I Was the Cat by Paul Tobin and Benjamin Dewey

Someone will pay a good sum for her to ghostwrite his memoirs.  Her friend is concerned he may have ulterior motives.  She refuses to worry about and goes to meet him.  What she finds is a cat who can talk...

Diamond Book Publishers and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published August 5th, so make a note to pick it up then.

This is a graphic novel that is almost noir in style.  The cat shares the knowledge of his past lives and colors and how he has been a companion to those who wished to control the world.  The histories are short, cover major events, and all had a bad ending for the person he befriended and himself.  He wants to share these stories with the world so they will understand him.

Everything is going along very well until the ladies decide he's working on another plot to take over the world.  He even admits it.  He still wants her to write his story.  She says she has to think about it.  I'm afraid if she doesn't take the job, she'll be another statistic, but we won't find out until the next book comes out.

This was real different and is not meant for children.  It's an adult graphic novel.  And, while I didn't like the cat or his friends, I would read another installment in this series.  After all, he's on his last life.  Maybe he should be worried about the ladies...
