Archie Meets Ramones


The Ramones as a group is legendary in music, bringing a reckless style and attitude to their music. Archie is legendary in comics, bringing an aw shucks sensibility and zany high school hijinks to his stories. The two are a perfect fit for one another right? Archie Comics tends to think so, as 2016 will see the two crossover in a new comic by Alex Segura, Matthew Rosenberg and Gisele.

"Having the band crossover with Archie seems perfect and completely insane at the same time," said ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES co-writer Alex Segura. "Fans can expect a fun, rockin' and heartfelt extra-sized adventure that will stand up there with some of the best Archie crossovers ever. Which is saying a lot!"

The team plans to mix the colorful cast of Riverdale with the Ramones in fun and exciting ways. Coinciding with the 75th anniversary of Archie Comics and The Ramones' 40th anniversary, the new comic follows in the tradition of Archie Comics crossovers like Archie Meets Kiss and Archie Meets Predator.

"Getting to draw Archie Meets Ramones has me fangirling in excitement," said artist Gisele. "I will draw with the energy and passion of a Ramone to ensure my beloved Riverdale gets a Rock 'N' Roll High School."
