Alright. Let’s go over this again. If you inherit a “weird book”, and don’t take it seriously, do not be surprised if you summon something. If you describe not taking it seriously as a “hippie sort of thing…for fun, you know?” you’re going to summon a big something.
So. Many. Cats.
If you remember my review of Purr Evil # 1: no cats, no explanation. Purr Evil #2? All cats, all the explanations. Not to spoil things but it gets … there are just so many cats. Teen romance, so many cats, and Deb worship. It’s a lot to unpack. Did I mention there were just a ton of cats?
We catch up with Deb and her Lover Boy Richard, running off to enjoy Deb’s last day in Seattle. The young love that started in the first book is only getting sweeter, riiiight up until- you guessed it- Deb worship. And cats. While racing towards Romeo and WTF-ette, Deb’s mother reveals the circumstances around Deb’s conception and birth (remember what I said about not taking weird books seriously?) to which Richard’s father understandably calls shenanigans.
Unfortunately, the Cult of Deb has arisen and it’s thanks to the friggen cats. There are very few situations where too many cats are a problem and when they brainwash people into worshiping someone that’s too many cats. Don’t let that keep you from starting that foster rescue you’ve always wanted. Just make sure the cats are purrr evil~. I’ll see myself out.
As always, the art is lovely. The color is vibrant. The story is insane but in the best of ways. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I’m going to follow this book until I know what’s going on and then some.
Do I know Sabrina? Sabrina…Sabrina….Oh, you mean her? Yeahh. She’s wild. Homegirl throws solo dance parties in her bedroom. She writes like nobody’s reading…because they aren’t (yet). She is an award-winning baker and has seen every episode of every season of ALL the Star Treks, and Stargates except Stargate Universe because it wasn’t right. Perpetual teenager. 4’11 of sass and sarcasm. She’s obsessed with cats. Single if you can believe it. All around nerd, and just too weird for her own good. AND SHE’S PROUD OF IT?
