Comics Alliance had this exclusive over the weekend:
Yes, it’s true. In 2016, Riverdale’s typical teenagers will be teaming up with New York City’s original punks in a musical crossover for the ages ... a special comic that brings together the formerly disparate worlds of CBGB’s and Pop’s Chocklit Shop in a hyperspeed bubblegum battle of the bands.
Here's writer Matthew Rosenberg speaking about the project at ComicCon:
“It might seem strange to some people to combine these things, but there’s really no divide for me… Archie is what got me into comics, the Ramones are what got me into punk rock, and those two things have always been connected for me. The Ramones are my punk rock heroes, they’re really very comic booky, and Archie has a long history of being connected to music, and being willing to try new things and do cool new stuff, so to me, this makes perfect sense.”
