What happens when alternative comics superstars meets the world of capes and cowls? The second issue of Marvel’s Strange Tales II that’s what! Things begin incredibly strong right out of the gate courtesy of a cover by Love & Rockets co-creator Jaime Hernandez. Long known for his ability to draw gorgeous women via his beautifully clean line work, it’s great to see him portray some of the ladies of the Marvel universe in his trademark style.
One does not necessarily have to be a cat person to agree with the statement that cats are little fluffy weirdos. This is a good thing, of course, and for many people (myself included) it is a big part of their appeal. The strange behavior they exhibit on a daily basis is an almost non-stop form of entertainment, one well-worth the price of having to clean out their litter box (the only unpleasant duty regarding an otherwise hassle free animal). To take true note of such oddness one only needs a keen sense of observation, and Jeffrey Brown, creator of the new book Cats Are Weird and More Observations, has been noting bizarre feline idiosyncrasies for a very long time.
