A genetic engineer caught in the middle of a chemical accident all of a sudden finds himself with superhuman abilities. With these new powers he takes on the identity of Angel Catbird and gets caught in the middle of a war between animal/human hybrids. What follows is a humorous, action-driven, educational, and pulp- inspired superhero adventure--with a lot of cat puns.

Praise for The Complete Angel Catbird

"Angel Catbird is a triumph of genre play, a superhero comic book that looks like a superhero comic book, reads like a superhero comic book, but gleefully capsizes all the usual notions of what a superhero comic book should be."--NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO

"The latest politically-minded story from legendary novelist Margaret Atwood."--WIRED

"An eccentric and entertaining combination of a superhero comic . . . and an appeal to consider the impact of cats on the environment."--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"A real trip . . . Half cat, half bird, half pulp adventure, and half environmental treatise."--POLYGON

"Channels the storytelling sensibilities of series like Captain Marvel, Dick Tracy, and Pogo."--AV CLUB
