Cat and Girl. Cat and Girl! Cat and Girl has been a thing online since 1999, publishing three print volumes and 1,420 comics. Now finally (FINALLY!) we can make the comics from 2010 to 2015 available in print. That’s 536 full color pages of mostly black and white comics in two books. We’ve decided to call them Cat and Girl Vol. IV and Cat and Girl Vol. VDinotrux was taken.

 

In addition to every cartoon published online between 2010 and 2015, some thrillingly reformatted, the books include: Title pages! A song index! But no page numbers. There are no page numbers this time. We ran all out of page numbers.

Other gifts include:

A thing in an envelope. Mailed from me to you. There is no extra charge for disappointment.

Get the books with signed bookplates. Or not! Authors are immaterial.

Our new edition of M. Proust's Swann's Way in which all the madeleines have been changed to Mallomars.

The two new volumes plus Cat and Girl Vol. 1, 2 and 3. All with signed bookplates. Or not! That's every cartoon published on catandgirl.com from 1999 to 2015. Sixteen years. Sixteen years of our lives. 

A picture of you, drawn by me, however you want to define "you." Both physical and internet forms (You and I, of course, but the drawing as well).

The first Cat and Girl zine, photocopied way back in 2001. I found five copies. Here they are. With two pages of poorly thought out additional non-cartoon content.

A tin of things I had saved c. 1993-2000, no I'm not sure why (tin not included).

What kind of home could refuse this.

Risks and challenges

The books are all finished, we've spoken to the printer and seasoned kickstarter pros Make That Thing are helping out with order fulfillment & shipping. Everyone should have books in their hands in June.
