I Was The Cat: Paul Tobin On Ghostwriting, Audrey Hepburn And The Sinister History Of Despotic Kitties [Interview]

I Was The Cat by Paul Tobin and Benjamin Dewey

In the pages of Paul Tobin and Benjamin Dewey's I Was The Cat -- a new graphic novel serialized weekly on ComiXology -- a young journalist is hired to ghostwrite the memoirs of an eccentric billionaire named Burma. The trouble, as you may have already guessed from the title, is that Burma is a cat -- specifically, a talking cat who has spent his last eight lives attempting to conquer the world. It's a great premise, but what Tobin and Dewey are doing in their story is interesting not just for bizarre feline histories, but for how dark and sinister a fluffy kitty who spends most of his time on-panel being petted by the other lead characters can actually be.

To find out more, we spoke to Tobin about the origins of the story, why you don't have to like cats to enjoy it, and the amount of research that he thinks a writer should be doing in order to create a proper history.

Hire This Woman: Cartoonist Kasey Williams

Untitled-1

In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”

Cartoonist Kasey Williams has been writing and drawing her own mini comics and anthologies for years while working on her first graphic novel. In the mean time she's also the artist on the webcomic Galacticat, which is also available in two print volumes.

Gerard Way Teases New, Cat-Starring Title, ‘All Ages,’ On Twitter

Gerard Way All Ages
Gerard Way

With the third and fourth chapters of The Umbrella Academy on the way this year, you'd think former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, who just wrapped up The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys at Dark Horse last month, would be plenty busy on the comics front.

But the writer and singer just keeps on revealing new character designs. Last week, he revealed images of three cats, Jones, Lemon, and Koko, who will apparently be the stars of a new series titled All Ages (which clearly won't be an all-ages book, because Jones is smoking; bad Jones!) Check out his tweets about the series after the jump!

‘Cat Versus Human’ Webcomic Captures the Dubious Pleasures of Feline Companionship

Cats, I'm convinced, are at war with humanity. It's not always obvious to human eyes, because cats fight this war with unconventional weapons: stinky poops, shredded clothes, hairballs, LOLCat memes and mind-altering cuddles. Cat
