A big OMG in the comic book world--in the 600th issue of Archie, the longstanding love triangle between Archie, Betty, and Veronica will finally come to an end, when Archie is rumored to propose to Veronica after 65 years (it's about time!). This is even more momentous as the "Love Showdown" storyline in 1995, when Archie Comics rumored that Archie might finally choose between the two women--but no dice. So will he finally go through with it this time? And what is going to become of Betty? We will all have to wait until August to find out.
I read Archie in my growing up years, and never thought the story would proceed past the girl friend stage. If I did think about it, I leaned toward Betty as the chosen.
