Keenspot Goes Feline
By Brian Jacks
Keenspot Entertainment and cartoonists Jamie Robertson and Clint Hollingsworth have reached an agreement to present the popular “Clan of the Cats” character, Melpomene in her own comic series.
Melpomene, (http://clanofthecats.com/Melpomene), will be a weekly serial with a specific story arch. When completed “Mel” will be compiled into graphic novel form. The first story arch, “The Chaos Orb”, will be written by “Clan of the Cats” author, Jamie Robertson and illustrated by Clint Hollingsworth, author of the futuristic serial “Wandering Ones." The series, launched on December 15th, 2002, is just one of many PREMIUM Exclusive projects from Keenspot.
A free preview of “Melpomene: The Chaos Orb”, can be found at http://clanofthecats.com/Melpomene/PREVIEW1.htm
“Melpomene will be much more adventure oriented than COTC,” said Robertson, “Think - James Bond meets Dracula - and that’s pretty much the feel of the series.” Clan of the Cats fans will especially be interested as it reveals much more of the mythology of the COTC world. Corrine Elizabeth Melpomene Chattan or “Mel” for short was first introduced to COTC readers in April of 2000 during the appropriately titled story arch, “Melpomene."
