Comic Book Cool Cats

It’s kitten season (April-October) and cats are absolutely everywhere right meow, including in just about every type of comic book or manga story you could imagine.

In Cat Massage Therapy by Haru Hisakawa, world weary workers find relief from the most unexpected of feline massage professionals.

Catboy by Benji Nate sees Olive’s wish to hang out with her cat Henry “like a person” come very precisely true, when her best cat friend becomes her best cat-person friend. Adulting and style abound in this hilarious and beautiful collection of the weekly webcomic.

A Man and His Cat by Umi Sakurai is really all in the title. An older gentleman adopts a seemingly unwanted cat from a local pet store. Does each have what the other is looking for? Read on and find out in this purrfect slice-of-life manga!

In the expansive world of steampunk, magic, and animal human hybrids of Monstress by Marjorie Liu, Sana Takeda, and Rus Wooten, cats play a powerful and central role: as both historian poets as well as secret guardians of order and peace.

Saga by Brian K. Vaughn and Fiona Staples is perhaps the most popular non-superhero adult audience comic book in the last decade: a dramatic, gorgeous space adventure, full of action, heartbreak, and treachery. Lying Cat, however, cuts through all of the chaos and the spin, and will notify you, in fact, if you are “lying.”
