Partial Victory in Singapore: Two Out of Three Books Back in Libraries
Singapore’s government will not destroy library copies of And Tango Makes Three and The White Swan Express after all, but will move them to adult sections. But a third book, Who’s In My Family by Robie Harris, was already destroyed months ago, and Archie: The Married Life 3 still can’t be imported or sold there.

December 1967

I’ve already posted at least two pictures of Archie manacled to Betty or Veronica. I sense a theme.

THE FASCINATING DEATH OF ARCHIE ANDREWS BREAKS CREATIVE GROUND IN AMERICAN ‘EVENT COMICS’
By Chris Sims
It’s been very interesting to watch Archie Comics transform from a company built on eternally unchanging teenage shenanigans in a peaceful, small town to the culturally progressive company that grabs headlines at every turn with how it’s rebuilding Riverdale for the modern comics reader. But besides the stories that strike chords within contemporary political conversations, it’s been fun seeing just how Archie tackles these “Big Event” elements that we’ve seen in other American comics. I mean, in the world of superheroes, a character’s death (or “death”) has been a rite of passage since the ’70s, but for Archie, it’s entirely new territory. In waiting so long to use these elements, the events not only feel fresh, they’re also built in a much more interesting way than their cape-and-tights counterparts.
Or at least, that’s the case with Archie’s death at the hands of a gunman in the pages of this week’s Life With Archie #36, which isn’t just an evocative and moving story, it’s also one of the most fascinatingly structured comics I’ve ever read.

More bad news out of Singapore: in the wake of a ban on three children’s books featuring same-sex parents from the city-state’s libraries, today we learned that the government has also barred booksellers from importing Archie: The Married Life vol. 3, which features the wedding of gay character Kevin Keller. Many more books have likely been banned as well, but government officials refuse to provide a full forbidden list.
