Celebrate the 75th anniversary of Archie Comics with this special retrospective presentation! When Josie first got her own title, she and Melody hadn’t started the famous band yet! It wasn’t until #45 of the series that they met Valerie and donned their long tails and ears for hats. From there, the all-girl rock band catapulted into super-stardom, becoming one of the most beloved Archie franchises of all time! In this collection, we’ll take a look at the entire 106-issue series and their lives both on and off the stage!
