Is there a cat-in-the-wild comic I do not love? Richard Short's Klaus is a very beautiful (Nobrow released it after all) "Peanuts" flavored comic based on rambling anti-adventure 4-panel grids. Where Steve Wolfhard's hapless Cat Rackham itches and worries his way in and out of trouble, Short's felines maintain a Papa Moomin sense of calm irrationality and a Pogo-ish tendency to contemplate. It's a weird widerness too, with human-form "rats" and ugly mug baby birds that remind me a little of Jon Lewis' True Swamp. Quality stuff. -EF
