Los Angele: Beloved comic book character Archie Andrews will die in an upcoming issue.
Archie Comics announced that the redhead would be killed off. Details of the death are not available, but the story will be covered in `Life With Archie`, which will be released on July 16.
"We`ve been building up to this moment since we launched `Life With Archie` five years ago, and knew that any book that was telling the story of Archie`s life as an adult had to also show his final moment," Archie Comics Publisher and Co-CEO Jon Goldwater said in a statement.
"Archie has and always will represent the best in all of us - he`s a hero, good-hearted, humble and inherently honourable. This story is going to inspire a wide range of reactions because we all feel so close to Archie.
"Fans will laugh, cry, jump off the edge of their seats and hopefully understand why this comic will go down as one of the most important moments in Archie`s entire history. It`s the biggest story we`ve ever done, and we`re supremely proud of it," the statement continued.
