Here at ComicsAlliance, we've been pretty enthralled by the soap operatic saga of Life With Archie
for nearly two years. Now, just when we thought we'd seen it all -- what with Veronica's father going insane, Cheryl Blossom's cancer, Dilton's Hulk Hogan-esque mullet -- things are about to get even worse for Riverdale.
According to the solicitations for this month's installment of the "Archie Marries Veronica" storyline, someone gets shot
, and from the looks of the covers, it's going to be Dr. Clay Walker, the newlywed husband of Kevin Keller

Well, that certainly doesn't bode well. Meanwhile, in the story where Archie marries Betty, things are slightly
