As you may be aware, The Archies is the series about the Archie gang having a band and interacting with established acts. In issue #4, out in January, the Archies meet the Monkees. I’d say the Monkees have aged well, but the Archies also look remarkable similar to when they had a show in the ’60s.
THE ARCHIES #4
