So, recently, when I went to Kinokuniya, I spotted an Archie comic! So I flipped it open to see what it was like! 

Apparently it was a five-part issue about Archie and Betty's wedding. They had kids, Jughead got married...

It was a very distressing thing to read.

When I was younger, I loved Betty because Betty was the good girl who never got anywhere. We all loved her and wanted her to get what she wanted! But she never did. That was the whole point of the Archie comics; Archie couldn't choose, Jughead didn't like girls, Reggie fails because he's a meanie... it was supposed to leave you guessing, thinking, wishing. How many times have I conjured up scenarios where Betty got Archie to the prom? Or Reggie crossed a line?

I don't know what Archie comics are doing anymore. I stopped caring about it a long time ago. But seeing that issue, reading through it... I feel like they've taken away a part of my childhood and I don't know how to get over it.
