The Greatest Caton January 16, 2013 at 8:42 pm
New from Ninth Art Press, The Greatest of All Time comics anthology includes a 5-page comic drawn by me and written by my wife Rebecca. It is about our fourteen-year old cat, Po, who is the greatest cat I have ever met and therefore the Greatest Cat of All Time. I know a lot of people might claim that their own cats are the best but really, mine is. But we kind of understand the subjectivity of it all, and so the comic is not just about our cat but the universal Cat. But our cat is distinct to us; he is the cat of cats, the greatest signifier of all time.
Cocteau said a cat is the visible soul of your home, and we agree. And when we are homesick, we are really Po-sick.
Some of you simply do not understand cat lovers. It’s true. But you have been reading a comic strip about manatees, so chances are some people do not understand you either.
This anthology makes many bold claims about greatest things by other talented cartoonists like Dorothy Gambrell and Braden Lamb. You should give it a read, perhaps while drinking the greatest coffee of all time or sitting on the greatest toilet of all time. You won’t be disappointed.
Of course, if you are, it will be – guaranteed – the greatest disappointment of all time.
