Fortunately, it doesn't matter if I read it or not. What matters is that enough of us bought it. Which leads me to today's news that Archie Comics announced plans to publish an ongoing follow-up comic book titled THE ARCHIES! It's scheduled to debut in early October 2017. And it looks like the previous creative team remains intact.
For those who don't know, the Archies are a garage band featuring Archie, Jughead, Betty, Veronica, and Reggie. Which possibly spoils the "Over the Edge" storyline over in the main ARCHIE title...(?) According to MTV News, the Archies are heading out on a road tour in THE ARCHIES #1, but their first tour isn't without tension:
But has Archie learned to not take his friends for granted, or will the overnight fame start to get to his head? And when someone makes a decision that leaves the rest of the band scrambling, can The Archies keep it together? The new ongoing series will continue to follow the ups and downs that come with forming a band with friends. Only this time, Archie and the Riverdale gang will get to meet a few of their heroes along the way.Also according to MTV News, THE ARCHIES will feature guest appearances by real bands in future issues -- instead of the Pussycats, presumably. Archie Comics is asking for suggestions from fans of bands that will appear in the book.
So how about it? Which real-life bands to do you want to see guest appear in THE ARCHIES?
