awyeahAWARD-WINNING CREATORS ART BALTAZAR AND FRANCO BRING YOU THE CROSSOVER EVENT OF A LIFETIME!

Dark Horse and Dynamite Proudly Announce CAPTAIN ACTION CAT: THE TIMESTREAM CATASTROPHE #1, Debuting in April 2014

From the Eisner and Harvey award-winning, New York Times best-selling, famous cartoonists Art Baltazar and Franco comes the crossover epic event of a lifetime! Finally, Captain Action Cat meets Action Cat and the characters from Aw Yeah Comics! Also crossing over with Dark Horse Comics characters such as Ghost, X, Captain Midnight, and the Occultist, this series promises the typical zaniness that the creators of Tiny Titans are known for. True story!

In Captain Action Cat: The Timestream CATastrophe #1, there is something evil out there, and Evil Cat is determined to find it . . . even if it means searching throughout the Silver Age to do it! Could this blip on the screen be the one known as Doctor Evil Cat? What will happen when the Silver Age and the “Aw Yeah Age” collide? What does this mean for the timestream? The fate of the comic world may change forever! Plus, a mysterious frozen souvenir from the Golden Age makes a visit! For the first time ever, The Timestream CATastrophe introduces Captain Action Cat, an anthropomorphic action hero based on the classic action figure/adventure toy, Captain Action!

“All I have to say is: Wow!” says cowriter/artist Art Baltazar. “I am amazed at the comics which we get to create sometimes! Captain Action action figures have been a classic American toy forever, and now that he is back, the world will be a better place! It’s an honor to be working so close to this iconic character . . . even if our version is a cat. Aw Yeah!”

“I feel so lucky to be in this industry and that people are willing to let us play with their toys,” adds cowriter Franco! “This one means quite a bit to me personally because this crossover event features something we created—Action Cat from our own Aw Yeah Comics—which we get to cross over with Captain Action (as a cat) and the heroic crew from Dark Horse. ‘Wow’ is an understatement! Every year, I think we cannot top what we did before . . . and I am proven wrong, as this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever had the privilege to work on! Aw Yeah, Dynamite!”

“Art and Franco have been having a blast with the Itty Bitty Hellboy series. We loved their treatment of Hellboy and I’m particularly eager to see what mayhem they’ll inflict on our superheroes,” says Dark Horse president Mike Richardson. “Ghost and X teamed with Action Cat and Captain Action? Who would have thought?”

“I’ve gotta say, we’ve had some fun, high octane, cataclysmic, unbelievable crossovers through the years,” states Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “But this crossover will be the most fun! What Art and Franco have put together is just incredible! And did I mention fun? Aw Yeah!”

Captain Action Cat: The Timestream CATastrophe #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ February Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and is slated for release on April 16, 2014. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Captain Action Cat with their local comic book retailers. Captain Action Cat will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
