Captain Ginger – A Starship Run by Cats!

June 20, 2019 Purringtonpost

Last year we published some exclusive sketches of the CAPTAIN GINGER comic book, the space opera featuring cats in space. This month, AHOY Comics is publishing the graphic novel trade paperback which collects the entire story so far.

Now in one volume: the acclaimed tale of a starship run by cats!

The intrepid Captain Ginger struggles to keep his fellow felines united against a hostile universe—and their own worst feline instincts, too. Featuring the entire original miniseries, plus two rare extra stories and a sketchbook of character designs.

Introduction by Walter Simonson (Thor, Ragnarok) who says, “This book is steeped in cat lore, cat behavior, and cat knowledge.” Other comments include…

So wonderfully trippy and science fiction-y it reminds readers what it is about sci-fi that they love.” – Adventures in Poor Taste

Here’s a quote from writer Stuart Moore: “I love cats—even that stupid one cramming himself right now into my paper-recycling box, which you no longer fit into, Rocko! I cooked up CAPTAIN GINGER specifically for artist June Brigman, who loves cats at least as much as I do.

“Can you imagine your cat running a spaceship? Of course you can’t—the sweet little guy would just scratch up all the controls and then run around in circles until you fed him. But what if all nine of his lives depended on it? That’s the premise behind CAPTAIN GINGER. If you love cats too, I hope you’ll give our book a try.” – Stuart Moore.

We’re delighted to offer 10 copies of CAPTAIN GINGER for ten lucky Purrington Post readers to WIN!
