I first “met” Prince Pangur Ban two years ago, when Holly contacted me because he had been having issues with a sensitive tummy and some itchiness. In the course of our initial conversation, I found out that Pangur is not only a stunningly handsome and much loved Himalayan, he is also the star of his own comic strip.
From 2011 to 2015, Holly shared Pangur’s life with her wonderful, silly puff of fluff on her webcomic page, and now, she is collecting all of the strips for a full color paperback book. She’ll also add a few new, never before seen comics created just for the book. I am in awe of Holly’s ability to capture Pangur’s personality with just a few strokes of a pen, and I was delighted when she asked me to write the foreword for the book.
The book will be published as a Limited Edition, and is sure to become a collector’s item. It will only be available to Kickstarter backers and clients of Holly’s studio. You can pre-order the book on Kickstarter and receive some amazing perks, ranging from a signed edition of the book to t-shirts, pens and totebags featuring Prince Pangur. A limited number of backers will receive a cartoon or watercolor portrait of their cat. Holly will even create a brand new comic strip featuring you and your cat – this perk is only available for ten lucky backers. Here’s a sample of one of the many perks:
