Now in one volume: the acclaimed tale of a starship run by cats! The intrepid Captain Ginger struggles to keep his fellow felines united against a hostile universe—and their own worst feline instincts, too. Featuring the entire original miniseries, plus two rare extra stories and a sketchbook of character designs.

When the human race died out, the cats inherited the Earth! Or at least one starship. Now the intrepid Captain Ginger struggles to keep his fellow felines united against a hostile universe. 

Introduction by Walter Simonson (Thor, Ragnarok). “This book is steeped in cat lore, cat behavior, and cat knowledge.” -Walter Simonson, from his introduction ““So wonderfully trippy and science fiction-y it reminds readers what it is about sci-fi that they love.” – Adventures in Poor Taste
