Archie Comics rocks out to new romance!
From Archie Comics web site:
New York, NY (April 7, 2010): Archie Comics, home of world famous comic
book bands The
Archies and Josie and the Pussycats, is about to rock the
world of romance! On April
21st the two bands hook up like never before! And now a new flame,
Valerie, the super-bright and
beautiful songwriter/bassist of Josie and the Pussycats, will play her
way into the Archie love
Archie’s life-long struggle to choose between Betty and Veronica isn’t
the whole picture. There have
always been other girls like Cheryl Blossom who interfere in the battle
for Archie’s heart. But
something is different about Archie’s secret romance with Valerie and
it’s about to change the
course of affections. How long can the secrecy–and their love–last?
With The Archies and Josie
and the Pussycats co-headlining their first tour together, things could
get messy. A stage is hardly a
place to hide, and when Betty and Veronica find out, it could be the end
of Archie and Valerie’s
"The online response to the January release of the cover with Archie and
Valerie kissing was a thrill!
We are eager to see the reaction as the story comes out," states Archie
Co-CEO, Jon Goldwater.
"And if there’s enough demand there’s always a chance for an encore."
Beyond the Archie comics on iTunes, Stan Lee Comics at Archie, Archie’s
Red Circle superheroes at
DC, and more exciting new partnerships, Archie Comics continues to rock
the comic book world with
exciting new stories with every issue!
The romance begins when "It Starts with a Kiss" in ARCHIE #608,
4/21/2010, and continues with "More Than Words" in ARCHIE
