You may recall when seeing the stories that took a look at what life would be like for Archie if he married Veronica or if he married Betty. In LIFE WITH ARCHIE, both of those realities are continuing to be explored You get two separate stories showing what happens next.

In this month's issue it's about Kevin Keller and his campaign for the U.S. Senate. Check out this exclusive preview courtesy of Archie Comics.

LIFE WITH ARCHIE #28

"Archie Marries Veronica" – Kevin’s campaign is now in full swing and he’s got Veronica working hard behind the scenes to ensure his run for senate is a successful one. But pulling double duty as a campaign manager as well as running her own business is taking its toll on her relationship with Archie—who has his plate full as well heading up Mirth Music. Will the couple find time to spend together despite their consuming careers? Meanwhile at the Choklit Shoppe, manager Jughead gets a surprise visit from an old friend, but the joyous reunion soon turns serious as the visitor delivers a warning about Jug’s business partner…

"Archie Marries Betty" – Archie’s alternate reality counterpart is dealing with similar relationship woes as Betty, who was already working overtime hours on the school committee, has now accepted Mr. Weatherbee’s offer to fill in as assistant principle! After that bombshell announcement, can Archie hope to even fit into Betty’s overloaded schedule anymore? After taking over the Gazette, Reggie struggles with the decision to endorse Kevin for office and Jughead’s concern over the recent robberies is heightened as there’s still no suspects in the ongoing case. Does Jellybean’s shady boyfriend factor in somehow?

Wait, he married both of them in alternate realities and they publish both of them? Talk about the ultimate cop out. And is Archie being facetious or condescending by saying, "You GO Kev!" to a gay guy? This magazine has fallen far.

That seems like a long preview. Are these comics longer than DC/Marvel ones?

@Trodorne: Not since I was about 10. It seems like a good pre-teen book (minus the married to Betty AND Veronica cop out) but there are way better drama/non-superhero books on the market, I think.
