Bad Kitty is Back in the Big Easy!

Dynamite has announced the return of the former good cop turned zombie hunter, Bad Kitty. This action-packed new special is being written by Tom Hutchinson, with art by CB Zane, and colors by Chris Chua. It features multiple pulse-pounding covers from some of the hottest names in the industry. Fans can get their copy right now via Indiegogo!

Former Detective Katherine Bell has been away from New Orleans for a long time, but she and her cat Lucky return to hunt down a reported Skinwalker. But when her battle with the creature gets splashed all over social media, it catches the attention of the police who are still hunting Bad Kitty. All bets are off when the spirit she’s hunting takes over an even stronger body and Bad Kitty must team up with the city’s new detective to try and stop it. It’s an action-packed supernatural tale with teeth in the Big Easy.

Bad Kitty first appeared in 2001 as part of the Chaos! mythos, and made her way over to Dynamite in 2010. Katherine Bell was a good cop in the heart of a complicated Crescent City when what should’ve been a routine case brought her into conflict with the corruption on the police force. But it went deeper that that as elements of voodoo turned her lover into a zombie that was then sent to kill her. She turned in her badge and went hunting for those that ruined her life. And while they ended up dead, she became one of the FBI’s most wanted. Taking alias of Bad Kitty, she went on the run with nothing but her weapons and her black cat, Lucky, in an attempt to survive and to hunt down the supernatural wherever it lies.

Writer Tom Hutchinson, co-founder of Big Dog Ink Comics and writer/creator of Penny for Your SoulThe Legend of OzCritter, and Ursa Minor is reteaming with his partner, artist CB Zane who has also worked on The In CrowdInto the SuckWhispers in Necropolis, and Scorpiana, for this thrilling adventure that takes Bad Kitty back to her home town and forces her to deal with both her past and a crazy new creature of immense power.
