Dream Boy

Word on the street is that Archie is getting hitched. This may seem like a good idea, but history has shown us that while Archie may be good for a few laughs and some heavy petting, he’s hardly ideal husband material.

It all starts in Dream Boy as drawn by Dan DeCarlo, with Veronica confiding her secret dream to Betty of giving up the one barrier that keeps her from being with Archie; the vast Lodge fortune. Veronica takes to domesticity surprisingly well, raising the twins on gruel and love while finally finding happiness in Archie’s arms.

Betty also has a dream of the future. Having given up her rivalry with Veronica for Archie’s affections, she’s discovered by Hollywood scouts and becomes a starlet. Unfortunately, upon her return to Riverdale she also turns homewrecker.

How soon we forget, Betty.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? Wait, are you serious? They’re still going to have the good archie comics alongside these new post-crisis ones? What am I going to read on the greyhound bus now?
