ALL-AGES GRAPHIC NOVEL GEAR CELEBRATES A MILESTONE WITH A NEW PRINTING
Four incompetent cats hijack a giant killer robot to change the course of a war between cats, dogs, and insects. But while these three species fight for control of the world, a powerful mechanical being named GEAR arrives to risk his own life to save the lives of good cats.
“GEAR was the first graphic novel I ever made, and it’s why I fell in love with the medium,” said TenNapel. “Now with 17 graphic novels under my belt, I’ve yet to capture the raw energy of GEAR in another title. I was on fire back then, and GEAR is still on fire!”
“GEAR was the first of Doug’s comic books I read, back when it was published in black and white,” said Garner. “I became a fan of his comic books because of it and never expected to be coloring them in.”
This 20th anniversary edition has it all: an action-packed story with robots, harpoon guns, talking cats, mantis kung fu—plus pin-up art by Rob Schrab and Mike Mignola!

“GEAR is pure energy and imagination on paper. I spent a lot of time reading this book over and over trying to soak up all the inky goodness Doug put in.” —Skottie Young (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Deadpool)
“TenNapel is a master of his craft, and his love of the medium is on full display here. Doug plays with the comic page like a cat with so much yarn. GEAR is sheer delight.” —Rob Guillory (CHEW, FARMHAND)
