Archie is already alive again

Archie is dead. Long live Archie. Just a few months after garnering way, way too much media attention for killing off Riverdale's most famous teenager at the end of Life With Archie's run, Archie Comics plans to bring the character back to life in a new series, simply titled Archie.

The new Archie, which is set to debut in early 2015, will feature "a surprising and definitive take on Archie's origin" as it gives the character a "modern, forward-thinking manner" — so yes, this really is the dark, gritty Archie reboot we've all been waiting for.
