In Ellen Chao’s Cat Gang Comix No. 1, Wednesday is excited to let her friends know she got a job as a Mysterious Teen Hitman! Her friends are happy for her, and have some have news of their own. As their lives change, one thing remains the same: they don’t really want to talk about their terrible parents.
Ellen uses clean lines and a deft use of solid blacks and whites to create a charming and fun comic. Time spent with Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday, and their other friends is all too short.
