The writing is awful. They're so angry, hateful and violent over the dumbest things. And the abuse the male characters take (and how they're written to be 95% scumbags or dumb) is really offensive. Most of the new Archie Comics have been pretty bad in the writing department and the art department. (Although I would say the 'Archie' comic is an exception, but they're putting that on """hiatus""" too - which means we'll never see it again.) Obviously, Archie Comics doesn't have the money (or the drive to make money with their comics) to hire top talent, but they're sticking to the writers who have been criticized for their inferior past works or people with no experience writing comics.
I was 100% ready for biker gang Riverdale girls but it was just more wasted potential. At this point, I think they're just making comics to maintain their IPs and they are depending on their WB tv series partnership as the future for Archie "Comics."
Also according to Comichron they are selling (or distributing) between 1,000 - 1,500 issues a month...that's pretty bad. That's way less than what the 'Josie' comics sold and that reboot was cancelled so fast they changed the artist in the middle of the second-to-last-issue to bring her on the 'Archie' comic. So no surprises this is ending.

Ouch, this is bad news. The way they're advertising it led me to believe they were brand-new stories. (Well, I guess, technically they are lol...) Thanks for the heads-up as usual.

I didn't find it funny that you didn't get the story because I had the same problem with her. Sorry if it sounded like I was laughing at you - I deal with stuff by making fun of the situations I find myself in.
I feel for you, Mr. Lodge.
Maybe we should all just meet her in a dark alley with our money.

Thanks for posting all this info, DeCarlo.
I was bummed-out about not being able to get the new collection, but it looks like most of those stories are reprints from other collections or stuff I have already so now I know I can hold off on it for awhile.
Ha ha ha you have about 17 more Josie loving years on me Vegan, but I gotcha. Honestly I love this series, this is the only time I have ever had any sort of disappointment towards it.
Too bad not a lot of other people are reading it. I just saw the final sales numbers for the last issue - less than 6,000 total issues sold.
I am pretty annoyed at the whole Alan/Alexandra thing. They have no chemistry and neither of them had any interest in each other in the previous issues. Also the way Josie treats Alexandra because of it is so petty to me. Josie gave Alan up - now she likes him again because Alexandra is with him?? That stuff drives me insane.
But maybe it's just me. Maybe it's because growing up as a woman all my boy-crazy friends were constantly causing drama within our group over some 14 year old boy who had no interest in being in a long-term relationship (and honestly I can't blame the dudes lol).
Also, I am overly protective of Alexandra as a character, especially this version of her. It's probably not normal lol.
Otherwise, dang the Archie gang looks good drawn by Audrey Mok.
Queen Alexandra wanted me to announce that Chapter 4 is up
(The Queen's Meloxandra army continues to grow...)

It's probably some sort of spam thing. "He" was trying to post links before.

Thanks for getting that info, Vegan. I saw this coming, but it still hurts.

Where did they confirm it? Do you have a link?
I may just be in denial, but to me that article could mean #9 is Mok's last issue or it is the end of the series altogether.

Cool story spam bro.

That would be my dream come true. Also I looked back on the 'Best of' collection I just posted about and it only had 300 pages of content, so if this book comes out, there's 300 more pages. (And who am I kidding, I'm going to buy it anyways.)
Archie Comics advertised it on Tumblr saying it would come out 2/8 and then they never posted about it again. I guess that doesn't count as official soliciting though, but it made me feel silly/like a liar after I reblogged it on my blog lol
Honestly though I think the best 'Pussycats' collection we're going to get (unless they collect the entire series) was the digital one they released a year or two ago, 'Best of Josie and the Pussycats: Greatest Hits!'.
The next digital collection they released just re-hashed titles from that collection and threw in some comics they repeatedly published in the digests.
I could be wrong, but I'm not expecting it to come out at all at this point. It's been delayed several times without any announcement already even though Archie Comics was advertising it on Tumblr and other social media websites.
My friend, Queen Alexandra, wanted me to announce that Chapter 3 is up
