Archie Andrews Will Be Shot, and Die Saving His Gay Best Friend (Not a Joke, For Realsies)

I thought Jughead was Archie's best friend.

But from this headline it's not really clear if the guy is Archie's best gay friend, or his best friend who is gay. NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT, ETC, YADDA YADDA.

Apparently all that matters now is that a new era of embracing sexual diversity through COMIC BOOKS is upon us. 

Why does Archie have to die?

That is the most pathetic, stupid and silly thing.

I am so glad that this kind of trite crap was not part of Archie comic narratives when I was little, and I'm glad my kids don't read comics.

Is nothing sacred?

(Don't answer that.)
