Katmandu

 KATM   (Antarctic, 1993-2006)

™ and ©1995 Carole Curtis

Although super-heroes are the predominant genre in comics, other types of narratives manage to hang on due to the passion of fans and like-minded creators. One such subgenre is the anthropomorphic tales loved by “furry afficionados.”

The name, Katmandu (the capital of Nepal) is tailor-made for this type of title. Katmandu, the comic, features realistic situations and dialogue, (more realistic than some super-hero comics), involving characters that resemble cats. In one story arc, a very pregnant Leah conveys the story of her ancestor, Liska, who was kidnapped by a highland raiding party and eventually embraced her captors.

The pleasing, engaging artwork by Terrie Smith conveys a wide range of emotions on characters whose faces are feline. This title is an obvious labor of love from writer, Carole Curtis, who interacts with her readers on the letters page as if everyone were a close personal friend. If you’re a dog person, there’s always Dalgoda.
