Issue Notes

With this, the first issue of 1966, the "Josie" comic attempts to shed its early-'60s roots and become hipper; references to pop art and superheroes begin to pop up in the comic, and for the next few years it would constantly embrace new fads.

During a particularly cold winter, Alex whisks the whole gang off to the Cabot family's desert resort.
