Small press publisher Nakatomi debuts with Bad Cat Comics

by  in Comic News Comment

Although Marvel and DC may be trying to suck the air out of the room with event books, there remains a thriving independent comics scene, and as we enter 2012 so does a new publisher: Nakatomi.

Spinning out of a previously established nerd fashion online storefront, Nakatomi (named after Die Hard, I hope) is entering the comics fray with a comic by Tim Doyle titled Bad Cat Comics #1. This limited-edition comic promises a mad-cap chase book centered on an El Camino driven by cats carrying a shark.

An El Camino. Driven by Cats. Carrying a Shark.

Friend of the site Paul Maybury chips in on the book doing gray tones over Doyle’s work, with Nakatomi partnering with Austin-based literary/arts publication Minerva’s Wreck. Bad Cat Comics looks to be the most inventive comic of 2012 thus far. Check out an interior page sample below and then repeat after me: An El Camino. Driven by Cats. Carrying a Shark.
