I agree with the comments that Archie doesn't need realism in it. Archie has always been an escape from the mayhem, the sad, the pains. I like the fact that Archie's world is the "perfect" place. Where all is good, well except for Reggy. It's nice to escape to that place and just know things are all happy and nice. Not the place I want to see tragedy... my escape to a nirvana type world has been marred.
