Goodreads Synopsis:

It’s a match made in rock & roll heaven when two of the greatest bands get together to make sweet music.

Join The Archies & Josie and the Pussycats on a whirlwind tour full of rockin’ rivalries, romance, and revenge!

What starts with a kiss turns in to an all-out love smackdown when Archie falls for Valerie!

But when Betty & Veronica find out, it could be the end of not only their romance, but of The Archies and The Pussycats, too!


This is a great story!

The Archies and Josie and the Pussycats go on tour together. It was so cool to see these two bands come together.

This comic also shows the romance between Archie and Valerie. They were together for a bit on the show Riverdale, but I didn’t know they had ever been together in the comics. It was kind of awkward to see him with someone other than Betty and Veronica.

As well as the bands, their managers also made an appearance. Josie and the Pussycats had their evil managers Alexander and Alexandra, who stirred up lots of trouble for the bands.

I loved this short collection of comics. It’s a must read for fans of the Archies and Josie and the Pussycats.

What to read next:

  • The Archies & Other Stories by Mark Waid, Alex Segura, Joe Eisma


  • Josie and the Pussycats, Vol. 1 by Marguerite Bennett, Cameron DeOrdio, Audrey Mok
