The Monkees Meet The Archies In New Comic Book

The Archies have finally come face to face with The Monkees in a brand new Archies comic.

In the forth issue of The Archies comic book some good old fashioned time-travel sends Archie Andrews and friends back to the 1960s where they come face to face with Peter, Davy, Mickey and Mike.

“I can’t believe how lucky we are to have The Monkees in the book,” Matt Rosenberg says. “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.”

In the current Archies comics The Archies are on tour. In the last comic book they met the more contemporary Chvrches.

The Archies and The Monkees collaboration came via approval from The Monkees record company Rhino Entertainment. “It’s exciting to see these two icons of pop culture finally cross paths,” says Mark Pinkus of Rhino. “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 issue will be in comic book stores and available digitally Jan. 17 2018.
