New Synopsis

Fresh out of art school and creatively unfulfilled, Molly is stuck in the suburbs with her parents and their cat, Pishi.

When she is offered an opportunity to cat sit, she sees it as a way to get closer to her friends who live in the Los Angeles Arts District while fulfilling her dream of making a living as an artist.

New Review

Molly Sanchez-Talebi, is a young woman, an art grad. She lives with her parents and their pet cat. She has plenty of dreams for her future, including one day being a full-time artist.

After drawing a cat portrait, a woman notices her work and offers her a cat-related job. She wants her to cat sit for her whilst she is away for the weekend. Needing the money, Molly agrees.

But what do you do whilst looking after cats for someone else? Crazy cats at that. Yep, you write a comic-blog about them!

I’m a bit older than the target market for this YA comic, and I also haven’t read a comic in around 25 years.

I can however appreciate a good story when I read one, albeit, this one is told in frames rather than full page text. The plot is highly amusing, and I can see comic book fans being fully engaged the whole way through.

I can also appreciate good artwork, and the illustrations throughout are superb. They are bold, and clearly give this comic the wow factor! I especially love the facial expressions.

It didn’t take me long to read, and it certainly kept me entertained from the first page, to the last. Molly is a great girl with lots of character, and a big ambition, but the cats stole the show for me.
