One of 2016's best comic books makes it 2017 debut early next month when Josie and the Pussycats #4 takes the band to Rome.
And Archie Comics has provided ComicBook.com wih an early sneak peek at the issue, which you can see in the attached image gallery.
It's an unlettered preview, so the exact situation is impossible to read, but it sure looks like the band is foiling a jewel heist while Josie and Alan M. make googly eyes at one another.
We're hoping for another instance of our favorite sound effect of the year: "COMIC BOOK SCIENCE!"
You can check out the official solicitation text below.
JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS #4
The Pussycats’ careers really start to take off as they head off to Rome for glitz and glamour! But what happens when a gang of diamond thieves bursts onto the scene? And will Josie and Alan M’s dynamic sparkle under the heat and pressure of life on the road? Or will Josie’s hard-as-diamonds ambition CUT THEM ALL TO RIBBONS?! Find out in Issue 4, “THREE CATS BY A FOUNTAIN.”
