Manfried Saves the Day

A comic by Caitlin Major & Kelly Bastow.

Caitlin Major & Kelly Bastow

Get ready for an all-new adventure starring web-comic sensation Manfried, the crabby but lovable pet man of slacker tomcat Steve Catson. Things seem to be looking up for them: Steve has a new job making comics and a burgeoning romance with his purrfriend Henrietta. Manfried is making new friends at the local man shelter, helping stray men become socialized so they can find new homes. But when a literal fat cat arrives to develop the neighborhood and shut down Henrietta's man shelter, the stress pushes Steve and Henrietta apart. Meanwhile Manfried is none too happy about sharing his home with a younger, cuter, friendlier rival for Steve's attention: a stray man named Garfield. Can Steve and Henrietta resolve their differences and raise the cash to save the shelter... and is entering Manfried into the Manflower Man Show the best way to do it? Fans and newbies alike will find plenty to enjoy in this funny, topsy-turvy cat tale based on the popular Manfried the Man tumblr. (From Quirk Books)
