How To Talk To Your Cat About Gun Safety

How To Talk To Your Cat About Gun Safety

Look, we just want you to be safe, okay? The time is right. This zine answers common questions like, "So my cat finds a gun, what's the big deal?"

SelfMadeHero has been consistently putting out amazing graphic novels for a while now, but this one might just be the best to date. Stunning artwork, and an eerie story with a wounded elephant, a blind pig-keeper, an unnerving hospital and an awakened corpse. You can't thumb through it and not want to immediately plop down in a chair and read it cover to cover.
