So, what have y’all been up to since last month’s mew? I understand that there was a big wonderful surprise for Nyanko and her family!
 
Nyanko:
Hai hai! We were unexpevtedly reunited with our aunt who had been missing for decades! It is the long story, but she is great and staying at my place until things settle down! She has been helping at my dojo and at my sisters’s magick shop! They might join us later for our AfterMew luau! So how is Tara-chan enjoying her first semester of the college?
 
 
Yvonne:
She is having so much fun with all of her classes, which are taking up most of her time but she still takes care of her pony and our cats and since she is still living at home I stil see her every day, nya! Ottherwise I have been purrcussing with my drumming circle, and my charters have been reeling in the bumpurr crop of the big fish, nya!
 
Elizabeth:
When Becca and I have not been papmurrin the customers at our spa, we have been gardening, hot salsa dancing; binge-watching the videos such as Soni-Ani: Super Sonico, Garden of Words, Momo Kyun Sword, Dream Eater Merry, Naisho no Tsubomi… and we had the supurr time at the annual Hallween Trick ‘r Eat and Cosplay Purrowl!
 
Trini-chan:
Hai it was the fun festive time, and as Myayr, Carerratia and Janyczsazsa did the magnificent job in supervising our costumes, which this year were of the goddess characters of the Smite video game! Otherwise since last month’s Mew I have been surfing, board shaping, caring for my pony, and teaching the beginners’ belly dance class!
 
Mary Nyan:
Arigato! October is the busiest month for Carerratia, Janyczsazsa and I making the costumes for the cosplayers! Currently we are sewing costumes of Iroha, Mina, Mai, Nakoruru & Rimiruru of Samurai Showdown. Aside from that, I have been teaching the hula dance classes and I greatly enjoyed the latest exhibits at the art mewseum!
 
Petra:
Arigato, nya! We had the record high attendance for our annual special exhibit of the macabre illustrations, photography, sculptures, jewelry and body art for Halloween, nya! Thusly, we wish to thank all of our mewseum’s staff, volunteers, patrons, and our community of artists, nya!
 
Bunni:
We are currently preparing our next special holiday exhibit, and coaching at the beach volleyball camp!

 

We are grateful for the staff, officials, the fans, the purrents and our fellow athletes! I have also been tending to my garden, and I have brought the carrot cakes for the AfterMew!
 
Jeannie:
As mewsual, my routine is the monthly weekend swimwear modeling, weekday mornings at the yoga studio, afternoons at the kyudo range, alternating evenings teaching the advance bellly dance classes and purrsiding over the Robotics Club, whose spooky animatronics functioned quite splendidly for the Halloween attractions. Back to Mike.
 
Mike:
Oh, the usual art, writing, reading, running the virtual 5ks, watchin stuff, and spending time with family and friends! I was on the mainland, so I didn’t do much for Halloween this year, aside from watching more horror movies! I especially liked the evening of Peter Cushing movies on TCM! Ah, speaking of movies, let’s go ahead and jump into the-

movie, TV, DVD & Blu-ray reviews, with Jen’s review of the
Strike Witches 501st Joint Fighter Wing: Take Off! Blu-ray!
 
Jeannie:
Hai. It is hard to believe that the wonderful Strike Witches franches of manga & anime has been around for over the decade. Set on the alternate Earth where World War II was fought not bewixt the countries but against the extraterrestrial invaders, this Japanese anime  stars the squadrons of international aerial soldier girls who transform into the kemonomimi of various species when their magickal powers activate.
 
A fine example of the “deiselpunk” genre, the series is known for its delightful characters, beautiful artistry, thrilling aerial combat action, fun slice of life scenes, historical technical detail, great mewsic, and fan service aplenty. Released upon the Blu-Ray by Funimation Take Off is very different in format, length and style from the Strike Witches purrior seasons & movies, with the shorter tales, simpler animation, less fan service and more comedy.
 
Directed by Fumi Ito, it seems to be set sometime amongst seasons 1 & 2 and after the movie, and stars the returning Strike Witch aces Gertrud Barkhorn, Erica Hartmann, Mio Sakamoto, Yoshika Miyafuji, Minna-Dietlinde Wilcke, Lynette Bishop, Francesca Lucchini, Charlotte E Yeager, Sanya V. Litvyak, Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen, Perrine-H. Clostermann, and Hanna-Justina Marseille.
 
Totalling the 187 minutes, the 12 epurrsodes & OVA  are mainly set at their base in between the missions, with the amewsing plots purrtaining to the cooking, cleaning, shopping, relaxation and festivities. They are purrsented in the 1080p hi def video of the 16×9 screen aspect ratio with the Dolby TrueHD audio with the spoken language choices of the original Japanese and the English dub, with the oprional English subtitles.
 
The special features include textless versions of the opening & end credts sequences; the optional audio commentary for epurrsode 10 by voice actors Cheramie Leigh (Yosjika), Anastasia Munoz (Minna), Jamie Marchi (Shirley) and the ADR Director Jad Saxton (Perrine), who are amazed to be repurrising the roles after the 10 years. 
 
Another special feature is Michiko Yamakawa’s Strike Witches Classroom. Totalling nearly 15 minutes, these 13 widdle vignettes are like the slide-show in which Yoshika’s best friend Michiko (voiced by Sato Arise) peppilly introduces the viewers to the 501st and its members, so this is the good quick purrimer for those who are new to the Strike Witches. Nyow here is my purrotege Trin-chan to discuss the 
 
Star Trek: Picard Season One DVD.
 
Trini-chan:
Hai! Set 20 years after the movie 

Star Trek: Nemisis, this Picard series was shown earlier this year upon the 
CBS streaming service, and stars Patrick Stewart as the retired Admiral Jean-Luc Picard who gets caught up in the mystrious conspiracy involving Starfleet, the androids, the Romulans and the Borg! I think it is the terrific, poignant, fun and captivating series with the great story, performances, FX and the very high production values!
 
The great cast also includes

 Isa Briones as Soji, Evan Evagora as Elnor, Michelle Hurd as Raffi, Musiker Santiago Cabrera as Capt. Rios, Alison Pill as Dr. Jurati, Harry Treadaway as Narek,Jonathan Frakes as William Riker, Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi, Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine, Brent Spiner as Data and as Dr. Altan Soong, Jonathan Del Arco as Hugh, Peyton List as Narissa, Tamlyn Tomita as Commodore Oh, Jamie McShane as Zhaban, Orla Brady as Laris, and Lulu Wislon as Kestra!

 
The approximatey 8 hrs 8 min of the unrated nine nine episodes plus the over 2 hours of special features are upon the three Region One NTSC DVD discs, which are packaged within the plastic case within the outer cardboard sleeve.The video is of the 16 x9 screen aspect ratio in English Dolby Digital stereo or 5.1 audio with the optional English SDH subtitles. Each episode is accompanied by the Story Log which include inteviews  with members of the cats & crew & behind the scenes stuff.
 
The first episode “Remembrance” has the optional video commentary by executive producer / writer Alex Kurtzman, co-creator / producer Akiva Goldsman, show runner / co-creator / producer Michael Chabon, producer / director Hanelle M. Culpepper, and  co-creator / producer Kristen Beyer. The  8.3 min. Short Trek “Children of Mars” has the optional audio commentary by  Beyer., Kurtzman & producer / writer Jenny Lumet. 
 
There 6 deleted scenes, the gag reel, the “Make it So” promo spot, and the 5 featurettes: “Aliens Alive: The xBs” about the Borg character FX, “Picard Props” about the show’s props, “Set me Up” about the sets, “ and The Motley Crew” about the cast!  I was very pleased with the series and the DVD’s features which i will give an “A minus”! Now here is Nya-sensei to present our monthly
 
Celebrity Catgirl & Kemonmimi Spotlight!
 
 
Nyanko:
Hai! In this monthly portion of The Mew, we commeowmorate catgirls and other kemonomimi of the various species in the famous international mythologies and the popular cultures! They might include the shape – shifters, anthropurrrmorphic ladies, monster girls, and those who might not actually have beasty DNA, but do have the cat-titude or couture to be broadly considered by us to be “honorary” kemonomimi! 
 
This time we will shine the spotlight upon more that latter type musume of anime, manga & comics, who where tempurrarly depicted as kemonomimi, whether they were 

imagined as such by their friends, or just 

dressing the part on occasion! We will start with Fox, the sexy criminal femme fatale of the

Wanted comics by author 
Mark Millar, colorist Paul Mounts, artists JG Jones and Dick Giordano!!
 
In this six-issue miniseries published by Top Cow, the world is secretly ruled by the organized supurr villains. Fox is the African-American girl who became one of the most lethal assassins in the world , the girl friend and traainer of the tales main character Wesley, aka The Killer. Most of the time she does not wear the vulpine-eared headband, but she does don it for the special meetings and ceremonies!
 
Nextly is Ryuko, the titular purrotagonist of the Ryuko manga by Eldo Yoshimizu. She is the tough Japanese yakuza girl who fights the various governments and criminal organizations whilst searching for her kidnapped mom. With the long hair, dragon tattoo, Kawasaki motorcycle and the Nambu pistols, she is in the spotlight because of her Snow Leopurrd purrint tights with the plunging neckline! 
 
The Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky anime is the 15th chapter of the Atelier series of anime & video games, in which 15 year old Escha Mailer is the kind and peppy alchemist who wants to explore the ancient floating ruins in the sky! Part of her attire is the magickal clip-on tail made by her mom! It is Light Gray with the Black stripe and swishes according to her mood! 
 
In epurrsode 4 “It’s a Barrel! It’s a Tail!”, the tail has become so popular that she tries to mass – purrduce more tails! She might be the only tailed human t but there are other people who have the real tails, such as the artificially – created Homunculi who appurr to be the diminuitive hobbit-sized  anthopurrmophic critters with beautiful big bushy tails, who like candy, flowers and shiny things!
 
Initially created as the mascot for Nitro Plus, Super Sonico has since starrede in the video games, anime and merchandise! Voiced in japanese by Ayano Yamamoto and in English by Jessica Nigiri, Sonico or just Nico for short is the 18 year old college student, gravure model / idol star, singer and guitarist! In the anime, her mewsual outfit includes the cat-eared Gray Babby purrint hoody with the tail! In Epurrsode 10 she is imagined as the real catgirl during the mewsic video and during the end credits. 
 
In epurrsode 11, her friend Suzu cosplays as the renideer girl for Christmas! We also wish to commend Alex Wagner, the purrducer & co-host of Showtime’s The Circus, for the lovely leopurrd purrint blouse that she wore for the 16 October, 2020 episode of MSNBC’s show The Reidout, so we will consider her as the “honorary catgirl”! That is all for this month’s spotlight, but it will shine again next month, and nyow here is Myayr to begin
 
our comic book and manga mewsings, with her
review 

of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #90!
 
Mary Nyan:
Arigato! Mewsually Tara-chan reviews the pony comics, but I will filly in for her today! We love these comics which so faithfully capture the style and spirit of the animated TV series, but with the different strengths of the comic book medium! it is hard to believe that the Friendship is Magic animated series started ten years ago, and that the pony comics have been around for the eight years!
 
They have the great stable of the artists, writers, editors, colorists and the letterers, such as this issue’s writer Jeremy Whitley, artist Andy Price, colorist by Heather Breckel, letterer by Neil Uyetake, cover artist Brenda Hickey, editor Megan Brown, and group editor Bobby Curnow, nya.  Heather and – and Neil have worked on almost every issue, and I think Bobby has worked on them all!
 

We have met Jeremy at several of the conventions and Free Comic Book Day events! Jeremy has also written many other comic books such as My Little Pony, Rainbow Brite, Vampirella, Sea of Thieves, Thor vs Hulk, Freedom Foundation, The Unstoppable Wasp, and he is the creator and the author of Princeless, Princeless: Raven the Pirate Princess, and School for Extraterrestrial Girls! 

 
This tale continues the story arc from the Free Comic Book Day 2020 issue, which started season 10 of Friendship is Magic, because the animated TV series ended after the season 9.  I wish that seasons 8 & 9 would be relased on DVD! This issue is purriced $3.99 and has the uninterrupted 22 page tale followed by the 8 pages of the ads, all sammiched betwixt the choice of the different covers!
 
Cover A is by Andy, cover B is by Brenda Hickey who we have met, and the scarcer retailer incentive cover is by JustaSuta! Purreviously in Season 10, Twilight Sparkle began her reign of Equestria and sent the four teams on diplomatic missions to different regions. Thus far we have followed the team of Applejack, Zecora,Tempest Shadow and – and Rockhoof to Zecora’s homeland Farasi.
 
However, the mewsually smart, wise, optimistic and purragmatic zebra is not happpy to return to there, and in issue #3 we learn why, in the flashbacks of her origin tale, whuch explains her expurrtise with potions and her tendency to speak in rhyme! Also appurring are Mayor Marini, Purrince Abraxas, Ms. Alegre, Medley Brook, Crystal, Rose,and Dust Devil. 
 
 I loved the plot, pace, dialogue, developments, poses, expurressions, compurrsitions, details, fonts, color and graphic FX! Some of my favorite bits are the homage to Bob Kane’s Batman, the impurressive  full-page scene of the Grootslang attack, and yunger Zecora reading the Ogres & Oubilettes RPG book by K. Cook (purrsumably a cute nod to artist / author Katie Cook)!
 
I should not further spoil the plot, but I will just add that it is to be continued, so i am looking eagerly forward the next issue. I also like how the flow of the Pony tales are not interruped by the ads, and I wish that all other comics did it that way! Meanwhile,we are also rather curious to see what the other three displomatic teams are up to!
 
The team of Rainbow Dash, Spitfire, Lyra Heartstrings, Sweetie Drops and Captain Celaeno  have gone to Parrot Peaks; the team of Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Discord, Trixie and Capper have gone toto Abyssinia; and the team of Rarity, Big McIntosh, Maud Pie and Mage Meadowbrook have gone to the Diamond Dogs Kingdom; whilst Spike and Twilight Sparkle remain in Canterlot. 
 
I will give My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #90 the “A” as in Applebuck, and also for my aniticipation for the pending 100th issue of this series! I wonder what special plans they might have to commeowmerate that? That is all for this month’s pony report, so nyow i will turn The Mew over to Lizzy, who wants to tell us about
 
Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey Book Three!
 
Elizabeth:
Hai! Created by Bruce Toimm & Paul Dini. Dr. Harleen Quinn alias Harley Quinn is the psychologist turned criminal and former girl friend of The Joker. Shewas been living with friends in Coney island, until she was delinquent on the mortgage on the building which the loan sharks arsoned it, so nyow she needs money for the new home and her hospitalized friend Tony, so she cleaned out The Joker’s treasure vault!
 
She had help from  Atlee a.k.a Terra! Not only were The Joker and his current purrtner Syn displeased, but so were other villains such as The Penguin, Riddler, Two-Face, Clayface, Mr. Freeze and The Scarecrow, whose loot was also in the vault! Hence there is the huge contract on Harley, so The Birds of Prey team has to purrotect her! They include The Huntress, Cassandra, Black Canary, and Detective Montoya.
 
That brings us up to the 3rd issue of this mini-series which is of the 32 page, squarebound 8.5×11” format from DC Comics’ Black Label impurrint of comics that are not for the widdle kitties, purrhaps due to the adult themes, harsh language, sexuality and violence. Purriced $5.99, the tale was written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner whose Power girl and Starfire comics we greatly enjoyed!
 
Amanda is the artist, with colorist alex Sinclair and letterer John J. Hill. The issue is in the choice of two different covers, the main cover by Amanda & Alex, the variant cover by Ian Maconald! Also appurring in this issue are Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred and Harley’s girlfriend Poison Ivy! Appaurrently The Batman is out of town during this incident, so I wonder if he is away on a misson with the Justice League?
 
That is too bad, because It is the relentlessly wall to wall action as The Joker, Syn, The Penguin, Riddler, Two-Face, Clayface, Mr. Freeze, The Scarecrow, and many other thugs in Gotham City fight against Harley and The Birds! It is rather bloody and violent, brimming with the dark humor and foul language as Harlewy and The Birds seem to have the uppurr hand until the cliffhanger which i will not spoil!
 
I love every aspect of Amanda’s art, from the compurrsitions and poses to the expurressions and the details The colors are so richly vibrant, and fonts are purrfect for the dialogue and the sound FX, especially when the big “bat fights” erupt, in the homage to the 1966 Batman TV series & movie, so I will give this issue the high purraise! Nyow her eis Mike to discuss
 
Elfquest: Stargazer’s Hunt #4!
 
Mike:
Thanks Lizzy! Wendy Pini is one of my most favorite artists, and since the late 1970’s I’ve been a big fan of the Elfquest https://elfquest.com comics created by Wendy and husband Richard. It’s hard to believe that it’s over 40 years old, but still going strong after so many editions of comics, graphic novels, novels and short stories! 
 
Elfquest has such a beautiful rich, lavish history, mythology, world-building and generations of many great characters, and this current mini-series stars Skywise and Timmain’s peppy, precocious daughter Jink, who first appeared in her own 1994 series, which Stargazer’s Hunt is a prequel to.
 
Previously in Stargazer’s Hunt, Skywise lamented his late best friend Cutter (who died at the end of The Final Quest series), so Jink telepathically erased his memories of Cutter. She meant well, but this had a traumatic affect on Skywise’s mind, so he’s been traveling through the galaxy in search of answers.
 
By issue #3, years had passed and Jink drew to adulthood, while searching for her missing dad and visiting The World Of Two Moons where many of their friends and family reside. That brings us up to issue #4, which was published last month by Dark Horse. The issue includes the 20 page tale, plus 2 pages of fans mail and 6 pages of ads.
 
The tale was written by Wendy and Richard, with the art by Wendy’s protege Sonny Strait; lettering by Nate Piekos and cover art by Wendy. it was edited by Rachel Roberts, assistantly edited by Jenny Blenk; the issue’s design was by Skyler Weissenfluh, and the digital art technician was Allytson Haller. 
 
Jink and her half-sister Yun go on a whirlwind tour of the world, introducing Jink to the various tribes. She meets Nightfall, Ember, Leetah, her yougest son Goldruff, his wolf Darkdell, Ahdri, Two-Edge, Korafay, Snakeskin, Tier, Mirff, Pike, his son Sust, Picknose, Oddbit and Trinket!
 
It is a joyful time for them, but meanwhile things are still rather somber for Skywise, who awakens from his friend Thistlcap’s hibernation cocoon upon detecting a distant signal from yet another planet which he hopes is The StarHome, but that’s all I should reveal about the plot for now! 
 
I liked every aspect of this issue, from the major plot & character developments, to the sexy fashion designs and the lush scenery! The character, scenic and FX art, the compurrsitions and the graphic narrative are quite supurrb, with the great fonts and colors; and I’ll give this issue ( and the series thus far” an “A” as in Aroree! Ah, now here is Vonny to tell us about 
 
Fangs!
 
Yvonne:
Arigato, nya! Written and drawn by Sarah Anderson https://sarahcandersen.com the author of the web comic Sarah’s Scribbles and the book Herding cats, Fangs is the graphic novel about the romance between Elsie the peppy vampire girl and Jimmy the laid-back werewolf guy, nya! 
 
Published earlier this year by Andrews McMeel and purriced $14.99 USA & $19.99 Canada, it is the Black & White collection of the gag comic strips format, nya. It is very cute, sweet, amewsing, romantic, charming and macabre, brimming with vampire and werewolf humor, nya!
 
That includes the gags involving the blood, sunlight, full moon, silver, coffin, mirrors, fangs, canine behaviour and gothy Black attire, nya. I purrticularly like the expurressions and poses, and i think this would be a great animated series, nya! Elsie is 300 years old, but stopped aging at 26, nya!
 
The 116 page, 5 5/8” x 8 1/8” x 5/8” hardcover book is quite the attractive eye catch, with the elegant cover illustration, the wraparound “obi”, and the colored edges of the leaves all Black against the Red cloth-covered boards, nya!
 
The art director was Diane Marsh, the purrduction editor was Amy Strassner, the purrduction manager was Tamara Haus, and the editor was Lucas Wetzel, nya. That is all for our  comic book reports, and nyow here are Petra and Bunni to purrsent the latest—
 
additions to the Catgirl Island Mewseum of Art, nya!
 
Petra:
Hai! Galleries 1-8 of the mewseum display images by Mike, whilst Guest Art Galleries 1-5 display images by other folks with their purrmissions, nya. Some of the images are sexy, and some might depict artistic nudity, but most are tame and none are porn, nya! On Catgirl Island’s official web site, the most recent pics will be the lowermost row of the cropped widdle “thumbnail” sized portions of the pics in a gallery, and you have to click upon those to see the uncropped full pics, nya.
 
 
We are purroud to purrsent Mike’s pic of Nyanko & Nyoka’s aunt “Nyaomi, nya! Mike used Photoshop on the mac with the mouse for this Nyaomi who is the twin sister of their mom Nyadia, nya! Nyaomi was the original purropurrietress of the Magick Shop  but when she magickally rescued people from the supurrnatural storm in 1984, she disappurred into the mysterious maelstrom, nya.
 
She emerged in the purrallel dimension where time flows much faster than here, nya. She purrceived just the 10 minutes there, while missing for the past 36 years from here, so when she returned last month she appurred about the same age as her nieces, nya. It has been quite the joyful reunion, nya! She has the shape-shifting powers, and here she is depicted in her koi mermaid form, nya!
 
Nextly is Mike’s pic of “Boo Cat After Dark”, nya! Mike used Photoshop CC on the mac with the mouse for this fan art of Boo Cat nude in bed, nya. She is the were-cat girlfriend of Tarot the warrior witch and Licorice Dust the gothy vampire cheerleader in Jim Balent’s Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose comics, nya! She has the distinctive Jack O’ Lantern markings upon her fur because it was on Halloween when she became the alluring ailuranthrope, nya!
 
After that is Mike’s fan art of Dr. T’ana who is the Chief Medical Officer of the United Federation of Planets’s California-class Starship U.S.S. Cerritos NCC-75567 in the animated Star Trek: Lower Decks TV series, which is set in the year A.D. 2380, nya! Voiced by Gillian Vigman, Dr. T’ana is the catgirl of the Caitian species, like Lt. M’ress of the 1973 animated Star Trek TV series, nya!
