FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MAGGIE THE CAT RETURNS
I’ll retire when they pry my pencil from my cold, dead fingers.”
There are big things happening for comic book legend Mike Grell and his legion of fans.
As one of the pioneers of creator-owned comics, Grell wrote and illustrated some of the industry’s most popular independent titles. Including Jon Sable, Freelance, Starslayer, Shaman’s Tears, Bar Sinister and Maggie the Cat.
Maggie the Cat, the story of a lady cat burglar pressed into service by British Intelligence, first appeared in the pages of Jon Sable, Freelanceand has continued to make guest appearances over the years, but Maggie’sown title ran only two issues before falling victim to the industry-wide crash of the ‘90s and fans have long hoped to see the story completed.
The wait is over.
Grell announced plans to launch a Kickstarter to fund the completion of the unfinished Maggie the Catseries with new pages and elements from Grell’s finished screenplay added to the original issues which will be repackaged as a 64-page deluxe square-bound book. It will be followed later in the summer by a second 64-page volume, concluding the action-packed tale with a special guest appearance by Jon Sable, Freelance.
The perks are pretty epic too: Variant covers from comic fan favorite Chad Hardin (Harley Quinn) and Stephen B. Scott (Batman, Indiana Jones) will be offered as exclusives to Kickstarter along with art prints, T-shirts, original art and even the chance to be drawn into the story as a character.
Not only is this Kickstarter launch a collector’s dream come true, it’s the ultimate package for fans of Mike Grell.
Stay tuned for more details.
