Merry December! December seems to be like, let's-do-all-the-things-let's-go-let's-do-it-go-go-go so we can then go and lay on the couch and eat cookies for two weeks. Literally, that is my dream. Also Star Wars.
The Coziest Mystery, solved.
'Cozies' is apparently a real word, and I am delighted.
Happy Halloweeeeeeeeeeeen!!!!! Hope it spoopy!
The End of this story! I feel like I should re-iterate that those are duck decoys, not actual ducks. No imaginary ducks were hurt in the making of this comic.
What a Dramatic crime scene! Who could have possibly stolen Lady Duckington's duck decoys??? Was it.....an inside job?!?
I can't believe Catman's relaxing vacation was interrupted by a mystery! How novel.
Wow, Catman solved a mystery! Look at that. He really is the world's best cat detective.
So I applied for TCAF this year and they asked to be linked to an image file (I had no idea this was a thing?) So I walked through the very nice squarespace tutorial, and now this is kind of a weird blog post. Also hey, TCAF people, if you are looking at this, 'sup. I am 100% chill about this.
Gosh indeed! Where could the statue be? Will our intrepid detective crack the case????
Catman is such a good Cat Detective. I am very proud of him.
"A Cat Among Pigeons" is an Agatha Christie novel that I have never read--I imagine that it is exactly this, only without a cat detective.
Listen: These bees are guilty. I don't care what this dude says. Also check out that vintage bee smoker!!! I totally googled bee keeping for this 100% accurate comic, and a bee smoker is used to calm bees down. Also the first commercial beekeeper in the United States name is Moses Quinby. The more you know!
I lied, this is totally a comic about murder. What's that butterfly? Is it...a clue???
Who's this nice old lady? Her flowers sure are nice. This is in no way a comic about murder.
Welp, mystery solved! Good Job, everyone, I'm proud of you. Let's stop making fun of Murder on the Orient Express, and instead, make fun of something else!
Sometimes it's really hard coming up with all these action packed scenes, y'know? Will Catman ever catch a break?
Oh! The rail car dining room-thing they are in is based on this reference picture:
Will that link work? who knows! I've created a Catman board on pinterest too, to save all my reference pictures, so hopefully that will be helpful.
'Sup, It's Catman, woo! I read "Murder on the Orient Express" for the first time a while ago--I haven't read any Agatha Christie since high school, and it was surprisingly good! I liked how it was structured--basically it was just Poroit conducting interviews, interupted by luggage searches. One chapter was just everyone thinking! Quality.
