Catland Empire

Keith Jones

Spring 2010

Catland Empire is like a Phillip K. Dick twisted with a Saturday morning cartoon graphic novel. There will exist a future world where human beings have become empty husks stripped of all memory when it comes to things like how to have fun and play games or so says Mr. Space to his associate Mr. Time. The solution? Get the cats to teach humans how to have fun again. This is all the Cat People do with their lives. They are the fun and game masters. What follows is a tangled web of psychedelic science fiction blending anti-consumerism politics and intergalactic liaisons between cats and dogs, bitter enemies kept secret from each other to avoid a planetary race war. Victor Burg is plotting to wipe out all of mankind by having his brain chip implanted drones commit genocide.

Keith Jones

Remarkable new talent Keith Jones joins the ranks of Julie Doucet and Marc Bell with this new "Petits Livres" book. Keith Jones once wrote, "People and Birds talk to each other and spend time doing it." This is as reasonable a description as you'll get for Keith's dense, cartoon-y people/animal-scapes. Arms twist and flail and behinds slip to the front. Keith comes from a doodle world tradition that belongs to underground giants like the aforementioned Marc Bell and Ron Rege, Jr. Another installment in Drawn & Quarterly's Petits Livres series tiny affordable art books with a comics bent.
