|Behind The Music: Josie
& The Pussycats
|Babyhead Magazine started out as a mini-comic zine by artist Chris Jordan in
the early 90’s. The title was Jordan’s hyperactive mix of pop culture (mainly
from the 80’s), action and comedy.
One of the regular features in this publication was a parody of VH1’s Behind
The Music documentary series. Jem, Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids and other
Saturday Morning Classics where fodder for this running gag. The most
elaborate was a two parter on Josie & The Pussycats.
When the title got picked up and put into a regular comic format by Slave
Labor Comics in 2002, the Josie BTS piece was one of the few old pieces that
went with the transition.
As of today, the magazine has a web site, but, sadly, is hasn’t been updated
for quite a spell.
