Published Oct 31, 2017While the television series Riverdale appears to be obsessed with the Vancouver indie label Mint Records, a pair of Western Canadian artists are getting some love from Archie and co. In fact, pop siblings Tegan and Sara are getting their very own issue of the comic.
The duo will be featured in the fifth issue of The Archies comic, helping Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica wrangle their way out of a sticky situation.
Speaking with MTV, who debuted the artwork from the comic, Tegan Quinn said, "Growing up we loved Archie comics.... 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."
Check out the variants of the magazine cover below (complete with references to Radiohead, the Ramones, Rancid and more). The issue will hit shelves in February.
