Comic Book Review: Archie Meets Ramones #1

In Archie Comics, Comic Books by Regan Lorie0 Comments

Archie Andrews is sort of like the Barbie of comics. The word on the street about Barbie (at least according to your mom’s key ring in the 80s) was that the bitch had everything.

Duff here… Black Hood is like stepping into a Charles Bronson film, written by John Milius, and directed by Sam Peckinpah. It’s gritty, violent and boiling over with testosterone.
