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.

Synopsis
During a particularly cold winter, Alex whisks the whole gang off to the Cabot family's desert resort. Josie and Pepper like being away from the cold, but there's one disadvantage: in warm weather, Melody doesn't need to cover up, and with Melody in bathing suits, no one's paying any attention to them.
