from Xerography Debt #31 Review by Fred Argoff
I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve seen KING-CAT reviewed in other zines. Now I have a copy of my very own to peruse. It’s a comic zine, presenting short stories and one-panel illustrations with a minimum of verbiage. Issue #72 starts off with “Breathe,” what happens when a Faith Hill song comes on the radio unexpectedly. This issue also features the King-Cat Top Forty (surviving is #1, followed closely by Herdez brand salsa. And just for good measure, there are actually 50 items on the list). (Posted on 8/13/12)
from Xerography Debt #27 Review by Eric Lyden
This issue marks the 20th anniversary of KING CAT . I’m not sure what’s a more impressive feat: doing a zine for 20 years or doing one for 70 issues. I realize both feats are pretty interrelated, but they are distinct enough to be impressive in totally different ways. KING CAT has always been a very low-key comic. Some of the stories are as simple as John going to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription. Now the stories certainly get more interesting than that, but the thing is that even the most banal stories John tells convey some sort of emotion. Through his simple (but more complex than they look) drawings he manages to tell these wonderful and emotion-packed stories. This is definitely one of the best mini comics/zines out there and has been for about 20 years. (Posted on 8/12/12)
