Synopsis for "Josie and the Pussycats #1"Edit

Josie is singing in a mostly-empty bar where her friend Pepper works as a bartender. Her former friend, Alexandra, arrives to insult her and sneakily swipe her notebook. Pepper suggests she put together a band for the benefit concert the animal shelter's holding. Josie asks her roommate, Melody, but she says she's too busy to get back into music. That night on her date, however, she spies a stray cat and has a change of heart. The next morning at the shelter, the two meet Dr. Valerie Smith, a veterinarian who uses her singing voice to calm the animals. They ask her to join the band, and she agrees. At the concert, a lack of preparation makes them sound awful. Alexandra tries to further sabotage them by telling Valerie and Melody that Josie's intentionally upstaging them; but when they confront Josie about it, she apologizes and changes things to that they sound great. After the concert, Valerie and Melody come up with the name Josie and the Pussycats; they are introduced to music producer Alan M, who Josie is attracted to.


This issue includes a reprint of "Pussy Footing" from Josie and the Pussycats Vol 1 45.
