Josie and the Pussycats #2

The music stardom of Josie and the Pussycats gets off to an inglorious start as Josie, Val, and Mel hit the road for their first concert outside of Riverdale. Excited to be a traveling band for the first time, the girls get a rude awakening when their first show turns out to be a dive bar full of bikers and criminals who attempt to trick the band into agreeing to stay indefinitely almost ending the Pussycats' journey before it even gets started.

With a little gumption, some questionable science, and a whole lot of driving skill, the Pussycats challenge the locals to a race where the ladies earn their freedom and the right to continue their tour with a more modest conception about life on the road and the struggle to become famous.

Archie Comics delivers another fun issue featuring the musical trio, and I love the art by Audrey Mok. Here's hoping the Pussycats stay on the road a long, long time. As with the first issue, Josie and the Pussycats #2 also includes a bonus classic Josie and the Pussycats story as well. Worth a look.
