Cat Person is a collection of comics by cartoonist Seo Kim. Begun as a personal challenge to create daily, the comics feature a variety of themes from the silly to the serious. Characterized by a charming drawing style and frequently featuring the cartoonist and her farcical feline Jimmy, these are the best Sunday comics you've never seen. Seo Kim was born in Seoul, Korea, and then immigrated to Toronto, Ontario, just a few months later. Kim currently lives in Los Angeles, California, and works as a storyboard artist for the massively successful Cartoon Network show Adventure Time.
"How does Kim manage to create comics that are so light-hearted and endearing, yet not in the least saccharine or cheesy?" -- Ken Parille, The Comics Journal "The illustrations cover a variety of topics including Seo's cat Jimmy, everyday life situations, and a peek into the amusing aspects of a long distance relationship. You'll giggle and probably say "D'aww" to yourself more than once." -- Amy Ratcliffe, Nerdist "This book is a winner. Even the cat jokes are not tired--a difficult feat in a world saturated with feline cartoon books and webcomics." -- Publishers Weekly "Yes! An illustrator who's not afraid to draw genuinely hilarious creatures larking around and being silly. Bird riding on a worm, lobster on a date with a crab, dinosaur getting hot and steamy with a car -- you name/dream it, Seo Kim has drawn it! Her style is cute without being saccharine, humorous without being pushy, and pretty much the answer to my Tumblr prayers." -- Liv Siddall, It's Nice That
