This seems like an odd, and easily handled, decision for what purports to be a "wholesome and family friendly" property.

It's obviously intentional...but why? What is the backstory here...other than rubbing our noses in the satanic agenda.

Of course...Archie has been going dark lately. A mature spin-off series has Archie die protecting his gay friend. Another adults-only title has the undead running amok in Riverdale. Archie comics also has an imprint that loves using the word '#.' There have also been strange, dark pairings with Archie meeting the Predator, Kiss, and the Punisher.

Now I'm no bible thumper, nor am I the easily offended type. I am a bit of a tinfoil hat wearer. As word of the real Satanic agenda rearing it's head, and its adherents becoming more bold and brazen...this seems like it's so far gone now and they've truly won.

Or am I reading too much into Archie Comics #666 being a major milestone for the character and the company, creating a press event around it...but not acknowledging any significance with the number...just letting it lie there.

I just think the whole thing seems, at minimum, incredibly tone deaf. Again, something like an issue number is easily controlled. End the series at #665... #665.5...whatever. It's not like that number is something super obscure or some weirdo numerology trick. It's pretty much right out there. The only thing the numbering could be is intentional...and intentional to make some kind of point.

I mean...who even reads Archie Comics? Besides adult basement nerds, my guess is pre-teens...pre-teens in the Midwest to be more precise. That's the heart of the Bible Belt.

I don't know...this just feels so off...wrong...sinister in the worst way and targeted at innocence.

Also...Apparently Betty sold her soul to the devil in 1962...just so she could make out with Archie

Why couldn't they go another 34 and stop at an even 700 for 70 years. Man, I used to love Archie comics. I still have tons of them in a box somewhere. Archie, Little Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, the Archie digest books. Honestly, I didn't know they were still publishing. I can't remember the last time I saw and Archie comic in a store.

A good place to start looking for clues would be in the comics themselves. Usually if there's a message to get across it will be done through symbols in the background etc.

Being that I've read only a handful of Archie comics and don't own any I'm probably not the person to go looking but the thought is out there.

I read Archie comics as a kid and don't know why I quit. They don't seem to be on every store's book shelf now day's.
Veronica was some kind of hot, I'd still like to _____ her.

None of the links are working. Actually, they aren't even links. Just plain text...

Hm, there are six alternate covers, so I take it 666 issues is deliberate.

They're not ending Archie comics though, just this incarnation's run. "A new age for Archie Comics is set to dawn with the relaunched "Archie" #1, an ongoing series debuting sometime this summer"

well archie certainly has covered demonic topics before. here's an example i found dealing with one of the characters getting literally possessed and the damaged/havoc that ensues. Quite frankly I had no idea that archie ever dealt with topics like this. everything ive ever read of archie gave me the impression that the comic was quite tame. My mother had a pretty decent Archie collection from reading them as a kid and shes as tame as can be, but perhaps there is something lurking in the shadows over at Archie comics...muwhahaha

Archie comics sucked. I have no idea how they made it to the ripe old number of 666. I used to hate going to the comic store and only seeing Archie comics in the 5 for a dollar bin. I think they were made for little girls. As for the antichrist thing, all publicity is good publicity when your comics don't sell.

This song went to No.1 twice on the top 40 in 1969.



I don't believe any other song accomplished that.
So it was the record companies what did it!
