The series was launched in response to changing reader demographics and to tackle social issues such as marriage equality, gun control, and the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Life with Archie depicted alternate futures for Archie and his friends, one in which he marries Betty, and another in which he marries Veronica.

The series featured a diverse cast of characters and explored issues such as interracial marriage, disability, and political corruption. Life with Archie gained praise for its progressive themes and mature storytelling, breaking new ground in the world of comic books.

However, the series was short-lived, ending with issue #36 due to low sales. The final issue depicted Archie's death while saving the life of his friend, Senator Kevin Keller. The issue generated significant media attention and was the subject of much debate among fans.

Despite its brief run, Life with Archie remains a significant moment in the history of Archie Comics and comic book storytelling as a whole. The series tackled important social issues and demonstrated the power of comics to engage with difficult topics with sensitivity and nuance.{{Categories}}
