Best of Josie and the Pussycats

Cute and fun–loving girl guitar group, sure. But groundbreaking cultural milestone? Actually, the animated Josie and the Pussycats were pretty revolutionary when they arrived on the scene, both in comics and in television, in the 1960s. “Girls with guitars” were rare, and few of the real–life groups resonated with the public. Josie and the Pussycats, in contrast, may well have inspired many of the female artists of the ensuing decades on the road to musical success. This collection features the girls’ first appearances, individually and as a group, as well as numerous key steps along the way in their careers. Meet their supporting cast, enjoy crossovers with Archie Andrews, and see how the comics changed over the years to keep up with popular culture.

Funny, light–hearted and clever, this collection shows the group with long tails and ears for hats to be far more relevant than most would imagine.
