Library JournalRiverdale High boasts two teen bands: The Archies, headed by Archie Andrews, and Josie and the Pussycats, headed by Josie McCoy. A joint multi-city tour featuring both bands leads Archie and Josie’s bandmate Valerie Smith to fall for each other. Naturally, rivalries and revenge schemes from various frenemies complicate their relationship. Not a permanent resolution of the Archie-Veronica-Betty triangle, this latest romance explores an alternate narrative for these characters similar to the Archie Marries Veronica / Archie Marries Betty plot arcs already appearing. The Valerie story continues with a four-issue miniseries in which Archie and Valerie marry and have a musically talented daughter. Tweens up.
