well-developed characters and two fantastic story lines. Mystery, intrigue, trials, tribulations, ambition, tragedy, parallel worlds and parallel lives. Archie and the gang grow up and begin to find that their world is a far more complex and that their lives are far more stressful and intriguing than they ever bargained for. What a read! Beautiful!

A great way to expand on the Archie Wedding book! I fell in love with the characters, and the story, because it shows that they have finally all left school behind, and have begun real life. I can relate to a lot of their experiences starting out after college!

Format: Paperback
After 68 years of dating both Betty and Veronica, Archie finally makes a choice. In issues #600-606, we see their futures if both roads are taken. It is basically multi-universe: Archie marries Betty in one universe, and Archie marries Veronica in the other. Readers see how Archie's choice affects the rest of the Riverdale Gang.

I grew up reading Archie comics. It was different to read about Archie experiencing the real world. Real-life issues in this graphic novel include happiness, struggle, unemployment, trust, business and unfortunately death. I'm a fan all over again.
