It’s issue 79 of King-Cat Comics & Stories by John Porcellino! This issue marks 30 years of this iconic comic, and it does not disappoint! These pages are packed full of formative moments from John’s childhood, a travelogue to strange places in Wisconsin, poetic comics about life and nature, and a profile of Pepper, the neighborhood squirrel! Gabrielle Bell contributes a four-page comic about visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art with John! But it doesn’t end there, the Top 40 has 65 items listed, and there are guest drawings of animals by Keiler Roberts, David Lasky, and Eleanor Davis in the Catcalls section!
This issue has everything that makes you love a King-Cat comic. John uses his deceptively simple drawing style and attention to a world that we overlook so often to amplify our senses and bask in the goodness life can offer.
