First Look: ARCHIE #627 (Archie Meets KISS)

Starting tomorrow, the Riverdale gang meets up with the members of KISS.

Wednesday, 11/30/11, will mark a big day in the world of ARCHIE. It's the day that the band KISS invades the world of Riverdale! Having read the issue already (My review will be up tomorrow) I can say it's worth your time and money to pick this up. Sure, I'm a bit biased because I'm a huge KISS fan, but biases aside, it has a great sense of humor and oddly enough, KISS doesn't feel forced into the book. Aside from a few compelling words from myself, we have a few pages of tomorrow's issue for you.

Every time i see "archie" i don't understand, it seems like some people live in the past.

I don't mind Archie being idealist or idyllic.

I think the gang should visit Simon and Garfunkel, Earth Wind and Fire and the Bee Gees next. That's who the kids are into now, right?

I'm looking forward to this. I almost wish this was a comic like those greeting cards that play music when you open it.

Man, what an unusual crossover. Didn't expect Archie & The Gang to meet a band like KISS but what the heck, I guess it goes to show that Archie Comics has good taste in music. Better KISS than having today's pop artists that are absolute garbage.

But still, I'm not gonna read it. I lost interest in Archie Comics years ago because the plot line is just the same old thing. No progression. Nothing. Archie can go eff himself. Ok I'm going off topic so I'll just end it here.

I knew Gene was a money-whore, but this reaches new levels.

See now this is just wonderful good-humor crossover material that compels me to buy such a thing! I'm ready to read and roll all night...and read it everyday...

This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen and that Francavilla-cover is fantastic.

What the...??

Is this real?? It's not a fanart/parody?

KISS should invade Lobo's comic next time.
