Angel Catbird, Volume 1
Angel Catbird, Volume 1 | Margaret Atwood
Lauded novelist Margaret Atwood and acclaimed artist Johnnie Christmas collaborate on one of the most highly anticipated comic book and literary events of the year! On a dark night, young genetic engineer Strig Feleedus is accidentally mutated by his own experiment and merges with the DNA of a cat and an owl. What follows is a humorous, action-driven, pulp-inspired superhero adventure-- with a lot of cat puns. Published in over thirty-five countries, Margaret Atwood is one of the most important living writers of our day and is the author of more than forty books of fiction, poetry, and critical essays. Her work has won the Man Booker Prize, the Giller Prize, Premio Mondello, and more. "Angel Catbird" is her first graphic novel series. Atwood's The Blind Assassin was named one of Time magazine's 100 best English-language novels published since 1923 and her recent "MaddAddam Trilogy" is currently being adapted into an HBO television show by Darren Aronofsky

It was interesting to see Margret Atwood's storytelling in a different format. I enjoyed her information in the beginning about where the story came from and how it was a long held dream to write. However, while I love Atwood, I did not love this. It was okay, but it felt like it was half told. There was just too many points to the story missing. It seems that it progressed to fast and didn‘t really explain what was going on.

I was really disappointed in this. I was once an avid graphic novel reader and I can handle a cheesy comment or two, but this was filled with them, and it wasn't because of the villain's preferences...
Coming from such a literary legend as Maragaret Atwood I think I expected something totally different. Maybe this shouldn't have been where I started reading her work.

Very interesting concept!! Margaret Atwood is amazing!! I have the book The Handmaid‘s Tale but I haven‘t read it yet. I‘m already reading Vox which is somewhat similar I heard. I already started on volume 2. Review for that probably tomorrow. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I happened to read Book 2 first, before getting to this Book 1, during Free Comic Book Day at the library last weekend. It is great fun as a YA series, for those most entertained by cutesy cat-folk. ?? Eh? "What are you up to with our Litsy stickers?" Update: ? I just got the Litsy app fix. ?

Angel Catbird led to a SpongeBob pick, during Free Comic Book Day. 😄 This cover is hilarious, with impressive scenes. -- I got the last available, while Bob and Star Wars were clearing out fast. My second pick would have been The Nightmare Before Christmas; mainly the kids theme comics this year. 🏫

Angel Catbird was my selection for the Library's Free Comic Book Day. 🤓 I was pretty much in a nerdy mood, looking at the selections and finding SpongeBob to be the most interesting, for cool covers. -- I got the 2nd last available, fairly letting the kids go first, for all the Star Wars comics.

So we all know Atwood and how subversive she can be so I had high expectations on this and unfortunately it didn't quite hit the spot. This feels more like it should have been marketed at a younger audience, it has a message and sometimes it feels like this comes before the actual story. The problem with this is there are so many great comics out now and this just doesn't live up in comparison. Read if your interested but borrow don't buy

Crystalblu I fully agree! 2y

Well I can‘t say this was a favourite. It was fun and colourful, but it was a little too cliched than I was expecting. I‘ll still read the rest of the series, but only because it is a total of three volumes.

A quirky pun-fest by Atwood - with a message about keeping cats in-doors. Light and amusing, Catbird is a throw-back to comics of the forties. Book 2 for #24in48 and knocks of #task8 on the #readharder chalenge

Having never read anything by Atwood, I didn't have any expectations to this and seeing the mixed reviews for the writing, I think I was the better for it.
Reading this pulp comic from Margaret Atwood was enjoyable and it's different... But a good different.
It's fun, a bit corny, and reads like an appreciation to the older comics.
Her introduction even mentions how much she loved reading comics after WWII.

A slight effort story-wise from the brilliant Margaret Atwood - I did really like the illustrations though. And Atwood's introduction about growing up reading comics was enjoyable and funny.

I feel a lot better after taking a break for dinner. Angel Catbird was a really fun romp with cat people and bird people and evil rat people. It's ridiculous, sure. But it's an enjoyable ridiculous. My next book is The Last of August. I don't know if I can finish it in time, but I'm going to try. #readathon

Ok, this wasn't the feminist dystopian graphic novel I'd imagined when I heard Atwood was writing one. Once I started thinking of it as a pulp comic to benefit birds and cats, I enjoyed the weirdness and brawls. The statistics across the bottom are odd at first but informative. #mommyreads #quirky #graphicnovel #ebook

Buttered toast, scrambled eggs, a new comic series (by Atwood no less!) and Yorkshire Gold with milk. Also the silence of 630 am on Saturday (although I know the 3yo is up - he was talking to himself, counting something as I crept past his door and went downstairs). Today we have plans to take my visiting in-laws to the outlet (Singaporeans love shopping) but I hope to do some reading today. What are you up to?

I had such high hopes, but in the end the story was predictable, the writing clunky, and there is nothing terribly interesting about the characters. I think this might have been a result of my high expectations getting in the way of my enjoyment, but there it is.

Despite her pedigree, Margaret Atwood should probaby stick to prose. This book reads like its author hasn't even seen a comic since the 50s.

Maybe you'll like it if you're nostalgic for the silliness of the silver age. But are you really?

brennahawleycraig See, I liked it, but mostly because it was so strange! 3y

I think it's me, not the book. I just don't seem to like graphic novels in the superhero genre.

I do love nonfiction graphic novels, any recommendations? I've read March, Persepolis and some others I can't seem to remember...

I quite enjoyed this first instalment in this series. The artwork was great and the story was interesting. The cat footnotes were a distraction. Instead of reading them with the story, I went back and read them after I finished the book. All on all, this was a fun first effort. I'll read volume 2 when I can get my hands on it. 4/5⭐️

I figure Atwood is just having a blast her, living out a childhood dream of making ultra cheesy comics. Ultra cheesy with a side of explicit moralising. And the moral of the story is "keep your cat indoors so they don't kill birds". Seriously. The book comes with cat-safety facts. Maybe they were trying for "so bad it's good", but it's just bad. Except for the colourist's process guide at the end (as pictured). That was cool.

Definitely not what I was expecting from a Margaret Atwood read. Very old school comic which I did like. Of course the downside is that it is just the first part so if I want to know what happens next I need to get the next volume. Didn't love it, didn't hate it.
