Archie‘s here – Betty‘s here, Veronica too – Reggie‘s here. Hey Jughead! Where are you? They wanna dance and they wanna sing, have some fun and go adventuring. All our friends are here – but it ain’t complete, until the Archies and the Monkees meet! Here they come, walkin’ down the street. They get the funniest looks from everyone they meet. Hey, hey, they’re the Monkees, and people say they monkey around, but they’re too busy with the Archies to put anybody down! That’s right Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and Reggie will meet Micky, Davy, Mike and Peter in a time traveling adventure so, come and watch them sing and play!
“A perfect pairing, and they resonate in really similar ways — embracing pop sensibilities, crossing over from different mediums and just channeling the most fun parts of whatever they’re doing, be it TV, music, comics and beyond.”
“I can’t believe how lucky we are to have The Monkees in the book. They were the first band I ever saw live when I was a kid and More of the Monkees was the first tape I ever bought with my own money. Getting the chance to put them side by side with The Archies, two classic bands that blur the line between fiction and fact, is a real and surreal honor.”
“From day one, The Monkees have been trailblazers in the entertainment business, and I’m excited and honored for the chance to draw their appearance in The Archies. It’s going to be a wild one!”
“It’s exciting to see these two icons of pop culture finally cross paths. What a great opportunity to expose a whole new audience to the classic music and antics of The Monkees. I look forward to seeing Micky, Davy, Mike, and Peter in Riverdale!”
“The Archies #4 will be a meta, off-the-wall romp that will hopefully entertain.”
