Exclusive Preview: The Riverdale Crew Goes to Rock N’ Roll High School in Archie Meets Ramones
HEY! HO! LET’S GO! The Ramones were totally before my time, but they were definitely my intro to the wide world of punk, much like Archie Comics were my intro to the wide world of comics. Now, two of my first loves come together in an awesome one-shot, Archie Meets Ramones.
Archie Comics has sent us some exclusive interior artwork by Gisele Lagace, as well as some rad variant covers. But first, here’s the official solicit info:
ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES #1
Hey! Ho! Let’s go! America’s favorite teens cross paths with the original NYC punks in this extra-sized one-shot spectacular that is not to be missed!
When the Archies tank at the Riverdale High Battle of the Bands, a magical twist of fate sends them hurtling into the past—and face-to-face with none other than the Ramones! Can the legendary punks get the Archies to realize their own rock ‘n’ roll potential and find their way home? Probably not—but it’ll be a blitzkrieg bop of a journey, as the two bands bounce from 53rd and 3rd to Rockaway Beach in this must-read crossover from the writers of the best-selling ARCHIE MEETS KISS and WE CAN NEVER GO HOME with jaw-droppingly beautiful art from Gisele Lagace (“Occupy Riverdale”)!
