King City

Heh. I saw this tidbit (where else, but the Express) and had to look it up, because it looked so much like an alternate reality Sean (complete with deadly cat weapon). The main character, Joe is a spy/rebel/slacker/cat master (Hee--cat master). Yes, the cat is a weapon. Even so, that's not the weirdest thing about this manga (maybe the Russian, ex-astronaut sasquatch who runs Joe's apartment is). The inhabitants of King City (as according to the editor of the series) are the weird and twisted characters that could have been plucked from a child's dream. Even so the story never sacrifices substance or soul for style.

Check it out at Tokyopop's Website - King City

The Washington Post, Express article about the series is pretty good too. Read it here.
