The cat with a really big head - Roman Dirge

This is the tragic story of a cat called Cat and his stupidly enormous over-sized head as he struggles with day-to-day problems like coping with hairballs, trying to eat Chunky Beef Chunk With Beef catfood or dealing with the neighbourhood mouse, Mr. Stinky and his army of annoying mice. Life hasn’t dealt Cat a good hand, but still there’s always the prospect of reincarnation and a better life isn’t there..?  

My thoughts:
Roman Dirge has the best morbid weird funny stories. The artwork is awesome, very morbid and cute.

In this we meet Cat, who has a really big head and maybe he has a big brain then too, or perhaps not. Cat does not have a happy life. Poor cat.

And then there was a story about an autopsy, yup.

Macabre and funny. Totes adorbs.

Conclusion:
Great illustrations and good stories.

Oh and you have to read his Lenore stories, you have to!
