The author, Porad Gasan-zade, says about My Angry Cat from Space:
My zine was created out of my combined love for space and animals .. especially cats. The story takes us to space for a few brief moments, where a weirdly shaped comet makes its haphazard connection with Earth (destroying many random New York buildings in the process). After the smoke clears, a curious gal (my shameless self-insert) investigates the crash site and discovers that Earth's latest nuclear hazard is ... a giant cat. Pleasantries aside, the girl makes an offer that the alienated feline cannot refuse: fast food. Anyone would hold off control of the planet for a Big Mac, right? Unfortunately, in a ridiculous tum of events, things do not go as planned.
To summarize, this zine was both a challenge and a fun trip to create - organizing the various colors into their respective shapes was probably the hardest part. In terms of story, the zine is not meant to be taken deeply; in most of my work, I usually cloak dark pasts and inner personalities with colorful and laughable characters. This zine, however, was a pleasant experience in making a story without a particular meaning. Why can't a story just be plain nonsense? It's not to say that deep stories are not enjoyable to me; they arc what I strive to be good at. What I want to say is, is that people need to let go of seriousness sometimes.
(But hey, if you find a particular morale in a giant purple cat having a tantrum over fast food, I'm not judging).
