Wherever I go I’m always on the lookout for new, unique & fun cat themed items to feature on my website or write about on my cat blog. On my recent adventure at CatConLA 2016 I discovered something brand new for me- Hero Cats of Stellar City comic books!
How could I resist super hero cats! As I browsed the table full of the comic editions with colorful action packed artwork, I learned the backstory of the Hero Cats:
“The world changed forever when Galaxy Man & Cosmic Girl arrived in Stellar city. Villains soon followed, bringing with them minions, henchmen, and other assorted threats. While these super threats were being handled by the ever vigilant Galaxy Man and Cosmic Girl, it became necessary for the Hero Cats to deal to pick up the slack.”
Let me introduce you to the pack! Each one has a special talent for fighting crime and aliens and when you read the comics, you’ll also learn about their own special stories that brought them to where they are today.
Ace is the team’s ever brave leader.
Cassiopeia is the recent addition to the team. She is a truly clever tabby cat who is able to read human writing.
Rocket is the fastest cat in the world and might be from outer space.
Belle can read the human mind. There’s no fooling this feline.
Midnight has a passionate dislike of criminals and is able to jump to extraordinary heights.
Rocco is the mountain of muscle who never loses a fight. His heart is big and true.
Bandit is ever the charmer and is skilled at covert operations.
The comic is told by Cassiopeia, the smart orange tabby, as she joins the team and soon proves her value to their mission.
The books are written by Kyle Puttkammer who was in attendance at the show so I was able to get an autographed copy of my purchase. The fantastic artwork is a collaboration of Marcus Williams, Ryan Sellers, Omaka Schultz and Briana Higgins and the comic is published by Action Lab Entertainment. The team has worked on other comics, including a spin off of the adventures of Midnight Cat.
I fell in love with the cast of Hero Cat characters and found myself rooting for them during their daring escapades. This is such a fun book to escape into for a fantasy of a world where cats have super powers. Being a new reader, I bought Volumn 1 which includes the first three issues of the comic books. I plan to add to my collection and hopefully own them all!
