The Story

Riley, Sidney, and Alex are three regular kids with not-so-regular cat problems.

When the Great Cat departed this world thousand years ago, it left behind Relics, which grant divine powers to their users. Cats have safeguarded the Relics for millennia, until a desperate cat revives the ancient magic to save his human friend—giving rise to a blood-thirsty monster with the penultimate Relic. Worried that the disappearance of humans could mean the end of treats and back rubs, the cats of the world must choose three people, so-called Guardians, to find and protect the most powerful Relic. In return, the chosen three gain command of the elements and the ability to take feline form. But unbeknownst to the cats and their appointed heroes, other forces have been watching the Relics, too…

Show kindness to a cat—you never know what could happen!

The Team

Cortney Cameron is the writer for Catians. She’s been working on the current iteration of the Catians story since 2011, but the idea started as a childhood roleplaying game. By day, she works as a hydrogeologist researching water resources. Currently owned by two cats, she proudly feels she ascended to the next level of cat lady by making a cat comic. Her siblings, Cassidy and Cody Cameron, have provided financial and creative assistance with the project.

Artist Luyi Bennett has been instrumental in getting the project off the ground as an editor, illustrator, and character designer. More recently, illustrator Isaac Anderson, colorist Sal Monaco, and letterer Reed Hinckley-Barnes have helped bring the story to life!
