Deconstructing Comics #693: “Manga’s Scary Cats!”

by Erik Amaya

There’s a history of horror manga featuring cats, especially humans with cat features. What are some of the prominent titles in this genre? Where does this come from? Patrick has been studying this association and is here to tell us about some of the prominent titles, including Shigeru Mizuki‘s Mysterious Neko Musume (featuring a character later modified for Mizuki’s Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro) and Kazuo Umezu‘s Cat Face, The Girl with Cat Eyes, and Cat-Eyed Boy.

Comicon thanks Deconstructing Comics for allowing us to premiere episodes of their podcast. The full archive can be found on their official website, DeconstructingComics.com.
