ANGEL CATBIRD, the first graphic novel by Margaret Atwood, the Man Booker Award-winning author of The Blind Assassin, The Handmaid’s Tale, and The Heart Goes Last. For her first graphic novel, Atwood is collaborating with artist Johnnie Christmas (Sheltered) and colorist Tamra Bonvillain (Doom Patrol) for a weird and wonderful tale about a part-cat, part-bird superhero. Timed to Atwood’s appearance at the American Library Association Conference in Orlando, FL this week and ahead of her appearance at San Diego Comic Con next month, Dark Horse Books has revealed the first look inside ANGEL CATBIRD.
"I grew up in the 1940s drawing comics, and I've continued: I even drew a strip in the 1970s. So what better way to explore cat/bird interactions and the welfare of both than through a flying catbird superhero? I'm thrilled to be working with Johnnie Christmas, who can draw way better than I can!" said Margaret Atwood.
