Writer Rob Worley has provided ROBOT 6 with a preview of Scratch9: Cat of Nine Worlds #2 that includes an exclusive first look at the cover by Herobear & The Kid creator Mike Kunkel.
Debuting in 2010, the Eisner-nominated kids comic follows the adventures of a young, naive cat who can summon any of his eight other lives for help. Drawn by Joshua Buchanan, Cat of Nine Worlds kicks off in June with a new adventure from Hermes Press that finds the villainous Dr. Schrödinger allying himself with Strick (introduced in next month’s Free Comic Book Day Special), who could shape up to be Scratch9’s greatest foe. (Full disclosure: Worley is CBR’s lead developer.)
Available now for pre-order (Diamond code MAY14 1449), Scratch9: Cat of Nine Worlds #2 arrives July 2.
