Happy Horror Days! Welcome to this week’s 12 Panel Pitch feature, Neko: The Cat. The title reflects how Japanese horror movie titles are often translated into English (like Ju-on: The Grudge or Chakushin Ari: One Missed Call). Some might notice that Neko: The Cat is heavily influenced by Hausu, A Tale of Two Sisters (a Korean horror movie), and by Catwoman. Everyone should notice Hwei Lin Lim’s stunning illustrations!
