Archie Comics has announced that The Archies #5, to be released on February 21st, 2018, will feature the indie pop duo Tegan and Sara.

“I love the mix of acts we’ve gotten to jam with the Archies, and Tegan and Sara are no exception,” said co-writer Alex Segura. “The fun part about writing this series is that the groups coming in get to meet the Archies at different points in their musical journey, and this issue will find the Archies at a major crossroads – one that might change the makeup of the band forever.”

“Of the bands we’ve featured thus far, I’ve been a fan of Tegan and Sara the longest, and I think their team up with The Archies will make for some exciting comics,” said artist Joe Eisma. “I’m looking forward to drawing this super talented and stylish band!”
