Archie Comics has sent its star back in time in Archie 1955, a historical fiction series showing the gang as they would have lived back then, dealing with events surrounding the birth of rock ‘n’ roll. The publisher has shared an early preview of the fifth and final issue, due out next month.

This is it—the show-stopping conclusion of Archie’s rise to fame at the birth of rock ‘n’ roll! Archie’s star is soaring, but not everyone—even Archie himself—can handle his newfound fame.
