Writer Paul Kupperberg took some time out to speak with Topless Robot about one of the most buzzed about ongoing series "Life With Archie". Kupperberg took over writing duties for the magazine after original series writer Michael Uslan departed, who wrote the Archie Marries storyline which the series spun off from. Unlike any other Archie series before it, Life With Archie focuses on the gang post-high school into their early adult lives, tackling more mature issues yet still manages to have the Archie stamp on it. With 70 years worth of continuity to draw from there is plenty of history to be utilized in this unique entry in the Archie canon. Even more high concept is the inclusion of both possible futures of the ultimate "what if" in Archie Comics: Betty or Veronica. Featuring parallel universes in which the reader can explore both possible outcomes to which bride Archie will ultimately choose, the entirety of the Archie universe is open to be re-imagined in this title.
Life with Archie has been in the news a lot lately for the upcoming issue featuring the wedding of Kevin Keller which also features the first ever combat sequence in an Archie comic which was previewed at NYCC. And that's just in issue 16. With so many firsts coming out of Archie lately, there's no telling what's on the horizon for this forward thinking company.
