WASHINGTON – This July, the United States Postal Service will be immortalizing the Archie Comics love triangle in an official postage stamp.

The stamp will feature one of the most enduring images of the Riverdale romance—Archie Andrews sipping sharing a soda with his two favorite girls, brunette heiress Veronica Lodge and blonde girl-next-door Betty Cooper. The image symbolizes the ongoing commitment of the strip to depict the goofy adventures of the eternally idealized American teenagers.

Archie Comics is the longest running strip featured in the five stamps in the collection. Titled “Sunday Funnies,” the set will also include Beetle Bailey, Dennis the Menace, Garfield, and Calvin and Hobbes.
