Angel Catbird Volume 1
Lauded novelist Margaret Atwood and acclaimed artist Johnnie Christmas collaborate on one of the most highly anticipated comic book and literary events of the year.
On a dark night, young genetic engineer Strig Feleedus is accidentally mutated by his own experiment and merges with the DNA of a cat and an owl. What follows is a humorous, action-driven, pulp-inspired superhero adventure with a lot of cat puns.

Angel Catbird sits at the intersection Atwood’s love for superheroes, cats, birds, and mythology
The latest politically-minded story from legendary novelist Margaret Atwood
An eccentric and entertaining combination of a superhero comic (the title character is transformed into an animal that is part cat and part owl in a lab accident) and an appeal to consider the impact of cats on the environment.
A good cause, a great author, and a bizarre original concept.
If you were taking some time this week to sit down and try to figure out what award-winning author Margaret Atwood‘s next project would be, your first guess probably wouldn’t have been a series of all-ages graphic novels about a superhero who is part-bird, part-cat, and suffers an identity crisis because of his conflicting predator/prey nature. But really, it probably should’ve — she has, after all, pretty thoroughly conquered the world of novels, short stories and poetry, so when you get right down to it, comics is the next logical step.
