Josie and the Pussycats #6

Teased at the end of the previous issue, Josie and the Pussycats #6 involves Josie, Melody, and Val being arrested for plagiarism. Of course the people who take them aren't actually police. And the place they are taken isn't exactly a police station. Blaming Josie for his sister's unhappiness, Alexander abducts the Pussycats and takes the to his Antarctic hideaway to stand trial for crimes against his family.

While Josie and Val take their imprisonment in Cabotopia seriously, Mel is a little too amazed with the scenery, polar bears, and belting out lyrics from a certain Disney animated film to get too wrapped up in the reality that a mad man has taken them to one of the most secluded spots on the planet and means to do them harm.

Josie and the Pussycats #6 could have gotten very dark very quickly. Instead the arrival of Alexandra defuses the situation. A little brother-sister bonding gets the Pussycats sprung to continue their road trip of misadventures far away from the frozen confines of Cabotopia. Worth a look.
