The 600th issue of Archie hit stands September 1 and reveals that Archie is marrying Veronica, not Betty, after all.
Bob Hastings, who voiced Archie on the 40s and 50s radio sitcom Archie Andrews, says Archie chose Veronica because she acts sophisticated and is out of his league.
Hastings says Archie has always been nuts about Veronica and her spellbinding southern accent.
During the old-time radio show, Hastings says Veronica was played sexier than Betty, and the way she said Archie, dear in her southern drawl drove Archie to nervous giggles.
But despite Veronicas sex appeal, Hastings thinks Betty is the better gal for Archie.
He says her loyalty, cooking skills, and kindness would make her a better wife in the long haul, though if he had his way, Hastings wouldnt marry Archie off at all since the love triangle is a major draw of the comic.
