Captain Action Cat The Timestream Catastrophe #1 – AW YEAH Comics returns with a brand-new series from Dynamite Entertainment. The cross-over craziness strikes the AW YEAH universe as Action Cat must join forces with his counterpart from the Silver Age Captain Action Cat and heroes from the Dark Horse Universe to stop the ultimate Evil: Evil Cat and Doctor Evil Cat who plan to wreak havoc on the timestream. How much awesomeness can you pack into one comic? Classic action-figure adventure toy Captain Action as a cat, and Dark Horse heroes Ghost, C, Captain Midnight, and The Occultist in the hands of Eisner and Harvey award winners Art Baltazar and Franco. This can only mean more great comics for kids of all ages.
