THE ASSOCIATED PRESS broke the news that long-running Archie supporting character Cheryl Blossom would be facing a bout with breast cancer in the pages of LIFE WITH ARCHIE, continuing the series’ forward-looking and topical stories.  This includes, most recently, the wedding of Kevin Keller, which is also a big part of the AP's trend piece on comics and created a storm of publicity and discussion, including mentions in CNN, TIME, ABC News, The Huffington Post, and many more. Archie Comics has received much praise for the wedding issue which subsequently sold out, cementing Kevin’s staying power.

Cheryl will return to Riverdale in Life with Archie #21 to receive support from the Archie gang in her time of need. The AP piece has gone on to be reported by ABC News, CBS News, FOX News, The Seattle Times, The Boston Globe, Yahoo!, The Star Tribune, and Newsday.

Make sure you subscribe to Life with Archie because you’re not going to want to miss a second as the drama unfolds.
