Just when the Archies seemed like they were done for, everyone in the band was able to pull together to go out on tour. Things are looking up, but touring is not the dream they all thought it would be when you are a small time band looking to make it big. Driving in a crammed van hours on end is not very glamorous and without Veronica’s father willing to foot the bill, they don’t have any money for when things go wrong. Its Archie so you know things will eventually turn around even when the gang is having a difficult time. The journey leading up to that point is still the entertaining part as you see how each of them deals with the unlucky turn of events. Eisma is really able to capture the emotions of everyone while keeping things light and humorous at the same time. The issue ends with a tease of what big named band the Archies are going to meet which could lead to some interesting developments if handled right.
