“Female heroines kicking butt and doing good is right up our alley,” explained Patrick Brower co-owner of Challengers Comics. “The Anti Cruelty Society does really amazing things not only to enable people to take better care of their pets but also works to help communities understand and empathize with the animal world. The more you learn about animals the more you will want to protect them and do right by them. Doing the right thing and protecting the innocent is what Patsy Walker: Hellcat is all about!” Fun on a bun!
