Archie Meets Ramones #1

America’s favorite teens cross paths with the original NYC punks in this extra-sized one-shot spectacular! 

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 punk icons 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 around 1976 New York in this crossover from Alex Segura and Matthew Rosenberg, with art from Gisele Lagace. 

I have to admit, as a fan of 80’s punk, I was really looking forward to reading this one.  The story which takes The Archies bickering bandmates back in time to find themselves as a band was really enjoyable.  I really enjoyed the artwork especially for the 1970’s New York scenes, which really took me back to being a kid.  Despite being a longer one-shot comic, it was a very quick read.  Have ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’ cued up on the iPod for this one!

5 out of 5 stars on this one!
