Angel Catbird

by Margaret Atwood, Johnnie Christmas, and Tamra Bonvillain. Milwaukie, OR. Dark Horse Books, 2016

A genetic engineer, Strig Feleedus accidently spills a serum on himself, mutates into a man-owl-cat, and finds himself deep in a comic book pulp-inspired adventure fighting an evil rat-man who wants to gain the secret to the formula to turn the city's rats into rat-men and rat-women minions. Atwood provides us with cat puns and cat facts as she keeps us deeply entertained.
