Angel Catbird sits at the intersection Atwood’s love for superheroes, cats, birds, and mythology

Slate


The latest politically-minded story from legendary novelist Margaret Atwood

Wired


An eccentric and entertaining combination of a superhero comic (the title character is transformed into an animal that is part cat and part owl in a lab accident) and an appeal to consider the impact of cats on the environment.

Publishers Weekly


A good cause, a great author, and a bizarre original concept.

Blastr


If you were taking some time this week to sit down and try to figure out what award-winning author Margaret Atwood‘s next project would be, your first guess probably wouldn’t have been a series of all-ages graphic novels about a superhero who is part-bird, part-cat, and suffers an identity crisis because of his conflicting predator/prey nature. But really, it probably should’ve — she has, after all, pretty thoroughly conquered the world of novels, short stories and poetry, so when you get right down to it, comics is the next logical step.
