Is Riverdale Like the Archie Comics?
5 Crazy Things That Could Happen on Riverdale (Based on the Archie Comics)
The Death of the Main Character, Archie Andrews
The craziest thing about Riverdale is that there appears to be a murder mystery from the very start. With death at the forefront on the TV show, it's likely that Archie's death from the comics is fair play. To clarify the events of the comic book series, Archie's death actually comes during the spinoff from the original books. Life With Archie focused on the adult versions of all the characters and didn't affect the canonical narrative of the original comic books. Even so, with the sinister undertones of the Riverdale TV series, we'd venture to say Archie's death is not out of the question. Judging from the murderous undertones at the outset, it seems like no one is safe.
