Die Kitty Die, from former Archie artist/writer Fernando Ruiz and still-there Archie artist/writer Dan Parent, is brilliant. The story and characters parody various well-known characters and companies, and gives a fantastic tongue-in-cheek look at the state of the current comic industry. I enjoyed the first series immensely, and I’m glad Ruiz and Parent have released another go around with Kitty.

The first issue sets up a great new story arc for Kitty, wherein her parent company is now trying to cash her in for a big movie. Everything is going fine until a mysterious being shows up to murder Kitty, and thus a new adventure begins.

I genuinely like Ruiz and Parent as a creative team. Kitty is a likeable character, and they play on her physical attributes as well as her clever nature. And as I said earlier, I sincerely enjoy how they parody so many different comics and cartoons. By far and large they parody Archie and Harvey comics the most, but if you pay attention, you’ll see nods to other comics as well.

I’m genuinely glad Astro Comix picked this series up and is publishing it. If you’re at your local comic shop and see this book on the shelf, pick it up and give it a shot — I guarantee you’ll enjoy it!
