The Story

Cats have been disappearing in the wake of a ravenous monster borne of forbidden magic, and the Council of Cats tasks three teens with stopping the onslaught. Spirited from their homes in the Appalachian hills, Chicago suburbs, and California Bay Area, hardworking Riley, gamer Alex, and booksmart Sidney find themselves talking to cats in the Florida Keys, granted magical powers, and asked to save the world. Assisted by a motley cast of purr machines, from the stout-slinging King of the Cats to the falconry aficionado Master Cat, the trio embarks on a global quest, battling villains from real-life cat folktales in order to recapture an ancient cat god’s powerful relics. Along the way, they must cultivate their powers to control the elements, ally with a secret order of wizard-historians, juggle jobs, deal with parents, make sure the cat’s food bowl is still full…and maybe, just maybe, learn to work together.

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 one tuxedo cat, she proudly feels she ascended to the next level of cat lady by making a cat comic. She thanks her siblings, Cassidy and Cody Cameron, for bouncing ideas and supporting the project.

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