Summary

"Guaranteed laugh out loud material, Tofield's secret is successfully relating Simon's cat to any cat. Simon's cat is certainly the Snoopy of the cat world."--Chicago Tribune"Simon's Cat Off to the Vet and Other Cat-astrophes is a sweet, humorous look at feline behavior from an author with a thorough understanding of this subject matter....An excellent holiday gift for any cat fancier."--Phyllis O’Beollain, Examiner.com"Simon's Cat: Off to the Vet has dozens of hilarious cartoons of varying lengths....The cartoons are about more than just taking a reluctant cat to the vet (which involves a cardboard box and perfect timing). There are cartoons about destroyed gardens, destroyed bird feeders, destroyed clothes and destroyed furniture. But there are also cartoons about the affection cats can show us, and how we return the love...Every cat lover will love Simon's Cat: Off to the Vet...and Other Cat-astrophes."--About.com"Whether you are 5 or 95, this is sure to draw a smile from you."--Sharon Damon, Examiner.com"My reaction to each new Simon's Cat video or book is the same: YAY!! In this brand-new collection, acclaimed cartoonist Simon Tofield tackles every cat owner’s nightmare: going to the vet. It tells the story of how Simon's Cat seems to instinctively know a trip to the vet is about to happen and the lengths he’ll go to avoid it, while long-suffering Simon is forced to try all kinds of tricks to get him to cooperate. Sound familiar?"--Catster"Witty and wonderful, Simon's Cat: Off to the Vet is a treat for cat lovers or anyone who loves laughter."--Midwest Book Review"Whether you read it straight through or pace yourself with one or two cartoons at a time, this is a book that will cheer the gloomiest day. Add the videos, some snacks, a favorite beverage and a cat on your lap--it's a little vacation in the middle of daily life."--Kings River Life MagazineIn the last five years, Simon's Cat has become a global phenomenon. Star of thirty-nine films, which have been watched over 500 million times, and winner of a dozen major industry awards, Simon's Cat has captured the hearts of a worldwide audience. In this brand-new book we see Simon's Cat face any feline's most dreaded scenario--he's off to the vet. And he's not at all happy about it.Sharing its theme with the first-ever full-color Simon's Cat feature animation, funded by a record-breaking Indiegogo campaign and due to be released alongside the new book, Simon's Cat Off to the Vet...and Other Cat-astrophes is packed with over 240 pages of hilarious new gags and adventures featuring our favorite furry friend and his companions--both old and new.Says Tofield: "Taking my naughty cat to the vet is one of the most requested film ideas from our fans. It was because of this that I started work on a new film and book based on the crazy situations that arise during these trips! A visit to the vet can be quite a stressful time in real life for both cats and their owners, however my goal is to bring out the comedy, and introduce a cast of extra characters for Simon's Cat to meet, as he gets his claws into his new surroundings!"

    Contributions by Dorian Alexander, Janine Coleman, Gabriel Gianola, Mel Gibson, Michael Goodrum, Tim Hanley, Vanessa Hemovich, Christina Knopf, Christopher McGunnigle, Samira Nadkarni, Ryan North, Lisa Perdigao, Tara Prescott, Philip Smith, and Maite Ucaregui The explosive popularity of San Diego's Comic-Con, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One, and Netflix's Jessica Jones and Luke Cage all signal the tidal change in superhero narratives and mainstreaming of what were once considered niche interests. Yet just as these areas have become more openly inclusive to an audience beyond heterosexual white men, there has also been an intense backlash, most famously in 2015's Gamergate controversy, when the tension between feminist bloggers, misogynistic gamers, and internet journalists came to a head. The place for gender in superhero narratives now represents a sort of battleground, with important changes in the industry at stake. These seismic shifts--both in the creation of superhero media and in their critical and reader reception--need reassessment not only of the role of women in comics, but also of how American society conceives of masculinity. Gender and the Superhero Narrative launches ten essays that explore the point where social justice meets the Justice League. Ranging from comics such as Ms. Marvel, Batwoman: Elegy, and Bitch Planet to video games, Netflix, and cosplay, this volume builds a platform for important voices in comics research, engaging with controversy and community to provide deeper insight and thus inspire change.

    Part 3 of the 3-part Future Echoes serial. Harlan is a brilliant scientist who follows his own path and refuses to let anyone tell him how to live just because he's a wheelchair user. He has only one passion: to prove that there is no such thing as the supernatural. He doesn't believe in ghosts any more than he believes in love. One night in an abandoned chateau on the outskirts of Paris just might change his mind . . . if he survives.
     
    Because even though no one's lived in the old Vine estate for over a century, Harlan's not alone there anymore.
