Folks who remember Josie McCoy as the irrepressible lead singer of Josie and the Pussycats will likely be surprised to learn that her 1960s origins don’t include her band at all. But Josie was still the same irrepressible girl — just with a different boyfriend and a whole new attitude. Keep reading to see some exclusive previews of the Archie comics collection She’s Josie, which includes the teen’s origin story.
Before she was a part of Josie & the Pussycats, she was just Josie! See how this world-famous rock star started out—as an average high school teen! With her BFFs, the ditzy Melody, and the quick & witty Pepper, Josie gets caught up in all sorts of misadventures. Check out this collection and meet her boyfriend Albert, the rotten Cabot twins Alex & Alexandra, and many more in this chronological collection of the classic 1960s series!
Featuring a cover by Dan DeCarlo and art and writing by various creatives, She’s Josie will be available on May 3.
