It seems that a couple years ago Captain Marvel’s comic book cat Chewie was the star of a comic strip series that appeared on Instagram and as variant covers for a half dozen Marvel comic books.
MARVEL MEOW, a cat-themed mini-comic series by Japanese artist Nao Fuji, has been clawing around on Marvel’s Instagram feed for a while now in celebration of Captain Marvel’s feline friend in Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel”
Now Marvel, in association with VIZ Media, will collect those comic strips in a book.
“Coming October 12, Marvel Meow is a collection of variant covers first seen on Marvel’s official Instagram comic strips in celebration of Carol Danvers furry sidekick. While known as the breakout star—Goose—in the hit film Captain Marvel, the comic strips honor the original flerkin cat Chewie,” Viz Media shared today. “Across nine panels, follow Chewie interacting with Wolverine or rather pestering him only to end up twinning in the closing panel, or witness what happens when she meets The Merc with a Mouth and Dogpool (who we meet from an alternate universe) chases her endlessly.”
[T]his book will come together as an anthology of sorts. Marvel Meow will contain a bunch of strip comics released previously on Marvel’s Instagram. The art, which Nao Fuji oversaw, is all about cute cats and brave heroes.

Thus proving my thesis that every comic needs a cat.
