Archie Meets Ramones????

1

I enjoy an Archie book (as shown in my review of Archie #1 – ) but no matter how much I like the crew from Riverdale, old or new, I can’t see them hanging with The Ramones. I grew up in Queens, hung out on Rockaway Beach. Archie, Jughead, Reggie, Betty, and Veronica wouldn’t have lasted 30 seconds at CBGB’s in the 70’s and 80’s (hell I wouldn’t have either)! They’d have been eaten alive! Face it Betty ain’t a punk rocker! Let’s hope the tour bus breaks down in Riverdale, at least then the gang will have a chance of keeping up!

Then again as they mention in the press release Archie and the gang have already met Predator and of course Kiss so who knows maybe they story will rock!

ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES debuts in 2016.

Here’s that press release from Archie Comics…

ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES IN ROCKIN’ NEW CROSSOVER COMIC

Legendary rock group RAMONES to meet the Riverdale gang in new crossover comic by Alex Segura, Matthew Rosenberg and Gisele.

Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! Coming in 2016, the classic rock group THE RAMONES and everyone’s favorite red-head will be crossing over in an extra-sized adventure!

Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of Archie Comics and The Ramones’ 40th anniversary, the new comic follows in the tradition of Archie Comics crossovers like ARCHIE MEETS KISS and ARCHIE MEETS PREDATOR.

“Having the band crossover with Archie seems perfect and completely insane at the same time,” said ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES co-writer Alex Segura. “Fans can expect a fun, rockin’ and heartfelt extra-sized adventure that will stand up there with some of the best Archie crossovers ever. Which is saying a lot!”

Together with co-writer Matthew Rosenberg and artist Gisele, the team plans to mix the colorful cast of Riverdale with the Ramones in fun and exciting ways.

“Getting to draw Archie Meets Ramones has me fangirling in excitement,” said artist Gisele. “I will draw with the energy and passion of a Ramone to ensure my beloved Riverdale gets a Rock ‘N’ Roll High School.”
