Chvrches Join the Archie Comics Universe
The indie rockers will mentor fictional band the Archies in an upcoming comic book series
Published Aug 21, 2017Archie Comics has been experiencing quite the resurgence thanks to Netflix's Riverdale series and an upcoming film franchise, and now a new comic is set to put the spotlight back on the iconic cartoon characters' foray into music as the Archies (the fictional band behind the Andy Kim-penned hit "Sugar, Sugar").
The new comic book series, aptly titled The Archies, will follow Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Reggie on their quest for rock'n'roll greatness — and will find the fictional band crossing paths with some IRL rock stars.
First to make a cartoon cameo are the members of Chvrches. The Scottish indie rockers (comprised of Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook and Martin Doherty) will make their debut in The Archies #2, then return with some veteran industry advice in The Archies #3.

The first issue of The Archies hits shelves October 4. Watch MTV News's video announcement of the comic series down below.
