Back in April, Archie Comics readers were given a special treat: a
guest-appearance by real live 20 year old identical twins Jess and Lisa
Origliasso, the hit singing duo who call themselves THE VERONICAS!
Inspired to name their group after Archie Comics' own "Veronica Lodge,"
the girls have managed to make a big hit on the comic racks, too, and
now they're back for an encore in ARCHIE & FRIENDS #100!
With natural born singing and songwriting talent, fantastic looks, and
a tough and edgy sound with hooks and harmonies galore, The Veronicas'
have created quite the buzz in music industry circles. Teaming with
pop music's top songwriters and producers, The Veronicas are basking in
the success of their sizzling debut CD, "The Secret Life of The
Veronicas." Featuring styles as diverse as rock, hip hop and R&B, this
collection of infectious pop confections is anchored by the duo's
unique harmonic blend.
Currently on tour across the U.S., Jess and Lisa have a special guest
along for the ride: Veronica Lodge! Be on the lookout for The
Veronicas' tour bus, featuring the likeness of comic books' favorite
rich girl painted on the side in an exclusive design created by Archie
In the story, "Where in the World are the Veronicas," that tour is in
danger of being cut short. The Archies think they've landed their
biggest gig ever, only to learn they've been entered in a "battle of
the bands" competing against The Veronicas. Unbeknownst to the
Archies, their new agent has hired a driver to pick up singing twins
Jess and Lisa at the airport and get them "lost"… and ends up picking
up Veronica Lodge, too! Will the girls be able to make it back in time
to perform? Grab your backstage pass for musical mirth and
mayhem-order your copy of ARCHIE & FRIENDS #100 today!
