I've been reading some Korean webcomics recently, to brush up on my rusty Korean skills. And I came upon this charming autobiographical comic mini-series about a woman and her cat which is very much attached to her.

The storyline and premise also struck a chord with me because there were some striking parallels between the comic's story and my sister's life. She had also just happened have adopted two cats this December which she strongly suspects are partially Turkish Vans, a close relative to Turkish Angora cats, one of which is featured in the comic.

I knew she would get a kick out of the comic, and since I've never done something like this before (translating a comic, and doing something nice for my sister ever), I decided to give it a try and translate it.

CosmicBookNews has the preview.

It's all been building to this. King Kong vs. Godzilla. Hogan vs. Flair. Pepsi vs. Coke.

3 behind the cut.

It all comes down to this. )

The Kkore Invasion of the Uncharted Territories continues. As the rest of the galactic ruling powers have been brought down and decimated, the reformed Peacekeepers under Aeryn Sun's command meet the Kkore and Grennij forces.

They do not do so well.

What price survival. )

This is a follow-up to my previous post about the Three of a Kind crossover featuring Flash, Green Lantern and Green Arrow. This issue concludes the story with a criminal trial. Unlike the comic book trials I've read here before this one is pretty straightforward: no clones, no sidetracking, no questionable judgements, and what's more, it gives a rare glimpse into the legal status of superheroes in the DC universe.

Some pages from back in Superman #20 (Aug 1988) where Cat Grant tries to seduce young Jimmy Olsen. Gave me a giggle.

So, if you checked out the CBR preview of this ish linked to awhile back, you know what the dragons are really up to: It's time for their eggs to hatch, and they need to swallow the eggs to carry them up into space so they can be properly born. If the Avengers get in the dragons' way, they fully intend to mow 'em down, so it's up to the Pet Avengers to hold their erstwhile comrades back.

This they do, and admirably, and once the dragons have flown unimpeded into orbit (for a beautiful wordless hatching scene, thank you Ig Guara!) Throg explains the situation. Thor is most understanding, and apologetic for his hotheadedness. He summons the Avengers off to help rebuild the world, and in another lovely power pose, Throg declares "Avengers stand together. We will help." So they board the quinjet, Mockingbird carrying Hairball most adorably, and we see a big green hand grip the rim of the volcano from within as it flies off.

The End...or is it? )

Something tells me we maybe haven't seen the last of that Foom character.

4 pages under the cut; warning! layout-breaky double page spread!
