The first issue of the series had all new stories and all new art? There's a twist.

We turn, of course, to the all-knowing Wikipedia.

"Getting Together" is an American musical situation comedy, which aired on the ABC television network during the 1971-72 season. It stars Bobby Sherman and Wes Stern as Bobby Conway and Lionel Poindexter, a songwriting duo.

The pilot for the series had aired the previous spring as the first-season finale episode of The Partridge Family named "A Knight in Shining Armor", in which Lionel and Bobby were introduced to each other by the Partridges.

This was the next stage in Bobby’s career!

Lasted 14 episodes. Wikipedia says: While in the same "universe" as The Partridge Family, the series is not included on that show's DVD collections.

So it’s not canon.

By the way: Wes Stern doesn't even have a Wikipedia page. That's how much this show didn't matter. But it spawned a comic book - one of the most poorly-drawn you'll see. Not that the girls minded; that picture was worth two dimes. But still, they must have had hope.

Let's look at the book and see how those hopes were crushed. Utterly and completely.
