CNN: What will be the long-term impact of this story?
Goldwater: Well, this is the end. This is how Archie dies in the pages of "Life With Archie." We will not be retconning, reversing or backtracking on this story in terms of "Life With Archie."
The main Archie line, however, telling stories of Archie in high school, will continue. "Afterlife With Archie" [the "Archie" zombie series] will continue, and we will keep on taking risks with different and new interpretations of our characters.
But as far as we see it, this is how Archie dies. That's how we approached this story and how we're treating it.
"Yeah, it's a big issue, and I find it really emotionally satisfying, but keep in mind this is just a spinoff series aimed at older readers," the author says. "Archie will always be alive in the main comic series."
This raises the issue of what will happen to Archie comics now that the beloved character is dead forever and will never be in any comic ever again...
