Cat & Mouse (Aircel)

    (Aircel, 1990-1991)
™ and ©1990 Silverline

(From The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

A well-conceived series that established the writing skills of Roland Mann. Artist Mitch Byrd was considerably better by the end of the run, but retains a consistent look throughout, despite having a different inker on practically every issue. The story concerns a policeman who puts on a mask to become Cat, an ex-con who becomes his partner, Mouse, and a vet called Keith who happens to be a dog-like demon. Fortunately there’s not much by the way of supernatural happenings (apart from a subplot about an evil cult); instead the plot centers on the gangland battle for control of the city between the Yakuza and the Mafia. While Cat and Mouse struggle to clear themselves of a murder charge, the Yakuza send their own costumed fighters to kill policemen who’re on the Mafia payroll. A subplot featuring the romance between Mouse and Keith rounds out a decent adventure thriller. ~NF
