Today’s Mew comes from our friend Dr. Dach Savage’s mansion on the southwest sound – side of Catgirl Island, where it’s a slightly breezy 78 degrees under a Blue sky and puffy Cumulo-Neko Clouds! 
 
Now I’d like to introduce our gracious host! Dach is a Black & Tan anthropomorphic wiener dog and semi – retired consulting Detective with several degrees in anthropology, archaeology, linguistics & ancient history. He’s also a a highly – decorated military veteran, philanthropist and a very worldly expurrt on the paranormal, occult & crypto-zoological phenomenon, oh and he has has quite a  large of relics, books, art and toys!

Valentinya:
(Dach’s maid catgirl wearing the Crape Myrtle purrint  Brazilian style bikini)) Zdravstvuyte!, I should mention that the mansion is more space than Dach needs, so several friends are boarders on the upper floors. We will generally avoid that part of the house, because some of them are asleep, but they and several other friends will join us later for the Aftermew Luau, nya!!

Valentinya:
Some of our friends are searching for them along the shore as we speak, nya!
 
Keiko:
 
Well, I am in no hurry to leave this wonderful pool, plus it is time for us to present the Celebrity Catgirl Spotlight, although we might want to consider changing that to the Celebrity Kemonomimi Spotlight!
 
Yuriko:
In this portion of The Mew, we commeowmorate famous catgirls and nekomimi of myths and popular culture! Here they are broadly – defined from anthropormorphic feline females, ailuranthropic shape – shifters and other types of feline femme fatales, to those who might not actually have kitty DNA, but do have the cat-titude and / or the style for us to consider as the “honorary catgirls”, nya!
 
Miho:
This time we will shine the spotlight catgirls – and other species of kemonomimi – from various media across the decades, starting with some honorary catgirls, nya! You know, the purrehistoric and jungle girls often have the alluring affinity for the feline fashions, such as the leopurrd purrint attire designed by artist Wally Wood for Princess Rhoa in the tale of “The Lost Kingdom of Athala” which was published in Strange Worlds #41 in 1951, nya!

Charmed is amongst our favoritest TV series, so we were purrticularly pleased when in October of 2001, for the 8th season’s 6th epurrsode of “Kill Billie vol. 1”, the bewitching Piper Halliwell (purrtrayed 
by Holly Marie Combs) wore the cute mouse girl costume for Halloween!
 
Naomee:
You know, Charmed has the connection with The Bing Bang Theory in that both shows have starred actress Kaely Cuoco!

ABC’s Modern Family is another great favorite sitcom known for the occasional feline fashions and catgirl costume; and in the 10th season’s 12th epurrsode of “Blasts from the Past”, Dylan’s mom Farrah (purrtrayed by Rachel Bay Jones) was known for her role in the Sexy Kitty mewsic video, mew la la!
 
Keiko:
In ABC’s amewsing sitcom Single Parents, among the kids at the elementary school are the girl known as Bunny Ears and her entourage who wear the bunny ear headbands! It is the very amewsing TV series, and the head bnds are the cute fashion accessory, but those “usagimimi” can be rather mischievous, nya!
 
Yuriko:
You know, ABC is owned by Disney, and in last year’s Decorating Disney: Halloween Magic documentary on how the Walt Disney World resort is decorated for Halloween, Cierra Ramirez of The Fosters hosted the show, wearing the glitterly orange mouse ears  that went wonderfully with her cute Black & White stripe top ensemble, nya!

Isabella:
The awesome actress Rebecca Ferguson not only rocked the leopurrd purrint garment, but meowed on the Young Hollywood talk show, nya! We were also delighted to see in the January 2019 issue of Playboy magazine that singer / songwriter Cardi B, wore the leopurrd purrint outfit as a guest at the Manhattan Playboy Club’s opening!
 
Naomee:
I would like to mention the mystery celebrity contestants earlier this year on the Masked Singer TV show! Those included Margaret Cho as the poodle, Tori Spelling as the unicorn, Ricki Lake as the raven, LaToya Jackson as the alien, Gladys Knight as the bee, and bringing the feline grace to the stage was Rumor Willis as the lion!

She The People purresidential forum, and later that evening filled in on Chris Hayes’s All In show, bringing the female feline fashion with her lovely leopurrd purrint blouse with the orange-Red skirt, nya!
 
sabella:
In Wararu Karasuma’s Not Lives manga which purrtains to the game designer Mikami who is sucked into the video game, he befriends the sweet cute petite avatar Kyouka Amamiya who at one point wears the sexy catgirl costume into the fight; and furthermore they meet the sexy sly savvy enigmatic avatar Akane Arima who later decides to wear the kuroneko cat ears!

It is quite beautiful, sexy, romantic & thrilling, but it is not for the widdle kitties!  
 
Keiko:
Sapphic Musk is a great all- girl rock band, and in their mewsic video for the song “Kittenz” the chorus is meowed by the antlered lead singer Sarah T. Russell, whilst guitarist Mia Ferraro in the leopurrd purrint top plays with the cat plushy as the audience paws at the air, nya! Val-san, would you like to shine the spotlight a famous kemonmimi or “honorary kemonomimi”, nya?
 
Valentinya:
Well, as the matter of fact, recently we watched the 1971 Hammer film of The Creatures The World Forgot, which purrtains to the purre-historic tribal adventures, in which actress Jule Ege stars as Nala the cave girl, who is the alluring sight in her leopurrd fur bikini, nya!
 
Yuriko:

Valentinya:
I would be delighted, nya!
 
Ilyana:
Jenjen is gonna start, with her review of
 
Justice League vs The Fatal Five!
 
Jeannie:
Hai. We are big fans of the DC animated universe’s TV series & movies, so it was with the great eagerness that I purrchased this 2 disk Bu-ray / DVD / Digital combo. The plot purrtains to the 31st century’s evil team known as The Fatal Five, compurrised of Tharok, Emerald Empress, Mano, Tharok & Validus, who steal the time machine from the heroic Legion of Super-Heroes, and travel back to the 21st century, where they battle the Justice League, compurrised of Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Mr. Terrific & Miss Martian.
 
The main standout characters of the PG-rated, 77 minute OVA are The Legion’s Starboy and the League’s Green Lantern Jessica Cruz, each whom battle their own mental illnesses whilst battling the villains. The planet Oa is involved, but I should not say more of that. This tale was magnificent, with the very thrilling poignant plot, the great characters & dialogue, the supurrb art & animation, brilliant direction editing, voice acting, sound & mewsic, and the excellent balance of humor, drama, mythology, developments & “easter eggs”.
 
The voice cast includes Elyes Gabel as Starboy, Diane Guerrero as Jessica, Kevin Conroy as batman, George Newbern as Superman, Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman, Kevin Michael Richardson as Mr. Terrific, Daniela Bobdalia as Miss Martian, Smalee Monanto as Emerald Empress, Philip Anthony Rodriguez as Mano, Matthew Yang King as The Persuader, Peter Jessop as Tharok, Tara Strong as Saturn Girl, Noel Fisher as Brainiac 5, Tom Kenny as Bloodsport, and Bruce Timm as Two-Face.
 
Wes Gleason is the voice director. Sam Register & Bruce are executive purrducers; Michael Uslan & Benjamin Melniker are co-executive purrducers, Alan Burnett & Jim Krieg are co-purrducers; Amy McKenna & director Sam Liu are purrducers, the telepay by Eric Carrasco, Jim & Alan is based upon the story by Eric; the character designs are by Steven Choi & Will Nichols; the mewsic is by Michael McCuistion, Kristopher Carter & Lolita Ritmanis; the animation is by Warner Bros. Animation & edited by Christopher D. Lozinski.
 
The video is of the 1.78: 1 screen aspect ratio with the 5.1 Dolby Digital sound. The language choices of the Blu-ray are English or French audio, optional English SDH or French subtitles, and audio commentary by Timm, Liu, Krieg & Carrassco. The audio choices of the NTSC R1 DVD are English, French, Spanish or Thai with the optional subtitles in English SDH, French, Spanish or Thai, but no commentary track; and the DVD includes some purreview trailers but has no special features.
 
In addition to the commentary & purreviews, the Blu-ray’s special features include the bonus Legion of Super-Heroes epurrsode “Man of Tomorrow” (appurrox. 22.75 min.), the Justice League Unlimited epurrsode “Far From Home” (appurrox. 23 min.), the (appurrox. 9.25 min.) sneak peek at the forthcoming animated Batman Hush, and two featurettes: “Unity of Hero” which is the the (appurrox 15 min)
discussion of character diversity, and “Battling the Invisible Menace”, which is the (appurrox 8 min.) discussion of characters’ mental health illness.
 
The discussions  include comments by Carrasco, Krieg, author Marv Wolfman, DC Entertainment’s animation creative director Mike Carlin, clinical psychologist Andrea Letamendi PHD, DC Daily hosts Tiffany Smith & Hector Navarro. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that also appurring in the tale are Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Shadow Lass, Chameleon Boy, Mon-el, Dawnstar, Tyroc, Kilowog and Salakk. In closing, I was extremely pleased with Justice League vs The Fatal Five, which I will give the A Minus grade. Nyow here is Mayr to discuss
 
Hellboy.
 
Mary Nyan:
I mst admit that I had the mixed feeling about this movie based upon Mick Mignola’s great Hellboy comics, as I enjoyed the purrior two Hellboy movies that were directed by Guilermo del Tor and starred Ron Perlman, but I was sad that this was a reboot already, and without Perlman or del Toro. I also enjoyed the two animated Hellboy movies too! 
 
However, my enthusiasm did purrk up when I found out that the director was Neil Marshall, whose purrior credits include Dog Soldiers, The Descent, and Doomsday! Furthermore, I liked the purreview trailers, and was quite pleased that Hellboy is nyow purrtrayed by David Harbor who we like in the Stranger Things TV series!
 
Furthermore, the more good mews is that rest of the great cast also includes Daniel Dae Kim as ben the were – jaguar,, Sasha Lane as Alice the psychic, Thomas Hayden Church as the heroic Lobster Johnson, Ian McShane as Hellboy’s adoptive father, and – wait for it – Milla Jovovich as The Blood Queen! I will go see any movie that she is in! 
 
Nyow for the taste of the plot! Centuries ago, King Arthur and Merlin defeated The Blood Queen and her army, but nyow she has returned and wants to hook up with Hellboy to bring about the apocalypse and rule the world! However, he is not keen on this purrophecized purrospect, and unfortunately for him there are many others trying to kill him.
 
I purrfur the purrior Hellboy movies, and wish this’un was the sequel instead of the reboot, and it seemed the bit rushed and too short, but it is the extravaganza full of the action, adventure, lavish FX, elaborate creatures, and the terrific cast! It is also rated R due to the harsh language, violence & gory aplenty, so it is not for the widdle kitties! Nyow for our next review of the comic book cinematic adaptation, here is Kit to discuss
 
Shazam!
 
Kitrina:
We were eagerly anticipating this longly – awaited movie because we enjoy the Shazam comics characters such as Billy, Freddy, Mary and Tawny, and the purrview trailers seemed to purromise the abundant fun, nya! It is the origin tale for the orphan kid Billy who tries to find his mom, meets his new foster family, has troubles at school, meets the ancient wizard, becomes the supurr hero with the adult body, learns his supurr powers, and is purrsued by the evil spirits and Dr. Sivana, nya! Of course, as the supurr hero movie, there are the terrific battle scenes with the great visual FX, nya!
 
A lot of the charm of the tale purrtains to the relationships amongst Billy’s foster family, which includes Freddy, Darla, Mary, Eugene Pedro, the mom Rosa and dad Victor, nya! Most of the antics purrtain to Billy and Freddy’s attempts to determine the supurr powers, and how they are used for both the purrsonal benefits and to help people, nya. The tale is wonderfully peppurred with the fantasy aspects, when the kids travel to the wizard’s lair, and there is the sense of the shared continuity with the rest of the recent live-action DC movies, with the references to Batman and Superman, nya!
 
There are other references and characters.,  but I should not spoil the plot any further, although I will mention that there are the mid & post credits scenes, nya. Dr. Sivana is purrtrayed by Mark Strong, who has purrtrayed  other comic book characters, such as Sinestro in the Green Lantern movie, nya! Compurred to the other DC movies, I think that I preferred Dark Knight, Wonder Woman and Aqua Man; I liked Shazam about as much as Justice League, but more than  Green Lantern, Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman, and Suicide Squad, nya. I am done, so nyow Katty will discuss
 
Mirai, nya!
 
Katherine:
Hai, Mirai is the latest anime movie by director Mamori Hosada & Studio Chizu, whose wonderful purrior credits include The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, Wolf Children, and The Boy and the Beast, nya! It has won the many international awards, and was nominated for the Oscar this year, nya! 
 
It is the tale of the widdle four year old boy named Kun who has the trouble adjusting to the attention given to his newborn widdle sister Mirai, nya. Much of the crying & tantrums result, adding to the difficulties for the purrents who are trying to balance their careers with the purrnting. Then there are supurrnatural occurrences, nya!
 
The shape – shifting and the time – traveling occurs, as Kun is visited by the future 14 year old version of Mirai, and the human version of their dog Yukko, nya. Furthermore, Kin himself time – travels to see the younger versions of their purrents & grandpurrents, nya! It is such the amwesing, poignant, beautiful movie, nya!
 
It has the beautiful character designs, scenic art, animation, direction, mewsic, sound FX & voice cast, nya! The 98 min. PG rated movie  was recently released here upon the Region One NTSC DVD by G-Kids, nya. It is purrsented in the 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, in Japanese & English Dolby Digital 5.1 sound with the optional subtitles, nya!
 
The DVD also includes the bonus features, such as the intermew with Hosada, voice actor Gen Hoshino’s tour of Studio Chizu, and the purreview trailers, nya! I was very happy with the movie and the DVD which I will give the highest of purraise, nya! Nyow we would like to know what is Val-san’s opinion of
 
Avengers: Endgame, nya!
 
Valentinya:
Oh gosh, you know, I am a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s movies & TV series by the Marvel Studios, and its so many great characters, stories, actors & crews, nya! I have especially liked the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy movies, and I rather enjoyed the Avengers: Infinity War movie in which those  heroic teams were united against the villain Thanos & his evil army, nya!
 
So like the many other fans I was eagerly awaited the sequel of Avengers Endgame, in which the heroes try to defeat Thanos and restore the universe, but I do not wish to spoil any of the plot because it is such the recent movie, nya. I will just opine that I although it seemed the bit rushed and I did not care for some of the shaky camera style during certain scenes, but otherwise it was awesome, nya!
 
I think that it is the wonderfully grand epic tale which has the excellent balance of the drama, humor, action, character developments & myth-making, with the very high purrduction values, supurrb purrformances, visual FX, appurrances my very many characters, and the surpurrises aplenty, so I will give it the “A” as in Avengers, nya! That is all for our movie mewings, but I believe there is the TV talk going in
 
the conservatory, nya!
 
 
Ilyana:
So this is the conservatory! It is very purretty and open with lots of instruments and records!
 
Pendula:
The insulation allows for the perfect reverb! I wonder if they’ll allow my echolocation in here!
 
Rascal:
(whose voice is magickally translated while in the mansion) Ooh,  things to purrch upon! (I starts to climb upon the Bosendorfer piano) 
 
Jamie:
There’s a sitar, a shamisen, a celesta, and– Ahhh! Rascal! Get off of there!
 
Rusty:
(also translated) Oh look at these… a Firebird trumpet, a Nagahara flute, and Maclellan bagpipes! 
 
Rascal:
I want… I want to knead the bagpipes!
 
Jamie:
Don’t do that. And don’t scratch the sitar! 
 
Pendula:
Petra’s mom & dad will being performing in here tonight!
 
Ilyana:
Yattah! I want to hear that! Well, purrhaps Pendula can tell us about
 
What We Do in the Shadows season 1!
 
Pendula:
Hai! based upon the New Zealand mockumentary movie of the same name, What We Do in th Shadows is the new TV sitcom on the FX channel. It is sort of like Modern Family, but with vampires, as the film crew follows the vampire room mates in their mansion and parts of New York, with the inserted interview segments!
 
The great main cast includes Naqtsasia Demetrious as Nadja, Matt Berry as Lazlo, Mark Proksch as Colin. Kayvan Novak as Nandor, and Harvey Guillen as his servant Guillermo. Recurring others include Doug Jones as Baron Afanas, and Beanie Feldstein as Jenna the LARPer! As of May 1st there have been the 6 episodes.
 
The plots have included the Baron’s arrival, stalking the LARPers, the city council meeting, the clash with the werewolf group, Guillermo’s desire to become a vampire, Jenna’s transformation, Colin’s co-worker Evie, the visit to the night club, Nadja’s reincarnated lover Gregor, Lazlo’s cursed hat, getting caught by the animal control, and The Baron’s night night on the town.
 
In addition to the brilliant characters, cast, direction & stories, the series has the high production values with the great cinematography, editing, FX and soundscape! Although it is not for the widdle kitties due to the violence & language, I will recommend it to fans of the contemporary comedic horror tales! Speaking of which, Rusty wishes to discuss
 
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina season 1!
 
Rusty:
The Chilling Adventure of Sabrina, a hit for Netflix last year, began its second season in 2019. With much taken from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (including a cast member), Harry Potter and an upside down version of the catholic church, Sabrina brings a dark fable to life. Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka), a witch born from a warlock and a mortal, finds herself in the middle of the witch world and the mortal world as a parable for good and evil.
 
Like most supernatural fare, the second outing is darker than the first, as a battle for Sabrina’s soul begins. This leads to subtle, yet hilarious scene in which the devil bids Sabrina to steal a pack of gum. She’s thwarted by Satan’s competitor, Lilith (Michelle Gomez). However, even she is tempted by the appearance of well mannered human, ironically named Adam (Alexis Denisof).
 
Sabrina’s aunts, Zelda and Hilda lovingly played by Miranda Otto and Lucy Davis (Edna Candy in Wonder Woman). They both, in their own ways, steal many scenes. Unfortunately, Sabrina’s familiar, Salem is mostly missing in action this season. Not at all like the puppet from the ABC show, this cat merely purrs and meows, though Sabrina can understand him. Meow. Now Rascal will share his opinion of
 
Supergirl season 4!
 
Rascal:
Note: The fourth season of Supergirl has yet to complete as of this Mew, with the season finale schedule to air on May 19th, meow!
 
The Arrowverse seems to have an unwritten rule that each show, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Black Lightning, each explore a theme. Arrow is dark and gritty. With the Flash, it’s geekdom and fun. That’s what put it as the CW network’s number one superhero show. Legends is quirky and over the top. Supergirl aimed straight for feminism. In its third and now fourth season, the show has added politics to its roster.
 
While the show seemed to promise a “Red Daughter” plotline (a loose adaptation of Superman: Red Son), that promise was not entirely fulfilled. The Red Daughter does show up, but she’s used more as a plot device than an actual character. More often than not, the show spends it time dealing with political points of which some are more successful than not.
 
Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) still sells the character well and the creators seem to have a better handle on the Girl of Steel than anyone in the comics ever did. So, like shows from days gone by, The Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, whenever Supergirl shows up, the ratings go up, as she is still the heart and soul of the show. Meow.
 
Star Trek: Discovery (season 2)
 
Jamie:
Star Trek: Discovery premiered in 2018 on CBS All Access, the network’s streaming channel. The show was met with mostly positive reviews, but garnered ire from some Star Trek fans for playing with canon. The sophomore outing dealt with the age old Star Trek trope, time travel, though in a somewhat unique fashion.
 
Section 31 and time travel became a major focal point of the season as Commander Michael Burnham, (Sonequa Martin-Green), began to see a red angel. This angel also appeared to her brother, Spock (Ethan Peck), when he was a child and starts to reappear to him in the present.
 
The first half of the season dealt with the mystery of the Red Angel and took Discovery into interesting and personal regions, forging wonderful character development for nearly every crew member. The second half, however, introduced a big bad that overshadowed the smaller moments that the show had done so well in the past.
 
Character development was sacrificed for explosions and extended farewells that lead nowhere.That said, Discovery’s second season did evolve a familiar face into one of the best captains of the franchise. Captain Christopher Pike, portrayed by Anson Mount, was the highlight of the show.
 
A bit like Kirk without the ego and carrying some of Picard’s wisdom, Mount’s Pike was always firm, but commanded with wit and charm. Michelle Yeoh as Philippa Georgiou, steals nearly every scene she is in and gets a few kicks in, literally. Now here is Ilyana to review
 
My Little Pony Equstria Girls Spring Breakdown!
 
Ilyana:
Hai! We are big fans of the My Little Pony animated TV series, comic books, and toys, nya! That includes the Equestria Girls spin-off animated movies, TV series & shorts purrtaining to the alternate world’s human high school student versions of the ponies! In this TV special they are aboard the cruise ship for spring break, but the relaxation & fun are hindered by misunderstandings & magickal purrdicaments!
 
Their pony counterparts & Spike appurr in this tale too, nya! The supurrb voice cast includes Tara Strong as Twilight Sparkle, Tabitha St. Germain as Rarity, Rebecca Shoichet as Sunset Shimmer, Andrea Libman as Pinkie Pie and and Fluttershy, Ashleigh Ball as Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and the parrot they meet, Cathy Weseluck as Spike,  Jason Michas as Ragamuffin the steward, Kathleen Barr as Trixie Lulamoon and Chef Puffed Pastry!
 
Kazumi Evans purrforms Rarity’s singing voice and Rebecca Shoichet purrforms Twilight Sparkle’s singing voice, nya. Things are off to the idyllic start in the purretty summery & beachy attire with numcious desserts aplenty, but then the wacky hijinks ensue when Rainbow Dash disrupts the activities while in search of sinister magickal phenomenon. 
 
However, things do take the more dire and action – packed turn when she makes the startling discovery that is somehow connected to The Storm King, who was last seen in last year’s My Little Pony movie! I thought that this 45 minute special was very entertaining and charming, and I will recommend it to our fellow pony fans, nya! That is all for our movie & TV mewsings, but our pony topic will continue in the library with our 
 
comic book & manga mewsings!
 
Trini-chan:
(in the corridor, nearing the library) — so we just finished watching Locodol and Unikitty, so nextly are going to catch up on Game of Thrones! What was your latest movie binge?
 
Elizabeth:
We recent;y enjoyed the 1970’s Doug McClure fantasy movie marathom of The Land That Time Forgot, The People That Time Forgor, At The Earth’s Core, and Warlords of Atlantis!
 
Becca:
Peter Cushing, Caroline Munro, Anthony Ainley, Sarah Douglas, Shane Rimmer, Cyd Charisse, John Rayzenberger, Robert Brown, Dave Prowse and Patrick Wayne are in some of those!
 
Tara-chan:
Oh those sound like fun, nya! Ok here is the alcove with the cute dwarf umbrella tree in it… so the next doors on the right should lead to the library, nya!
 
Elizabeth:
 (slides open the shoji doors) Wow! Lookit the size of this library! Lookit all those books and that spiral staircase!
 
Becca:
I could spend days in this room alone! Oh and it connects to Dach’s study and a conference room too!
 
Tara-chan:

(snaps photos of the Aloe, Pothos, Jade Plant, Peace Lily, and Acacea Palm)
 
Trini-chan:
These chairs are so comfy! This would be the perfect spot for the catnap after we tender the reviews!
 
Valentinya:
(flying in with the hors d’oeuvres)  You can have the full-tummied catnap in the comfy chair if you like, nya!
 
Elizabeth, Becca, Tara-chan & Trini-chan:
Arigato gozaimasu, nya! 
 
Tara-chan:
I will begin our comic book reports, with my review of
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic #76, nya!
 
Tara-chan:
Arigato nya! We love the My Little Pony TV series, movies, toys, books and – and comics! Published by IDW, the comics faithfully capture the spirit, style and – and the characters of the animated tales, but wit the different advantages of the purrinted comics medium! There is such the supurrb stable of artists, authors and- and editors that create the comics,   and -and  it is hard to believe that those comics have been around for almost seven years!
 
The current story arc began in the doubly – sized 75th issue and – and continues in #76, nya. Purrreviously,  Celestia, Luna, King Aspen, Queen Abyssinia, and – and King Grover remedied the  epic reality –  altering catastrophe which was blamed on Discord, but was actually caused by Cosmos who is more powerful than Discord, nya! Cosmos was thwarted, but years later she returned, posssessed Twilight Sparkle, Luna and- and Celestia, nya!
 
The tale continues in issue #76’s “osmos Act The 3rd, as Pinkie Pie, Big McIntosh, Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo Zecora, and – and Capper try to rescue their friends and – and find the fallen stars from the Andalusian Constellation that will defeat Cosmos, nya! It  was written by Katie Cook & Andy Price, illustrated by Andy, colored by Heather Breckel, lettered by Neil Uyetake, edited by Megan Brown and – and Bobby Curnow, nya. 
 
That team worked on the first issue of this series, nya! Issue #76 is available in the choice of cover A by Andy, cover by by Sara Richard, and- and the retailer incentive cover by Diego Jourdan Pereia, nya.  The tale resumes in Klugetown, wherein Pinkie Pie and – and Big Mcintosh enter the grueling Muck marathon to win the trophy, which contains one of the missing stars, while the Cutie Mark Crusaders find another star in Griffonstone, nya! 
 
Also briefly appurring are Applejack, Discord, Abyssinia and- and Grover, nya! I should not spoil more of the tasty plot, but I will just say that it is the quite thrilling, amewsing and – and the dire situation which has the  the great dialogue, pace, beautiful art, and- and the exciting cliffhanger which is to be continued in issue #77, soI will give it the high purraise grade of the  “A” as in Applebuck, nya! I am done, so nyow here is Lizzy to tell us about
 
 
Rainbow Brite #5, nya!
 
Elizabeth::
Based upon Hallmark’s Rainbow Brite, this comic book is published by Dynamite, which seems only natural, because they have the good knack for the tales of great strong, smart, brave heroines such as Red Sonja, Dejah Thoris, Vampirella, Sheena and Ms Fury! 
 
This 30 page issue is purriced at #3.99 and is available in the choice of the 4 different front covers: cover A by Paulin Ganucheau, cover B which has the classic Rainbow Brite art, cover C which is like cover A but without the type, and cover D which is like cover B but without the type. 
 
Sammiched betwixt the cover is the uninterrupted 22 page tale which is followed by the 8 pages of the ads, and we wish that all other publishers would thusly not interrupt the tales! Rated for the readers of all ages, it was written by North Carolina author Jeremy Whitley who we have met at the numerous conventions! 
 
He has written the many other comic books, such as  Vampirella, Sea of Thieves, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, The Unstoppable Wasp, and some other Marvel comics! It was  pencilled by Xenia Pamfil, inked by Christine Hipp,  colored by Valentina Pinto, lettered by Tavior Esposito, and edited by Kevin Ketner.
 
The adventure continues for the widdle girl named Wisp who was telepurrted from The Earth to the Rainbow Land where she became the latest supurr – heroine known as Rainbow Brite, who must stop the evil King of Shadows and his minions from absorbing all of the color spectrum from the universe! 
 
Issue #5 picks up right where issue #4 left off, with Rainbow Brite fighting the robot that has captured her friend Red who is also from The Earth! It is quite the merrily exciting fight into the mines, but hey ge caught and imprisoned in the dungeon, where they meet fellow purrisoner Patty the Green Color Guard!
 
The three widdle spurrites Twinkle, Lucky, Gloomy arrive to help, and reveal more of Rainbow Land’s history to Wisp. I should not reveal too much more of the plot, but it does involve Wisp’s best friend Willow, who is back on The Earth where their purrents and the police have been searching for Wisp!
 
This continues to be such the delightfully charming fun series with the peppy characters, the sparkling dialogue, the perfect pace, the very pretty art and the great graphic narrative techniques, so I will give it the high praise while I eagerly anticipate the next issue! Nyow Becca wants to tell us about
 
The Unstoppable Wasp #6!
 
Becca:
Hai! We were thrilled about the publication of this new 6 issue mini – series from Marvel Comics, because the purrior Wasp series was one of our favoritest  series ever! The tale stars Nadia Van Dyne the orphaned Hungarian genius daughter of Hank (Ant Man) & Maria Pym, who was adopted by her step mom Janet van Dyne (The Wasp) and became the latest heroine known as The Wasp! 
 
She has fought the criminals and started the G.I.R.L. (Genius in Action Research Labs) group for the genius heroines who might impurrove the world, nya! The diverse mutlicultural genius  team includes Taina the mechanical engineer, Priya the biologist, Ying the chemist and Shay the physicist! 
 
Janet, Mockingbird, Jarvis, Matt Murdock, and Taina’s sister Alexis have been helping them too! Unfortunately, the conflicts have also included Nadia’s struggle with her own bipolar disorder, which has affected her relationships, but there have been the joyful situations aplenty, such as the romance betwixt Ying & Shay! 
 
Issue #6 was written by Jeremy, illustrated by Alti Firmansyan, colored by Espen Grundetjenn, lettered by Joe Caramagna, edited by Alanna Smith and assistantly edited by Shannon Andrews! The issue’s graphic design is by Carlos Lao, and the front cover art is by Stacey Lee! 
 
Whilst Nadie gets the counseling and offers the apologies, there is the significant development for Ying & Shay which includes the confrontation with Shay’s mean mom, which might be Ying’s finest hour!  This was yet another beautiful, supurrb issue full of the purrofound developments for the great characters, and I will give it the “A” as in Ant Man!  Nyow here is Trini-chan to tell us about-
 
Princeless Book 8 #1: Princesses!
 
Trini-chan:
Hai, we love Jeremy’s Princeless series about the runaway princess Andrea, her family & friends who want the adventurous life free from the stereotypes & bigotries, and the spin-off series of Raven the Pirate Princess which stars the very diverse female crew upon the high seas! Princeless is now up to Book 8, and this first issue reveals the origin of Andrea’s older sister Alize!
 
She is kept in the huge tower in the desert which is zealously guarded by the huge sphinx catgirl! Published by Action Lab, this full color 24 page issue is priced $3.99 and has the uninterrupted 24 page tale that was written by Jeremy, illustrated by Kaitlin Jann, lettered by Brett Grunig, and edited by Nicole D’Andria & Jeremy’s wife Alicia, who we have met at the cons too! 
 
It is the tale of how Alize wound up in that tower, how she befriended the desert elves, and how she met her husband. We learn that one of the elves is the mother of Sunshine who co-stars in Raven’s series!  It is quite the captivating tale that brims with the sparkling dialogue of the wonderful smart, strong characters who overcome the misogyny, racism & xenophobia!
 
It unfolds at the perfect pace, and the artistry is as gorgeous as gorgeous can be, from the characters, environments, and the narrative’s sense of choreography, to the sumptuous use of the color, lighting and the fonts! I will give this issue the “A” as in Alize and my anticipation for the next issue!  I am done, but the comics & manga mewsings are purrobably continuing in 
 
The Great Room!
 
Draceana: 
That was so very kind of Val-san to bring us the nummy snacks! Gosh, I bet that you could have a mini – convention in here! 
 
Ellie:
The open plan with the vaulted ceiling, grand staircase, large windows and the crystal chandeliers certainly add to the bright ambience!
 
Kara-Meow’l
I love the arrangement of the furniture, and lookit all of the treasures- there are so many lovely paintings, sculptures and awards!
 
BB
I overheard Mike and Jamie mention that will be setting up this room for tonight’s purrformance by Sparkle’s chamber mewsic quartet!
 
Meryl:
By then the boarders on the uppurr floors will have arisen to join us, but in the meantime we should not be too loud! However I am curious to hear Dra-san’s opinion of
 
 
West Coast Avengers #10!
 
Draceana: 
OK, this has been one of my favorite Marvel Comics, with the great characters, story art & fun ambience, so I was sad that this was the final issue. It was written by Kelly Thompson, drawn by Moy R, colored by Triona Farrell, lettered by Joe Caramagna, edited by Alana Smith, and assistantly edited by Shannon Andrews, with graphic design by Carlos Lao and the cover art by Gang Hyuk Lim. 
 
In the past 10 issues, Clint “Hawkeye” Barton’s daughter Kate “Hawkeye” Bishop assembled the team of young new heroes including America, Fuse, Kid Omega and Gwenpool. They have fought giant creatures (including a giant-sized Tigra), MODOK, The Masters of Evil, and a vampire cult, while starring in the reality TV show whilst their new headquarters was under construction. 
 
They have the dog named lucky, the quadrupedal shark named Jeff, and a dragon friend too! There has been romance betwixt Kate & Fuse, America & Fuse’s sister Alloy, Gwenpool & Kid Omega, whilst Kate’s ex-boyfriend Noh-Varr returned. In this finale, the vampires were defeated, Kate was reunited bittersweetly with her  mom, and the series was topped off by Kelly Thompson’s letter to the fans.
 
it seems like most of my favorite Marvel and DC Comics only last about the year or two before they are cancelled! That fate befell Power Girl, Starfire, Zatanna, Gotham City Sirens, Avengers Academy, Fearless Defenders, America, and Patsy Walker A.K.A. HellCat, sigh. However, fortunately my other favorite Marvel comic book  is still being published, so here is Ellie to tell us about
 
Belit #2!
 
Ellie:
Arigato! Created in 1934 and known as The Queen of the Black Coast, Belit was the famous female pirate and lover of Conan the Barbarian in author Robert E. Howard’s the sword & sorcery tales of The Hyborbian Age! In this comic book published by Marvel, we learn of her origin as the daughter of Dread Admiral Atrahasis the pirate king who commands the pirate fleet of the country of Shem.
 
It is the vengefully busy time for Belit, who intends to hunt down the deadly giant sea monsters and to regain her late father’s plundered ships. The 2nd issue of this Marvel comic was written by Tini Howard, illustrated by Kate Niemczyk, colored by Jason Keith, lettered by Travis Lanham, edited by Mark Russo, assistantly edited by Martin Brin, and consultingly edited by Ralph Machio.
 
The production design was by Anthony Gambina, the cover art is by Sana Takeda, the variant cover art is by Rebekkah Isaacs & Rachell Rosenberg, and the bonus prose novella chapter is by Michael A. Stackpole, with the design by Jay Bowen. With the help of Captain Saturninus and hist first mate Prisca, Belit takes back her father’s three-masted schoonerf lagship The Tigress!
 
That is not only good for her, but it will take both The Tigress and Saturninus’s ship The Imperatrix to defeat the colossal tentacled leviathan monster! After that goal, Belit’s next stop is to show her prize to Mistress Tanada of Barathan, but it seems that Belit is not the only one with the monsters!
 
After that are the three purrose pages of “Bone Whispers”, part 2 of 5,  in which Belit N’yaga the shaman are on the quest for fabulous treasure, nya! This was yet another beautiful fun adventure of the nautical high adventure, and I am quite eager to see what the feisty young pirate queen will do next! Nyow for the tale of another feisty young monster hunter, here is Meryl to discuss
 
The Hunters of Salamanstra #15!
 
Meryl:
Hai! The Hunters of Salamanstra began in 2014 as the bittersweetly manga – style fantasy sci-fi / web comic by creator / artist / writer John Joseco, editor Memj and assistant editor Calpain, nya! Published by Keenspot, it is the tale of  Kessah Orlianne, a feisty 19 year old wolf girl who is training to become the monster huntress after the death of her famous older sister Dianna.
 
Kessah recently began the training at the boot camp at the hunter guild’s huge headquarters which is bustling with diverse species including many kemonomimi species. There are friends, rivals and foes, and sadly some of them perished during the deadly monster hunts in the vast canyon and forest wilderlands. Issue #14 actually the 15th issue as there was the purrcursory issue #0!
 
The uninterrupted Black & White 36 page is written & drawn by John, edited by Jennifer McGregor and  Calpain, with the cover art colored by Bernie Joseco. Kessah is now on her 2nd guild-sanctioned hunt, with her team compurrised of Mia, Asharia, Silfee, Bowen, Raen, and their leader Captain Ronald. Kessah and  Asharia have such lovely ears and tails!
 
After finally slaying the dangerous huge Helcapra beasts, they time has the more quiet restful time in the cavern. This interlude offers the happier moments of the camaraderie, but Kessah appurrs to be haunted by something! Then it is the next morning as the hunt ensues in the forest where they attack the giant bird-like Encolos, but it is going to be yet another grueling mission!
 
The series is gorgeously rendered with the Japanese manga- inspired style of the art for the captivating plots that have the good balance of the action, humor, tragedy, mythology and Kessah’s developments, but it is not for the widdle kitties due to the very tragic moments, the gory combat violence, and some of the harsh language.  I am done, and nyow I will turn The Mew over to B.B. who wants to discuss
 
Beasts of Burden: In the Presence of Others #1!
 
BB:
Arigato! Created by author Evan Dorken (Milk and Cheese, The Eltingville Club) and artist Jill Thompson (Scary Godmother, At Death’s Door)  Beasts of Burden is the beautiful bittersweet fantasy tale of heroic friends who have investigated the purranormal incidents and defended their town from evil supurrnatural threats, but in this case those defenders are cats, dogs and other critters! 
 
To most of its human residents, Burden Hill seems like the pleasant purretty town, but little do they know of their pets’ vigilance against wicked purredators! It is the very charming, Eisner Award – winning tale of wonderful characters, amewsing and thrilling  but sometimes sadly tragic situations.  At the 2012 Heroes Con, Jill & Evan signed our copies of the Beasts of Burden hardcover! 
 
Some of the tales were co-written by Evan’s wife Sarah Dryer (Action Girl), and the recent Wise Dogs and Eldritch men mini –  series was illustrated by Benjamin Dewey. This current tale was written by Evan, illustrated by Jill,  lettered by Nate Pekos, edited by Daniel Chabon, assistantly edited by Brett Israel & Chuck Howitt, with the graphic design by Sarah Terry & digital wizardry by Chris Horn.
 
Introduced in this issue are the human girl Sabrina, her brother Russell and their dad who have just moved to Burden Hill, where they have noticed the odd things and have just met the heroic guardian cats & dogs, such as Ace the Husky, Jack the Beagle, Whiney the Terrier, Pugs the Pug, Orphan the Orange Tabby cat, Dymphna the witchy Black cat, and the various swift spy cats!
 
Fortunately those humans are investigating the occult phenomenon, can psychically communicate with the animals, who warn them about the recent necromancy amidst the graves and the giant evil rats that have attacked people. Unfortunately, the next attack is upon Sabrina, Russell, their dad, the dogs and cats! Thusly there is some gory combat violence and other disturbences!
 
The plot and dialogue are poignant, and the art beautifully depicts the characters, scenery, FX and emotions, so I will give this tale thus far the high purraise, and I am very eager to read the next issue! NyowI will turn The Mew over to Kara for her comments about
 
Batman #68!
 
Kara-Meow’l
Hai! I must admit that I have not been reading DC’s Batman comic books much of late, but the plot and creative team of this purrticular issue interested me greatly, because it co-stars Catwoman and one o the artists is Amanda Conner! The issue is purriced $3.99 and it’s 32 pages are compurrised of the 20 page tale which is interrupted by the 12 pages of the advertisements.
 
“Knightmare part 6: Solitude” was written by Tom King, illustrated by John Timms, Dan Panosian and Amanda; colored by Paul Mounts, Jordie Bllare & John, lettered by Clayron Cowles, and edited by Jamie S. Rich, associately edited by Brittany Holzherr, with the mane front cover art by Amanda & Paul, and th variant cover art by Francesco Mattina. We have met Amanda at the con!
 
The mane cover art depicts Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, The Cheetah and Zatanna (?) all wearing the bejeweled cat ears for the wild time at the male strip club, mew la la! Actually, in the tale, it is just Catwoman and Lois Lane who are having the wild time in this tale imagined by Bruce Wayne / Batman in the wake of his cancelled wedding with Selina Kyle / Catwoman.
 
That was the very sad purrdicamint, but this tale is quite amewsing as Lois & Selina purrtake of the intergalactic booze, the cosmic hot tub, and the cosplay in Supurman’s Fortress of Solutide, whilst Bruce & Clark Kent / Superman have the more sedate suppertime at Wayne Manor. Lois & Selina also get the massages by the three Superman androids who are talked into the stripping!
 
Also appurring in the tale are Supergirl and Alfred. While the gorgeous, fun tale tends to be rather humorous, it does have the poignant moments, but I should not further spoil the plot! I will give this issue the high purraise, and I hope that Bruce & Selina can reconcile romantically! I am done, but appurrently there are more comics & manga mewsings going on in
 
the greenhouse!
 
Nyanko:
I knew that Dach had this greenhouse, but I had no idea it was this big ‘n misty!
 
Rika:
Hai, we visit here fairly often and trade the fresh purroduce for the flowers, nya!
 
Nyoka:
Oh, so, so are those Dach’s flowers at your farmers market booth?
 
Nico:
Hai, and all of the money from the flowers sold is donated to the charity, nya!
 
Mielikki:
Lookit these varities of the Heliconias, Gingers, and Anthuriums!
 
Rika:
Lookit the Bromeliads, Caladiums, and Ornamental Bananas, nya!
 
Nico:
The french doors on the left lead to the solarium, and the doors on the right lead the garden, nya!
 
Nyanko:
I think we have found the purrettiest spot for our manga mewsings! 
 
Mielikki:
Fur shur!  Hi Val-an! Whatcha got there?
 
Valentinya:
I have placed the croquettes and cran-apple nummy berry cocktails for y’all in the solarium!
 
Rika, Nico, Mielikki, Nyanko & Nyoka:
Arigato gozaimasu, nya!
 
Nyoka:
Mmm nom nom nom these are so yummy! So, I would like to know what Nico thinks of
 
Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale!
 
Nico:
Arigato, nya! Set mostly in the contempurrary suburban district of Gotham City, this very bitterweetly tragic graphic novel was written by Lauren Myracle, illustrated by Isaac Goodhart, colored by Jeremy Lawson, lettered by Deron Bennett, and stars the homeless 15 year old Selina Kyle who begins to call herself catgirl after running away from her abusive home situation, nya.
 
Purriced $16.99 USA & $22.99 Canada, the 224 page trade papurrback is compurrised of the 196 page tale plus the 5 pages of Lauren & Isaac’s bios & intermew, the page of character designs, the 15 page purreview of the pending Raven graphic novel, and the 3 pages of links to resources purrtaining to the suicide purrvention, avoiding self harm, stopping domestic violence & animal cruelty, nya.
 
Sadly, the issues of the harm self harm, violence & cruelty are plentiful aspects of Selia’s life, thanks to her mom and her mom’s bad choices of boy friends, such as the awful thug named Dernell, nya. It seems that the only joy for Selina at home is Cinders the stray widdle kitten that she secretly keeps in her closet, until the last straw that causes her to runway from home, nya!
 
Selina has three friends at school; Angi and Tristan, who also suffer from bullying, and Bruce Wayne, but she drifts away from them to become the homeless shoplifter, nya. On the streets she befriends Ojo the thief who teachers her parkour, Yang the computer hacker, and Rose the orphaned widdle girl, but it is the dangerous environment,where lurks the savage criminal known as the Growler, nya.
 
Under The Moon is purrhaps not for the squeamish readers or the widdle kitties due to the violence, language & serious themes, butt his sumptuously illustrated tale  of the limited chromatic pallet is quite the captivating, poignant origin of the strong, brave, smart survivor who would later become the great DC Comics anti – heroine known as Catwoman, nya! Nyow here is Rika to discuss
 
Today’s Cerberus vol. 12, nya!
 
Rika:
This romantic occult comedy manga by Ato Sakurai stars Kuro, Shirogane and Roze who are the three female human perrsonas of Cerberus the three-headed Hades dog of Greek mythology, and the male human high school student Chiaki who they have romantic feelings for, nya! This results in the “harem” trope, which is especially awkward for his miko friend Hinata who also pines for him, nya!
 
Other recurring characters include Chiaki’s sister Mikado, Hako the nekomata catgirl, her master Idora, their classmate Haru, Minnie the self-purroclaimed fiance of Chiaki, Tama the nine tailed fox girl, Rir Rir the Norse wolf girl and her sisters Hel & Jormung who have a maid cafe & Garm the dog, Mi-Kin & Hi-Kun (the split purrsonas of Cerberus’s kid brother Orthros & the various spirits, nya!
 
Originally published by Square Enix in Japan, it is published in North America by Yen Press. Between the color covers of vol. 12 are 188 pages compurrised of B&W manga chapters 54- 56; the the 34 page side story, the amewsing gag strips, and the 2 color pages. It was translated by Caleb Cook, lettered by Bianca Pistillo, and Rated T for teen readers due to the language, violence & nudity, nya.
 
Purreviously in volume 11’s cliffhanger, Kuro went berserk with anger whilst trying to rescue Chiaki from the Hi-Kun in the underworld, which further complicated the gang’s pending romantc plans for Valentine’s Day, nya. That brings us up to volume 12 which has some alarming , poignant & amewsing scenes as it concludes this series with all hands on deck, nya!
 
The art is lovely and intricate, and except for mean old Hi-Kun, the characters tend to be quite likable, and although they are rivals for the affections, everyone is quite caring and purrotective towards each other, like an extended magickal family! Nyow  for more manga, I will turn The Mew over to Mie-sensei for her review of
 
Beauty and the Beast Girl!
 
Mielikki:
Arigato, Ri-chan! So like, this beautifully bittersweetly yuri manga written & drawn by Neiji pertains to the wonderful romance that blossoms betwixt two ladies, each who has the tragic life and shares the fateful history. Heath is the lonely shunned monster girl who lives alone in the book-filled small house in the forest, until she meets Lily the blind girl  from the overprotected affluent family!
 
Initially published on the Pixiv site in Japan and then published in 2017 by Ichijinsha, this manga was published in North America by Seven Seas. Priced at $13.99 USA & $16.99 Canada the  8.25″ x 6.7/8″ trade paperback has the 170 pages, which  include the 168 Black & White pages of the manga,  plus the 2 color pages; and the color cover art is graced by lovely Heath & Lily!
 
Other characters include Lily’s widower father Flannel, their bodyguard Linaria and maid Iris. it was translated by Elina Ishikawa, adapted by S. Qiouyi Lu, lettered & retouched by CK Russell, proofread by B. Lan Guggenheim & Danielle King, edited by Jenn Grunigen, published by Jason DAngelis, with the cover design by KC Fabellon & production management by Lissa Pattillo. 
 
This totally awesome, pretty, charming tale is intended for the teenage readers, perhaps due to the romantic scenes of embracing & kissing, the serious tragic scenes and perhaps the wee bit of brief over-reacted violence, however it is not the exploitive or explicitly graphic depiction of the relationships, as we hope for the healthy happy future together for Lily & Heath, fur shur! Now here is Nyo-sensei to discuss
 
Battle Angel Alita: Mars Chronicle!
 
Nyoka:
Hai! Known as Gunnm in Japan, Yukito Kishiro’s epic post-apocalyptic cyberpunk manga Battle Angel Alita began in 1990 and pertains to the titular amnesiac cyborg Alita (or Gally, in Japan) who was found in the dystopian future scrapyard and rebuilt by cyber doctor Ido. Retaining her Panzer Kunst style of martial arts prowess, Alita soon becomes a bounty hunter, warrior and athlete who regains more memories of her prior life on Mars amidst her friendships and fights.
 
The manga spawned several sequel series, short stories the spin-off, an animated OVA, and the recent  live-action major motion picture that we greatly loved! Well, this mars Chronicle manga series  is the purrequel tale of Alita’s origin as the widdle cyborg girl named Yoko on the Planet Mars, during which even at that younger innocent age she was surrounded by the heroes and the villains amidst the big political conspurracy!
 
Published by Kodansha Comics, vol. 6 includes the 161 pages of manga chapters 27-31 by Kishiro, which were translated by Stephen Paul, lettered by Evan Hayden and edited by Ajani Oloye, with the cover design by Phil Balsman. The gunslinger cowboy has tried to help Yoko & her friend Erica to escape from the bounty hunter / killer cyborgs, but the girls are captured and taken to The Duke who needs them for a role in the succession of the royal Martian leaders.
 
Those chapters have the startling revelations of Yoko / Alita’s origin, with the very twisty tragic plot, so some of it can be rather shocking and sad. As mewsual, it is rated OT for the older teenaged readers, and the art is quite amazing, from the characters and the mecha to the environments and FX! I reckon that is all that I should say, and nyow here is sis to tell us what she thinks of 
 
Plus- Sized Elf vol. 2!
 
Nyanko:
Trini-chan:
Hai! Written & illustrated in Japan by Synecdoche, this is yet another series published here by Seven Seas, about the compassionate male protagonist who is surrounded by the girls of various species who want his assistance! In this case, the guy is Naoe the osteopathic healer, nutritionist & masseur at the Smiling Boar Clinic which is managed by Akino – sensei.
 
The “harem” of rival “monster girls” includes Elfuda the Light Elf, Kuroeda the Dark Elf, Mero the mermaid, Olga the Ogre, Kaika the werewolf girl, and Kusahanada the Mandragoria plant girl. Each of them has certain dietary or fitness issues, especially when they over- indulge in the yummy foods of our world. Elfuda is especially addicted to the french fries!
 
In volume 1 we also met an unnamed Angel girl at a bus stop. In vol. 2 the eating, dieting & exercising continues with a trip to the swimming pool where they meet Oku the orc girl, and then in the park they meet Kobo the kobold girl. After that the girls attend a festival, gather for spooky ghostly tales, encounter the mischievous satyr girl, and learn how to make french fries.
 
Originally published in 2017 in Japan by Wani Books, Vol. 2 is purriced $12.99 in the USA & $15.99 in Canada, it has the 164 pages manga chapters 7 – 8 plus the bonus elf – bath short and the Kobo-chan 4 koma gag strips. The manga is rated OT for the older teens, purrhaps due to the language, nudity & comedic sexual situations of the interspecies harem trope!
 
It was translated by Jennifer O’Donnell, adapted by David Lumsdon, lettered & retouched by Courtney Williams, purroof – read by Shanti Whitesides & Stephanie Coehn, published by Jason DeAngelis, edited by Shannon Fay, and edited in chiefly by Adam Arnold, with the purroduction management by Lissa Patitillo and the cover design by KC Fabellon.
 
We are cheering for the girls’ attempts to find the ideal balance of the food, exercise, work & leisure amidst the tempting vices which can be hard to resist! Naoe is quite the smart, kind chap who seems to have the sincerely altruistic desire to coach them into the friendlier, healthier lifestyle. We have not seen much of Akino – sensei, but hopefully that will escalate! 
 
The art is quite delightful, with great attention given to the characters’ expressions, poses, fashions, and the anatomical details, especially the musculature in the work out scenes. The architectural & landscape scenic art is extremely detailed, with great use of the graphic FX to emphasize the tone, ambiance and sounds! Ah, that is all for our comic book & manga mewsings, but there are other mewsings going on in

Dach:
Welcome to my “dog cave”! This is where I display my collectibles and play games. Oh and there are snacks on the bar. Whatcha think?

Toy Talk, with Na-Ling’s review of the 
Marvel Legends Mystique action figure!
 
Na Ling:
Arigato, nya! We like to collect the figures, dolls and statues of the inpurrational heroines & femme fatales of the movies, TV, games, books and comics, so we were pleased to see the latest action figure of Raven Darkholme, a.k.a Mystique, nya! She is the shape shifting mewtant girl with the lovely Blue skin & auburn hair who fist appurred in Ms. Marvel #16 in 1978, nya!
 
She has the complicated history as the villain and the hero in the comics, and in the movies she has been supurrbly purrtrayed by Morgan Lily, Jennifer Lawrance, and Rebecca Romjin, nya! This Walgreens excusive action figure of her is splendidly designed, sculpted & painted, based upon the original design by the great comics artist Dave Cockrum, nya!
 
She iis 5 ft. 10 in tall and 120 lbs in the comics, so this 6 in. tall figure is of the 1/12 scale, nya. She is quite meticulously detailed, from the strands of her purrt  shoulder – length hair, the mysterious Golden eyes, and the widdle skull ornament on her forehead to the musculature of her lithe physique, the drapurry of the White tabard, and the Gold skull belt low upon the hips, nya!
 
She is accessorized by the large blaster rifle, and the alternate head that appurrs to be shape-shifting into Rogue’s head, and the bonus head of Lilandra the empurress of the galactic Shi’ar  Empire, nya! The semi – Rogue head can fit upon either the Mystique or Rogue figure’s body, and the Lilandra head can be swapped with Silver Sable’s head, nya!
 
Mystiques’s points of articulation are in her neck, abs, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips,  thighs, knees and ankles, so she is very posable, nya! I am very pleased with this latest figure of Carol, and we have found the good spot on the shelf to display her next to her first X-Men movie version figure, nya! Nyow for the review of another Marvelous toy, onee-chan will discuss
 
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors 
“Secret Identity” Squirrel Girl doll, nya!
 
Ji Yun:
Hai! We enjoy the adventures of  Marvel Comics’s supurr heroine, college student & nanny Doreen Green a.k.a. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, nya! She first appurred in Marvel Super-Heroes vol. 2 #8 in 1991, and has starred in her own comics plus the Marvel Rising comics & animated series, nya! 
 
Her supurr powers include the amazing agility, strength, senses, tail, claws, and squirrel talk, nya! This 11 in. tall posable fashion doll is part of Hasbro’s Marvel Rising purroduct line which also includes the dolls of her friends Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, Quake, America, Ghost Spider and Inferno, nya. 
 
Since the character is supposedly 5 ft. 3 in. tall, I reckon the doll is of the 1/5.7 scale, nya. They are available in the different outfit packages, such as Target’s exclusive “Secret identity” package, which includes the Doreen doll plus 2 outfits and the widdle figure of her pet squirrel, nya!
 
She is nicely designed, sculpted & painted with the cheerfully peppy expurression, the soft Brown fiber tail & hip – length braided Auburn hair, nya. Her everyday civilian outfit is compurrised of the Orange shirt with the acorn emblem, White fur – trimmed sleeveless Blue vest, Dark Green pants, Brown boots. hat & satchel, nya.
 
Her hero outfit is compurrised of the Reddish Brown shirt, White fur – trimmed Green jacket, Brown shorts, Dark Green leggings, and the squirrel ear headband, nya! I am very pleased with the delightful doll, and we have found the good spot on the shelf to display her betwixt the dolls of America and Captain Marvel, nya!
 
Mike:
Star Wars: Resistance  Torra Doza and Synara San action figures
 
It’s an exciting time for Star Wars fans, with the forthcoming new live- action movie & TV series, new seasons of the animated Clone Wars and Resistance series, a new video game, the theme parks, nd of course lotsa new merchandise, including the 1/18 & 1/12 scale size action figures aplenty! 
 
That includes several 1/18 scale action figures from the Star Wars: Resistance animated series, which is set between the movies Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Voiced by actress Myrna Velasco, and based at the Colossus Station on the ocean planet Castilon, Torra Doza is the zestfully peppy 15 year old human flying ace who pilots racing and fighter craft.
 
This great looking 3.5” figure depicts her in the Red & Light Blue flight suit with the White boots, greaves, poleyns, gloves, vambraces,  pauldrons, breast & back plates, with splendid detail from the top of her double odango-bun Brown coiffure to the livery & Orange stripes on her outfit. Also included is a variant helmet head, with a dandy clear visor so that you can see her eyes!
 
Voiced by actress Nazneen Contractor, Synara San is the mysterious loner who scavenges the ocean & island for ship wreckage to salvage. Like  the Jedi such as Barriss Offee & Luminara Unduli, she is of the Mirialan species, This also great 3.75” figure depicts her in the Black tights with the Gray bolero jacket, White equipment belt, knee pads, boots gloves holster.
 
She is nicely detailed from her long Black ponytail to the Blue markings on her Pink skin; and is accessorized with a helmet and hold-out blaster pistol. Both figures are meticulously designed, sculpted and painted, with the ball –  jointed neck, shoulders and hips; and are balanced well enough to stand up without requiring a (not included) base. So, I understand that Dach recently bought a
 
My Little Pony Equestria Girls DJ Pon-3 mini figure!
 
Dach:
Yep! Unlike Tara-chan & Trini-chan, I have only recently begun to collect the Equestria girls dolls & figures, since that pony spin – off became a TV series. I already had the 4.75″  figures of Fluttershy, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Sunset Shimmer and Flash Sentry, some of which are sold individually or in accessorized sets, but I finally acquired the  the teenage human umamimi version of DJ Pon-3! 
 
She started out as many of the background characters, but quickly became a fan favorite.  I don’t think that she has ever spoken, but as the great DJ she expresses herself though the music that she plays! This figure is meticulously designed, sculpted & painted to faithfully capture the look & spirit of the character, wearing the Blue-trimmed front- zippered short dress  with theBlue belt & trainers, Black – rimmed Purple sunglasses, Purple leggings & fingerless gloves.
 
The details are lovely from her perked pony ear pinna that rise from her hair to the beamed quarter – note cutie mark on her skirt! There’s articulation in her neck, shoulders & hips, and those ball joints are nicely concealed by her attire!  Well I should go make my rounds to check on things, but feel free to make yourselves at home, help yourselves to the bar and play any of the games!  (cals Valentinya) So how is everything going?

Valentinya:

The images include illustrations, photos and mixed medias, nya!
 
Some of the images in the mewseum are sexy, and some of them might depict artistic nudity, but most are very tame, and none of them 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!

Then we have the  “Tail Bait I – IV” series of 4 pics which depict the views of Ilyana swearing the slingshot maillot whilst snorkle diving underwater to successfully test the new tail purrotector against the eels that try to chomp her tempting tail, nya. The ironic result is that  delicious, nutritious eel winds up as the sushi in the catgirls’ tummies, nya!
 
Nextly is the “Seaster Eggs” drawing of mermaid, catgirl, centauress and faerie friends enjoying the tasty treats from the sea, nya! Seaster is the the local holiday in Apurril when mermaids give their best friends the home-made chocolate Seaster Eggs, nya!

Then in the “Petite Pixy Purrch” pic we see another faerie, this time in the maritime forest, nya! She has found the ideal comfy mushroom on which to paws from the long flight, nya! This purrticular faerie has the lovely lepidopteran wings of the Caligo type, which have the large eyespots pattern, which tend to deter any animals that have the taste for the wings, nya!
 
Our next scene of the relaxation moves indoors for the “Comfy Couchy Kitty”, nya! This depicts the catgirl wearing the cropped tank top and shorts whilst reclining upon the couch in the den of her beach house, nya! From the looks of the coffee table, It looks as if she has been leisurely reading the latest issues of the Cat State and Southern Purring magazines, nya!
 
Yvonne:
Our next image of a catgirl friend is “Purretti”, nya! Posing in her teensy bikini here i Purreti, who is the highly scoring Jammer on the island’s women’s flat track roller derby team, nya! Her family is originally from Thane, India, and her purrents reside on the mainland in Mooreseville NC, which is about 200 miles from her home here at Catgirl island, nya. 
 
Then we are delighted to display the pic of Purretti’s best friend “Brooke” who is the teenage nixie, lifeguard and student who aspires to be a purramedic, nya. Wearing the shorts, flip flops and knotted shirt, she is purrched upon the stone wall near the shore, where she enjoys the grande size cup of yummy milky bubble tea, nya!
 
Then we are pleased to purrsent the pic of our friend “Ulana” by Mike Moon, nya! Mike used the pencil, pens, Photoshop CS2 & the mouse for this illustration of Ulana who is a lamia / snake girl, flutist, snake dance instructor, body builder, wife & mom, nya! She is wearing the fishnet athletic bra whilst lifting the barbell, nya. Purrhaps y’all have seen the pic of her daughter Lina the lake lifeguard, nya!
 
Nextly is the inked pencil scene of the “Nekomimi Nummy Truck”, which depicts the family, friends & felines queued up at the cheerful catgirls’ food truck full of delicious and nutritious seafood, drinks and desserts, nya! They appurr to have dozens of tasty treats listed on the truck’s menu, nya!
 
After that is the “Meowgical Maid” which is the surpurrise pic of Val-san flying upon her broom, nya! She loves her job of cleaning & tidying Dr. Dach Savage’s mansion, because she is highly paid with the great benefits, health insurance, flexible schedule, many vacation days, free meals, the big bedroom, and gets to enjoy all of the amenities, nya!
 
Bunni:
Hai!  In Guest Gallery Four http://catgirlisland.net/art/gallery/guest4.html we are delighted to display more illustrations by illustrator / musician / cosplayer Rebecca Brogden http://www.rbrogdenart.com, who was the guest for our September 2009 Mew! However, I must warn y’all that the next three images depict the girls of sadness, tragedy and pain, as part of Rebecca’s Dark series.
 
Firstly of those is pencil, pen & copic marker illustration of “Emptyness”, which depicts the traumatized and pale widdle china doll girl who has the heart -shaped abyssal hole in her chest whilst she is snared by the tangle of strings. I would interpret this as the crisis of the heart and sense of loss whilst feeling trapped in the despairing predicament.
 
Secondly of the dark subjects is the pencil, pen & copic marker illustration of the “Dark Night of the Soul”, which depicts the weeping faerie whose wings appear to be limp and bloody during the cold moonlit Winter night.  I would interpret this as the image of emotional anguish and physical pain of being stranded lonely in the harsh environment.
 
Thirdly of the of the dark subjects is the pencil, pen & copic marker illustration of the “Bandages”, which depicts the crying Blonde girl trying to wrap her wounds, appearing to be quite neglected. We are honored to give these lasses a new good home at the Catgirl Island Meweum of Art, where they will be loved and cared for by many friends!
 
Now it is time to balance those with the cheerful images of “Chibi Ochako, Froppy, Deku & Shoto”! They are young super heroes in the My Hero Academia manga & anime! At upper right is Ochako who has the gravitational powers, at upper left is Froppy who has the amphibious abilities, at lower left is Deku who has the super strength, and at lower right is Shoto who has the fire & ice powers!
 
Then is Rebecca’s digital image of “Dragon Nystia”! Perhaps y’all have seen the prior pics of Nystia Nightshade the shape-shifting vampiric dark faerie, alchemist and idol star? She is Rebecca’s character in Mike’s monthly tabletop fantasy role-playing game! Here in her dragon girl form, she is posing triumphantly amongst the high misty mountains, wearing the Thulian Pink toga that matches her lovely wings!
 
Lastly but not leastly is “Pixie Lights”, Rebecca’s pencil, pen & copic marker illustration of the cute young elf girl in the saffron – colored sundress twirling happily amongst the balls of nocturnal light! So, what do y’all think of the art?
 
Valentinya:
(cries) Wahh! I am not worthy, nya!
 
Lana:
I think she likes Mike’s illustration of her! I think it faithfully captured her likeness, spirit, and the detail of her magickal items!
 
Peppurr-Mintra:
Hai hai, and the Brooke pic too, nya! I know the very spot where she is purrched upon the wall, nya! I hope to be there when Brooke and her mom see the art, nya!
 
Maeridyth:
I also like Purretti’s peppy expression, the sheen of her silky hair, and the swishy motion of her supple tail, nya!
 
Valentinya:
I think that my favorite aspect of the Tail Bait series is the sense of the story of Ilyana’s tail armor, although she is lucky that the eel did not prefer the thigh meat1
 
Lana:
I like the attention to the details from the fishnet panels of her swimsuit & the serration of her knife to her pierced belly button and the fins of the eel!
 
Peppurr-Mintra:
The details of the sushi are making me hungry, but I will have to wait until tonight’s Aftermew luau, nya!
 
Maeridyth:
I have the craving too, so let’s move along to the next work of art! I like the monochramatic sienna hues of the Cat Run pics, nya!
 
Valentinya:
It certainly captures Nya-sensei’s purrtraiture, physique & form, with the good purrspective of the running trail to the ocean, nya!
 
Lana:
Oh gosh I just realized that in the Seaster Eggs pic, the centauress has already cracked her egg open into the goblet! Say, I don’t recognize her…
 
Peppurr-Mintra:
Oh that’s Ellie’a aunt from Mount Airy, but alas I am unfamiliar with the Petite Pixy who is purrched atop the mushroom amidst the lush vegetation, nya!
 
Maeridyth:
Oh that is Mahadevi, nya! She is the Pona-Turi (sea faerie) i undersea cinematographer, nya.
 
Lana:
She’s mewsually in the deep and does not come ashore that often!
 
Valentinya:
So desu, nya! My favorite aspect of the Ulana pic is the detail of her scales, muscles. tattoos, and the fishnet athletic bra, nya!
 
Peppurr-Mintra
I like the details of the food truck pic, from the menus on the truck to the bottles of the sauces on the counter, nya! 
 
Maeridyth:
This month’s art sure is the emotional roller coaster as we get to Rebecca’s dark trilogy, nya! I will need one of Val’s magick +2 tissues for the sad tears, nya!
 
Valentinya:
The trilogy might brim with the tragic sadness, but it does display Rebecca’s versatile artistic range- I just hope that she did not have to suffer for her art, nya!
 
Lana:
The trilogy is quite ironic, you know, as the images are nonetheless quite beautiful, from the compositions, poses & expressions to the lines, color & light.
 
Peppurr-Mintra
Hai hai, and there is the lovely concentric symmetry too, for example, note how the hair twirls around the pixy as the lights spiral to encircle her, nya!
 
Maeridyth:
I am always glad to see more images of Nystia! As the dragon girl she has such lovely scalloped wings, the firm muscular tail, and the confident gaze, nya!
 
Peppurr-Mintra:
Rebecca is equally adept at the original or the fan art, be it of the regular or the chibi purropurrtions, done in either the traditional or the digital media, nya!
 
Lana:
Oh those chibi style pics of Deku, Froppy, Ochaku & Shoto are quite richly vibrant with dazzling energy and the confident determination of the heroes!
 
Valentinya:
Thank you for showing us the new art, nya! Our borders the “Third Shift Crew” have arisen, so I should fetch their breakfast , nya!
(she telepurrts to the kitchen while the four borders do their yoga, then brings food to them at the 16 ft x 32 ft. vaulted cedar purrrgola by the 48 ft x 24 ft. outdoor pool)
