Josie and the Pussycats #7

Josie and the Pussycats #7 is a fun single issue story in which Josie, Melody, and Val begin to see the fruits of their recent success and make an important decision about what kind of band they want to be going forward. After their performance the band has to decide whether or not to stick around and possibly claim their award or skip out early and perform at a local charity concert for a good cause (leaving their manager to make an uncomfortable acceptance speech). Was their any doubt what the girls would choose?

Focused more on the threesome than some outside threat, there's still a bit of shenanigans here when the Pussycats discover their competition literally stuffing the ballot box in order to beat their rivals. This gives the issue a bit of action, but it's primarily focused on continuing to build on the friendship between the Pussycats as their star begins to rise.

I'm a fan of one-off stories like this one which is a nice change of pace given the age of longer arcs written mainly to help sell trade paperbacks down the line. Worth a look.
