The Cat’s Coming, by Chihoi

The new Words Without Borders issue is dedicated to comics, including The Cat’s Coming, comic artist Chihoi’s adaptation of a short story by Xi Xi. Although he’s right-handed, he drew it with his left hand.

Visit Words Without Borders for an extended excerpt of the comic (click on Lightbox View in the right margin to see the pages). They’ve also posted the story that the comic is based on. Both are translated by Steve Bradbury.

The issue includes lots of other interesting, and in some cases disturbing, translated comics. Very cool.
