Day 2 of New York Comic Con will be a day Debra Montgomery will never forget. After her boyfriend Jim Alessi brought her to the Archie booth to collect a commissioned piece of art by Dan Parent, she was stunned when the collector’s item turned into a wedding proposal. The artwork featured Archie on bended knee proposing to his dream girl Betty and after Dan presented the art piece to Debra, it suddenly clicked and upon turning around, found her beau down on one knee offering up a ring of his own. The shock was quickly replaced by joy as she enthusiastically nodded yes and embraced Jim.
Newsarama's camera crew were there to capture the event and interviewed the couple afterwards.
It’s a pretty safe bet that Archie Comics is the first booth at NYCC 2012 for a proposal to take place, and we couldn’t think of a more fitting place.
Archie Comics, bringing couples together since 1941.
Before the proposal, Dan shares his part in how it will go down.
