Time to think about Christmas presents!
On 16.10.2018 Titan Books released a new ilustrated book titled "Jonesy - Nine Lives on the Nostromo" by Rory Lucey. As an Alien fan and cat person I am happy for this release. Thanks to Titan Books for this one and for David’s Drawings (released earlier this year). There are no news about a new Alien film but we get plenty on the side to enjoy.
Check the book description below and decide for yourself. It is already # 1 Best Seller in Cat Care :)
"Aboard the USCSS Nostromo, Jonesy leads a simple life enjoying The Company cat food and chasing space rodents. Until one day, his cryostasis catnap is rudely interrupted. The humans have a new pet and it’s definitely not house-trained.
In space, no one can hear you meow.
This full-colour, illustrated book offers a cat’s eye view of all the action from the movie Alien. With new and original artwork by artist Rory Lucey, this is the perfect gift for all Alien fans (and cat lovers)."
"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"
This would be good for a completist. It generally has positive reviews. From an Amazon member:
I was expecting a children's book, but this is really a graphic novel that both kids and adults can enjoy. It loosely tells the story of "Alien" from Jones/Jonesy the cat's experiences. The book perfectly inserts itself into the plot of the movie and gives a lot of laughs along the way. Jones is adorable, exhibiting classic cat behavior throughout. I expected Jones to somehow figure in to Ripley defeating the alien monster, but he ended up, well, just acting like a cat. I love this book and bought another copy as a Halloween gift for a friend who loves cats.
