Archie and his friends have been going on an adventure unlike any other in The Archies, and it looks like Tegan & Sara will soon have a hand in that.
The fan-favorite Canadian duo is set to appear in the Archie Comics series, in its upcoming fifth issue. Judging by the issue's synopsis, it sounds like Tegan & Sara will have a pretty big role in The Archies' future.
"After a major meltdown leads to one of their one quitting the band, The Archies will turn to indie pop sirens Tegan and Sara to help them get through a major crisis! Will things get patched up in time for their next show or has The Archies’ tour gone kaput?"
Tegan and Sara join the ranks of CHVRCHES and The Monkees as the latest acts to appear in the new ongoing THE ARCHIES comic book series by co-writers Alex Segura and Matt Rosenberg, artist Joe Eisma, and colorist Matt Herms."
If you're unfamiliar with Tegan & Sara, now is a better time than ever to become familiar with them. The twin sisters have been making music since 1995, and have acquired a legion of fans with songs such as 'Closer' and 'Back in Your Head'. They also have some ties to the world of nerd culture, appearing with The Lonely Island on The LEGO Movie's 'Everything Is Awesome.'
“I love the mix of acts we’ve gotten to jam with the Archies, and Tegan and Sara are no exception,” Alex Segura revealed. “The fun part about writing this series is that the groups coming in get to meet the Archies at different points in their musical journey, and this issue will find the Archies at a major crossroads – one that might change the makeup of the band forever.”
“Of the bands we’ve featured thus far, I’ve been a fan of Tegan and Sara the longest, and I think their team up with The Archies will make for some exciting comics,” said artist Joe Eisma. “I’m looking forward to drawing this super talented and stylish band!”
The Archies #5 will debut in comic stores and online on February 21st, 2018.
