Comments: Archie is trying to get the band playing as a band. Now Sabrina gets involved so you just know magic is in the air. Sabrina is not used much just enough to provide a way for the story to work.
The art comes across as to vague or plain for the Archie characters and is especially noticeable on the faces. The art was serviceable, meaning it is ok. Some more detail in the faces would look good.
So what better way to come together as a band than to have a bad show them what that means. The Ramones do give a performance. The Ramones are drawn looking rather cool just as you expect them to look.
They use the word whoa to much in this comic. Lots of comics are though so it must be the in thing.
Archie and the rest of the Archies learn a valuable lesson. Its better to just have fun and enjoy yourself than to be competitive.
You will find yourself saying “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go!”
