I WAS THE CAT


Writer: Paul Tobin


Artist:  Benjamin Dewey


 




On Sale:   8/6/14


Final retailer order deadline:  7/14/14




Diamond Code: FEB148185







Synopsis:Allison Breaking is a talented journalist with her own blog and a lot of bills to pay, so when she receives an offer from a mysterious stranger named Burma to write his memoirs, it’s an offer she can’t refuse, not even with all the red flags popping up. But Burma is quite literally unlike any man Allison’s ever known - because he’s a cat. And this cat has stories to tell about how he (over the course of a few lifetimes) has shaped the world - and another, darker story that Allison must risk all to uncover… a story of what this particular cat has been doing with the LAST of his nine lives.  

What People are Saying about I Was The Cat:


"What a great story that Paul Tobin brings. Oni Press has impressed me with this epic cat tale. Not only is it creative but it is highly entertaining. And Benjamin Dewey’s art is perfect for the story. If you haven’t seen pictures of the comic, you may think that the comic is cartoony since there is a talking cat and all, but instead the comic is realistic. Burma looks a real cat. Giving it this real time feel allows for us to actually believe in this story. I really couldn’t get enough of the comic. Burma is tantalizing with his motives. The audience will wonder what is coming next and who Burma influenced with each story. Get yourself a copy of this comic. Do it not only for cat fans everywhere, but for the pure domination this story has. Score: 5/5”- Comic Bastards 
 "5/5- This was an absolute joy to read. Full of dark humor, this book was entertaining. The art was colorful and easy to follow. I like it when I can actually tell characters apart. This story had several alternative historical tales that were enjoyable. I can’t say enough good things about this book.”- Goodreads

A UNIVERSE OF TERROR DRAWN TO ONE PANEL: ALIENS, PREDATOR, PROMETHEUS, & BEYOND

Nearly 30 years ago, Dark Horse rewrote the rules of licensed comics with the release of Aliens, continuing the story lines of Ridley Scott’s iconic film franchise. Predator and the iconic crossover Aliens Vs. Predator followed, with each series practically outselling the last. Now, the publisher partners with Scott again, to bring sci-fi epic Prometheus to comics. With just under two months away from the launch of the ambitious and highly anticipated crossover, Fire and Stone, Dark Horse editor-in-chief Scott Allie, writers Chris Roberson (Aliens), Joshua Williamson (Predator), Christopher Sebela (Aliens Vs. Predator), and the Prometheus team of Paul Tobin and Juan Ferrerya, reveal just what’s in store for this grand universe!

Paul Tobin would like to introduce you to Bandette

from PaulTobin.Net:

koala

If that’s true, I think I can solve the problem. You see, you obviously haven’t had enough Bandette in your life!Bandette is the most charming comic that has ever existed. It has drama, romance, action, and intrigue. It has thieves. It has GLORIOUS thieves. It has dangerous men and beautiful women. It has dangerous women and ugly men. And spies. And candy bars. Bandette is, in short, an Eisner-winning foray into the delightful garden of comics.
