Josie and her best friend Melody start a band with Melody’s veterinarian, Valerie. Josie is an ambitious dreamer, Valerie is practical and brings Josie back to reality, and Melody loves animals. They get picked up by an agent and tour the world. Adventures ensue.

This series is *extremely* funny and entertaining, but has no plot whatsoever. Josie does something stupid out of ambition and Valerie reminds her of the value of friendship. Melody loses it over a kitten. Villains include music venue staff wielding contracts with exploitative fine print, animal traffickers, and Josie’s rich ex-bestie. A fun diversion but nothing deep. The artwork is fantastic.

This volume also includes Jughead #9. I’m no Jughead fan, but this issue was written by Ryan North, and boy is it charming. There’s footnotes galore and it involves Jughead meeting Sabrina! My fave. I just might read more of this version of Jughead. ( )

Josie and the Pussycats as 20-somethings and the contrived freedom of "maturity" that it brings to the comic. Waaayy too reference-y. Like, every other line was a reference to something. The plots were over-the-top silly, which you would expect from the original comics, but now is perceived as trying too hard to be ironic. One extra star for Melody's encounter with "meth."

JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS VOL. 1 is the first collection of an all-new take on the world's biggest comic book band. Marguerite Bennett (DC Comics' Bombshells, Marvel's A-Force) and co-writer Cameron DeOrdio team with Audrey Mok (Heroine Chic) to retell the origin and story behind the music for Josie, Valerie and Melody. 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 Cabot's plotting put a stop to the whole thing?
