Nothing gets Archie Andrews’ heart racing quite like the clang of tambourines against smooth, smooth hips.
In March’s Archie #631, comics’ most tumultuous love triangle explodes in a blaze of pyrotechnics as two pop rock icons lock lips. Valerie Brown of the Pussycats is frisky for Riverdale’s favorite son, and the three issue arc will set a sultry tone for 2012. Writer and artist Dan Parent told USA Today that the pairing–last explored in 2010–is the “most romantic story in Archie history.”
Steamier than Jughead and a bushel of sliders? That’s saying something.
Like the recent “Married Life” story line in Life with Archie, this saga will delve into another possible future for the redheaded Romeo, allowing readers to decide whether Archie’s better off with Betty, Veronica, or the rhythm section of the Pussycats.
Whichever way this goes in the end, we’re predicting one of the hottest rock romances in a long, long time. What do you think, iFanbase? Brody Dalle and Tim Armstrong or Brody Dalle and Josh Homme?
