Archie and the Gang Meet Canadian Indie Pop Duo Tegan and Sara in THE ARCHIES #5

Tegan and Sara join CHVRCHES and The Monkees as latest musical acts to guest-star in THE ARCHIES.


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.

"I love the mix of acts we've gotten to jam with the Archies, and Tegan and Sara are no exception," said co-writer Alex Segura. "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 fifth issue of THE ARCHIES debuts in comic shops and on digital platforms on February 21st, 2018 and features artwork by Joe Eisma, colorist Matt Herms, and letterer Jack Morelli.

The Archies are making music all across the country and meeting icons along the way. What musical acts will The Archies meet next?

REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.

The Best Comics of 2017

It's that time of year again. What comics site is complete without an obligatory "Best of 2017" list? No doubt it's been a crazy year in so many ways and the comic book industry is no different. But instead of concentrating on the scandals and controversies all that matters is the fruit of so many talented peoples' labor who've produced some amazing stories. These are just some of the best independent comics of 2017.


DISCLAIMER: [Editor's Note] Spartantown relies on the generosity of independent comic book publishers to provide review copies in order to post reviews. Thanks to companies like Image Comics, Valiant Entertainment, Archie Comics, Dynamite Comics, Black Mask Studios, Action Lab, and occasionally others, I've had access to some wonderful stories that otherwise I would have missed. I don't get review copies from mainstream publishers like DC Comics and Marvel so this "Best of..." list is far from comprehensive but a good sample …
