Manfried the Man: A Graphic Novel
Caitlin Major, Kelly Bastow
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Quirk Books
In a world where humanoid cat people keep cute little humans as pets, average cat-guy Steve Catson relies on his lazy, testy, slovenly pet man Manfried to get him through heartaches, tribulations, and challenges of being single, underemployed, and lonely. It s like a Garfield comic strip in reverse!
In the world of Manfried the Man, the roles of cats and humans are reversed: humanoid cats are in charge, while tiny, dim-witted, lovable little people are kept as pets. Manfried, a stray man taken in by slacker Steve Catson, becomes the Garfield to his John Arbuckle: lazy, selfish, and sometimes maddening in his weird human behavior. But ultimately the pair depend on each other to get through life s troubles. In this book-length story, Steve find himself stuck with a dead-end job and nonexistent love-life, while all his friends are moving on, getting better jobs, getting married and having kittens. When Manfried runs away from home, Steve suddenly loses the one constant in his life, and has to muster all his meager resources to find his best friend and bring him home safe. By story s end both Steve and Manfried realize they re capable of so much more than they thought.
