Captain of the FSS-CH9, Amaya Solace is the daughter of a high-ranking admiral from the Felinius Kingdom and the youngest person ever appointed captain of a Felinoid Smartship. Hard-nosed and tough as nails, she constantly struggles to prove herself and her team among the Squadron forces, many of whom assume she received her post through nepotism. Despite the general mistrust of her throughout the squadron, she has a reputation for being a fierce fighter, albeit with a history of insubordination and inability to follow orders. Prior to her commission as captain, she served with the CH-13. Extended Bio
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
Fluffy is the Artificial Intelligence that controls the shipboard computer of the FSS-CH9. Like all felinoid smartships, the neural network that forms his AI is sentient and capable of independent thought, learning and emotion. This design is intended to make the smartship feel a kinship with the team by causing it to consider itself a member of the team. However, while most smartships become attached and protective of their crew, the constant danger that the CH-9 tends to face through the team’s relative inexperience and general recklessness has caused Fluffy to treat them with some amount of disdain. In particular, he is rather antagonistic of Damsel and Sarah, whom (as pilot and engineer) he blames for the majority of his perils, and Andrew, whom he considers to be an inferior artificial intelligence.
An extremely gifted scientist and inventor, Riley is both the most intelligent among the IJA-µ and the only female. Between these two details, she frequently finds herself left out of field missions and delegated to a support role, something she deeply resents. As such, she takes any opportunity she can to become involved in active combat with hostiles. She is very close with Sarah Prankha, whom, despite the fact that the latter frequently corrals her into dangerous situations on “nights out on the town,” she considers her best friend (mostly due to a lack of other options).

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.
Our good friend Chris Flick of Capes & Babes asked for a guest strip to promote his trip to HeroesCon this weekend. I had a cute idea so I tossed one together. For those not reading Capes&Babes, it’s the story of a guy who works at a comic book store in a strip mall and his best friend who happens to be a werewolf. Chris wanted something that tied in to the HeroesCon appearance, and I came up with this. So check it out.
