INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
Are you a cat person? Are you a comics person? Well then, we’ve found your catnip.
U.K. cartoonist Tom Fonder has announced a spinoff webcomic from his popular Happy Jar series focused on the adventures of a cat in a business suit titled, appropriately enough, The Adventures of Business Cat. The dapper cat was born in a one-off Happy Jar strip in January by Fonder and his partner Rachael Robins, and became a hit with fans, leading to this spinoff.
Fonder explains, “CEO. Business maverick. Cat. A shrewd businessman and hard-hitting executive, Business Cat is not afraid to milk the corporate cash cow for his taste of the big time. He pushes the envelope with his integrated approach, maximising leverage, downsizing, rightsizing and other business things. In his free-time, Business Cat enjoys relaxing on a 16 kt gold yacht and receiving belly scratches from high-end escorts.”
Although there’s no set schedule for The Adventures of Business Cat, the few strips Fonder has released so far have been amazingly hilarious — but maybe that’s the cat person in me talking.
