Experience the Robot Kitten Factory saga from the beginning with this deluxe, enlarged version of the first three issues with additional content.

The throwback retro-manga series from artist and producer Mark Bussler brings nonstop action and laughs in this deluxe hardcover edition. An alien space monster attacks Earth and lays waste to the peaceful city of San Philatakio. It easily defeats the military, but can the rampaging creature from outer space withstand the might of the government’s top-secret Robot Kitten Factory?

Meet Captain Laser Whiskers, Kitty Mk II, and Mechapowercat 9001 as General Zarlorr and Professor Xardoz launch powerful robot cats from a secret volcano that fire lasers, shoot lightning bolts, and harness the gravitational forces of black holes. Lasers and missiles fly as seven Robot Kittens (eight, including the secret one) battle monsters on Earth and in deep, uncharted regions of outer space!
