Josie, Valerie and Melody are collectively known as Josie and the Pussycats. Their adventures are always a good time and fans will get a glimpse at those adventures in new, ongoing series launching September 29th. Josie and the Pussycats #1 will be written by Marguerite Bennett and Cameron DeOrdio and illustrated by Audrey Mok. The series has been in demand for years and Archie Comics is happy to oblige.
“I am incredibly grateful and outrageously stoked to be working on JOSIE,” says co-writer Marguerite Bennett. “JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS is zany, high-energy, hilarious, and utterly sincere. The book can't launch soon enough.”
