The Smile of the Absent Cat
The story is about about Louis Wain, an Edwardian artist known for being the first to do “cat cartoons.” As he died penniless and insane, a state that Morrison assumes all creators strive for, the graphic novel focuses on what happens to the world Wain made (“Catland”) without its creator and how it will reflect the real events in his life. The main character is a detective who recently returned from the first World War.
