Chaste’s exact origin is unknown. While she is clearly a Felinoid, she was discovered living alone in the wild jungles of Kaneon-9 by the crew of the FSS-CH13. She eventually was given a special appointment to the Cosmic Hellcats forces by Admiral Otto Solace and now serves as Armsmaster aboard the FSS-CH9. Perhaps the most feared combatant in the Squadron, Chaste has a no-nonsense “shoot first and let Ceiling Cat sort them out” attitude. While on the surface she is distant and mean-spirited towards her fellow shipmates, she is extremely protective of them and considers them her family – the only family she has ever known. Extended Bio
As pilot of the FSS-CH9, Damsel is one of the greatest pilots in the entire Squadron. Born to a wealthy family and living a life of relative luxury and privilege, Damsel found herself drawn to a greater calling. She ran away from home and enrolled in the Academy for Science Soldiers and eventually was made a Cosmic Hellcat. Despite her stong sense of duty and love of adventure, Damsel is still a socialite princess at heart. She is as much intrigued by the promise of adventure that being a Hellcat provides, as she is to the nobility and honor it brings. Extended Bio
Grendel is the son of the most decorated hero in the history of the Confederation. Long neglected and considered a disappointment by his legendary father, Grendel set out to prove himself by becoming a hero in his own right, first with the Meowing Commandos and later with the CH-13. Grendel is the consumate soldier, as serious and hard on his fellow Hellcats as his father was on him. He is currently a Colonel in the Transuniversal Intergalactic Tranquility Squadron and the right hand of Admiral Kitty. Unlike most felinoids, who have the species designation felinoid sapien catus, Grendel is felinoid panthera leo, making him somewhat larger and more imposing than most felinoids.
Of all the crew of the FSS-CH9, Sarah probably wants to be there the least. A brilliant scientist and leading authority on rocket science and physics, her intelligence and technical ability are rivaled only by her libido and hedonistic nature. Born a flower child to hippie parents, she finds herself constantly torn between the worlds of free-love and semi-conductor mechanics. While she is well respected in her field and throughout the Kingdom for her brilliance, her carefree attitude and lack of discretion landed her a court martial and got her “sentenced” to active duty with the Hellcats. While she loves her crewmates, she’d greatly prefer life on firm land to the isolation of deep space. Extended Bio
Tybalt Prince served as a cadet amongst the legendary CH-13 along with Amaya and Chaste. A stickler for the rules, he garnered something of a reputation as a teachers pet and a stick in the mud. These assessments were fair. Tybalt went on to graduate at the top of his class and was quickly promoted through the ranks due to his exemplary service and was eventually given command of his own smartship, the FSS-CH1. Col. Grendel continues to respect Tybalt’s organization, dedication and adherence to policy and as such has allowed him to maintain a crew of rookies, just out of the academy in the hopes that he can turn them into perfect soldiers. The rookies, for their part have lost some respect for Tybalt after seeing the behavior of other crews, most specifically the CH-9.

Last week, Max and I went to WVPopCon 2014. That was nice because we did fewer comic book conventions this year than we normally do. We might have to fix that next year. In any case, wad a great time, and as always got to see a lot of cool costumes. Here’s a selection of them. Enjoy!
It’s been quite a while since Max and I posted convention pictures. Let’s change that! Last weekend, we did a one day show at Pittsburgh Indy Comic Expo, aka PIX! The show specializes in creator owned comics just like Hellcats. Lots of great people out there, some old friends and some new ones. Thanks to everyone who came out. Here are a few pictures from the event.
So you might have noticed that the comic went up early this week. It appeared last night instead of tonight. This was due to some technical difficulties. That is to say, that technically, I forgot what day it was and posted it early and then realized in the morning and then it just seemed silly to pull it down. Oops!
Well, since you’ve already seen the comic, I guess we should have something else for you special today. How about pics from Baltimore Comic Con last weekend?
Max and I both went out and had a blast as always with both the other creators and all the fans. We look forward to the next time. In the meanwhile, here are some great shots of the various cosplayers that came by our table. Enjoy!
Last weekend I went out to WVPop Con 2013 to sell and sign books. It was my first time at this particular con and I had a great time meeting a bunch of new fans. Thank you to everyone who came out and I look forward to seeing you all again next year.
I’ll be selling and signing books at WVPopCon in Morgantown, West Virginia this weekend (August 24th and 25th). If you’re in the area, make sure you come down and say hi to me and all the other great creators that will be there.
