Witness Musical History With ‘Archie 75 Series: Josie And The Pussycats’ [Preview]
With Archie and Jughead already part of the reboot, Betty and Veronica on the way soon and Sabrina the Teenage Witch reimagined as a gothic Lovecraftian horror story, the one major title that seems missing from Archie‘s current lineup is Josie and the Pussycats. It seems almost inevitable that we’re going to get them at some point — especially considering that we’ve been due for a Josie revival for coming up on fifteen years now — but it doesn’t seem like one is planned.
Tthat doesn’t mean you can’t catch up on the classic adventures of Midvale’s greatest rockers with the latest installment of the Archie 75 Series. It’s a 75-page digital collection set to collect stories from the long history of the Pussycats — dating back to before they even were the Pussycats — and you can check out a preview below!
For the record, I think this one is actually missing that one story where Josie is literally possessed by the Devil. Maybe we’ll get a collection of those next!
Here’s the official solicitation:
ARCHIE 75 SERIES: JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS (DIGITAL EXCLUSIVE)
Celebrate the 75th anniversary of Archie Comics with this special retrospective presentation! When Josie first got her own title, she and Melody hadn’t started the famous band yet! It wasn’t until #45 of the series that they met Valerie and donned their long tails and ears for hats. From there, the all-girl rock band catapulted into super-stardom, becoming one of the most beloved Archie franchises of all time! In this collection, we’ll take a look at the entire 106-issue series and their lives both on and off the stage!
