    You don't have to be a cat person to enjoy this story of a feline from hell wreaking havoc on a young girl and her family. The creepy story will keep you invested and some innovative use of color will have you closely studying many of the panels. Read Full Review

    Tones of Stephen King intertwine with Lovecraftian-esque monstrous horror in this slow burn. Read Full Review

    Tyler Jenkins is doing some of the best work of his career on this series. The way so many of the panels are heavily framed in black, particularly the one-sided depictions of a therapy session, adds such a great, claustrophobic feeling. It really makes a strong script from Kindt sing. I'm very, very excited to see where we go from here.

    So going into issue 2 I knew what I was getting myself into. This disturbing story about a cat that attempts murder. I still don’t really know how to feel about the story since I love cats but this one is downright evil. From making the girls dad have a stroke at the end of issue 1 to what he does to the mom and the family in this issue. Then we have to discuss if this is all true or is the child crazy and committing these crimes herself she does believe the cat is talking to her and telling her things. So it gives me son of Sam vibes there. We still don’t know what happened that made her have to go to therapy.

    Overall been a decent book I a, anxiously awaiting issue #3. Which since I am so far behind in my reading I alread more
