Fresh from jilting two wives, Archie “Playa” Andrews is moving on to the Pussycats, according to this morning’s press release. We’re not experts in Archie continuity — whether it be comic or strip — so we’re not certain if these two have, er, fraternized before. Will Archie move on to Melody and Josie in a universe spanning x-ver? It’s a Brand New Day for Archie for sure!
Two of the greatest bands in comic book history hook up like never before when Josie and the Pussycats come to town to tour with The Archies. However, more than music is made on one starry night outside Archie’s home, when there’s a kiss that could change Riverdale forever. Is it possible that the pure-hearted, red-haired lead of The Archies is really falling in love with Valerie, the beautiful bassist/songwriter of Josie and the Pussycats? What will happen to Betty and Veronica? “It Starts with a Kiss” is the beginning of a tale to be continued. Don’t miss out while the world watches to see if Archie and Valerie have what it takes to make their love survive. Look for part one in Archie #608, hitting stores this April!
