Preview: Scratch9: Cat of Nine Worlds #3
Here’s a look at the third issue of Rob Worley and Joshua Buchanan’s Scratch9: Cat of Nine Worlds. As we revealed exclusively in March, Worley has planned a whole series of covers by guest artists, the first by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles artist Kevin Eastman. This issue will be out in August and can be pre-ordered from the June Diamond Previews catalog. Here’s the blurb:
Scratch’s surprise encounter with a past aspect takes a grim turn as he faces losing one of his nine lives again. Then he’s thrust into a overly-dramatic 19th century struggle between the mysterious cat hero “The Mauve Bravadeer” and the so-called “Phantom of the East London Theater.” And will Penelope makes a new BFF in the evil cat Strick? (not likely). All this and cover art by “Bodie Troll” creator Jay Fosgitt!
