Riot Fest alums Tegan and Sara will make their Archie Comics debut this February in The Archies #5.
“Growing up we loved Archie comics,” Tegan Quin said to MTV News. “We would read them in line at the grocery store and beg for them when we would go on vacation to Vancouver Island in western Canada every summer. I vividly remember passing back and forth copies of the latest Archie comics in the minivan as we made the 11-hour drive through the Rocky Mountains. We feel truly thrilled to be included — even in print form — in some small way with the comic.”
“We’re all thrilled to have Tegan and Sara on board for The Archies #5,” writer Matt Rosenberg added. “In addition to being a big fan of their music, I know that our band can learn a lot from them.”
The comic book will have three different covers from Greg Smallwood, Joe Eisma and Thomas Pitilli.
