    Captain Ginger is a lot to take in. I like it but it was also kind of overwhelming with all that it was trying to present to us. The large concept has plenty of room for exploration that can make for some crazy times ahead but it also digs into some decent character material with how cats would resolve it as they struggle between their old lives and their new. Stuart Moore has a lot he wants to accomplish going by how packed this issue is and I hope we get a chance to slow things down just a bit. But I'm really just in love with June Brigman's artwork as seeing the arc of her career over the years bring new elements into it. The characters look fantastic and I'm interested in all the mechanical design as well where it's really quite well detailed with some neat elements in how the cats interact with it. It's a curious book that I hope can really find its potential but it's definitely something worth checking out just for the surreal and wonderful execution alone. Read Full Review

    If you're an individual who enjoys cat memes, this is a comic for you and though I'm not really a fan at all, I still found the comic entertaining. It's a prefect mix of cat jokes and space adventuring that sets up a world I want to find out more about. It's another win for AHOY Comics continuing their manta that we should expect more.
