Margaret Atwood’s Animal Kingdom Expands at Dark Horse

Dark Horse has purrfect additions for Margaret Atwood fans’ bookshelves! From the Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Handmaid’s Tale, comes War Bears, a historical fiction comic series that traces the Golden Age of comic books, and The Complete Angel Catbird, a trade collection of the #1 New York Times bestselling graphic novel.

War Bears is Margaret Atwood’s latest foray into the graphic novel medium alongside visual storyteller Ken Steacy. Steacy is an Eisner and Inkpot Award-winning creator and Canadian Comic Book Hall of Fame Inductee. War Bears follows comic book creator Al Zurakowski, who dreams of making it big in the early world of Canadian comics publishing. Al creates Oursonette, a fictional Nazi-fighting superheroine, at the peak of World War II. This three-issue miniseries explores the early days of comics in Toronto, a brutal war that greatly strains Al personally and professionally, and how the rise of post-war American comics put an end to his dreams.

The Complete Angel Catbird is a beautiful trade collection of the New York Times bestselling Angel Catbird graphic novel series. Artist Johnnie Christmas and colorist Tamra Bonvillain joined Margaret Atwood on the critically acclaimed three-volume series. Dark Horse published Angel Catbird in tandem with Keep Cats Safe and Save Bird Lives, an initiative led by Nature Canada, the oldest conservation charity in Canada. Angel Catbird follows the adventures of a genetic engineer caught in the middle of a chemical accident as he discovers new 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.

The first issue of War Bears goes on sale September 5, 2018 for $4.99 soon.

The Complete Angel Catbird goes on sale October 03, 2018. The 320-page trade collection retails for $24.99.
