Margaret Atwood, Johnnie Christmas con Angel Catbird Volume 1
Internationally best-selling and respected novelist Margaret Atwood and acclaimed artist Johnnie Christmas collaborate for one of the most highly anticipated comic book and literary events of 2016! A young genetic engineer is accidentally mutated by his own experiment when his DNA is merged with that of a cat and an owl. What follows is a humorous, action-driven, pulp-inspired superhero adventure-with a lot of cat puns.
"That sounds like an awful lot to pack in, but Atwood's breathless love for both the form and subject matter, combined with expressive art by fellow Canadian Johnnie Christmas (who beautifully captures Strig's evolving feline body language), make Angel Catbird a rather jolly adventure." --The Guardian
"September is turning out to be a terrific month for great contemporary writers making their comics debut." --GQ
Praise for Margaret Atwood
"Margaret Atwood takes risks and wins." --Time
"Atwood is a poet." -- The New Yorker
"Atwood's prose miraculously balances humor, outrage and beauty. A simple description becomes both chilling and sublime." --The New York Times
