King Cat #69 by John Porcellino
This has to be the cheeriest King Cat I've seen in ages. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean that as an insult, but it's hard not to feel like you know John a little bit from reading his comics (probably stupid to think that, but it's still hard not to) and it seemed like a lot of things were going poorly for him. A return to cheeriness means, to my addled brain, that maybe he's doing better in his real life, and that's always good news. Stories in this issue deal with John telling an origin story of sorts of his taste in music, John and his wife getting two new cats (and many shorter pieces detailing their adventures, John's trademark (is it trademarked yet? The man should look into it) ability to see the beauty in the quiet moments, and the piece that made me laugh out loud, Comb-Over. As always with this man, checking out his latest work shouldn't take prodding, it should be a requirement for any thinking person who likes these funny books.
