Comments: The Archies have a gig and it goes well enough but what is next for them.
The art is bland. When emotions are over played when they are shown.
The Archies band is suffering. They need to step it up.
Having Archie break the third wall is great to see. It is always nice to have a comic book character talk directly to you.
The story moves along slowly and not a lot happens. Yes the Archies do take their next step. They get set to be a serious band. The issue though is mainly just talk.
The characters other than Archie and Jughead are not used enough. Betty did not even have to be in the comic for the little she does in it. The comic is called The Archies it would be nice to have them all sharing the spotlight.
Archie does become inspired which he needs to be to lead the Archies to success.
