I remember watching Josie and the Pussycats when I was a kid. If you’ve never seen it, it was this cartoon about young women with incredible figures who wore ears and tails and leopard-colored clothes. They were a band. And if there was any more to the show, I’ll be darned if I can remember it.

Guess I was always a rock-minded chick.

A month ago, which means in time for Valentine’s Day, Archie Comics has put out a graphic novel that plays with the idea of what if Valerie, the Pussycats’ bassist, and Archie get together.

From the book’s description:

They’ll have to harmonize to deal with rock band drama, reality TV and “real jobs.” But their biggest challenge will also be their most successful collaboration, when their daughter Star lives up to her name and her talented heritage. And of course, all the dreams and drama come laced with the classic comic mayhem we all expect from Archie!

How can you resist??? I sure can’t. None of us should have to. Pick up your copy!
