Friends, countrymen, lend me your long tails and ears for hats—the Pussycats are back! In this series kick-off, Josie’s getting the band together to help achieve her dreams of musical stardom. But for the group to last, it needs a strong foundation of friendship and trust. Can the girls get going, or will Alexandra’s plotting put a stop to the whole thing?The Riverdale revolution continues with the September launch of the new Josie And The Pussycats title by Archie Comics.
As has become their trademark of late the title comes with copious variant covers when it arrives on September 28, only four of which are highlighted here.
The adventures of Josie, Valerie, and Melody will be brought to life, initially, by co-writers Marguerite Bennett (DC Comics’ Bombshells), Cameron DeOrdio and artist Audrey Mok (Heroine Chic).
This launch comes on the heels of other ‘New Riverdale’ re-launches such as the stellar Archie, the hit-and-miss Jughead, and next month's eagerly-awaited Betty & Veronica from the legendary Adam Hughes.
I was unsure about Josie And The Pussycats until I saw the prominent Shonen Knife poster in the picture below, and knew this was a comic I had to check out.
Shonen Knife were the first Japanese band I fell in love with, and actually saw live back in 1992, at the University Of London Union, with Matt and Nick.
