What people are saying about the voyages and adventures of Captain Ginger:
— SYFY WIRE
“A crazy fun concept.”
― GRAPHIC POLICY
— THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“The best books usually transport me into a world with which I am largely unfamiliar and reveal its mysteries to me, whether it’s the mean streets of a great urban metroplex, a small village lying somewhere on a distant steppe in central Asia, or a starship full of individualist cats trying to keep it together long enough to survive…these may very well be the characters that June was born to draw and Stuart was born to write!”
― Walter Simonson, from his Introduction to CAPTAIN GINGER Vol 1.
“The fun of this series is just how absurd it is. And with the world being a dumpster fire these days, I’ll take all the absurdity I can get.”
― PORTLAND OREGONIAN
“A fantastic wild ride of space exploration, cat drama, and galactic size imagination.”
— EVERYTHING ACTION
“This comic book is INSANE, in the best possible way when one describes something as “insane” ! I can’t say I got too excited when I first heard the concept, ‘Cats in Space’, but Stuart Moore and June Brigman have got it goin’ on! CAPTAIN GINGER rocks! It’s solid sci-fi adventure, beautifully illustrated and electric with wonderful diverse characters, who are CATS (?!)! This ‘puppy’ smells like a sleeper hit (but that could just be the space kitty litter)!”
― Mike Allred
“So wonderfully trippy and science fiction-y it reminds readers what it is about sci-fi that they love. This is the comic to introduce your friend that hasn’t read comics for a while. If they like cats, even better…. a fantastic choice for those looking for something fresh in the comics industry. It could even bring a few lapsed readers back to comics with its uniqueness. There is nothing out there quite like Captain Ginger.”
— AiPT COMICS!
“Full of mystery.”
— GOOD MEN PROJECT
“Everything a cat-loving sci-fi fan would love.”
— EVERYTHING ACTION
“The Captain and his misbegotten cat crew can count me along for the long haul!”
― Peter Gross
“It’s a sci-fi story first, make no mistakes, but with so many strong characters onboard, I look forward to the catfights, comedy and – wait for it – catastrophes to come too.”
“Entertaining…This intergalactic feline space story is both action-packed and full of humor.”
— ALBANY TIMES UNION
“A fun and adventurous frolic. You had me at evolved cats in space. Nuff said!”
— IMPULSE GAMER
