Star Trek #41 Behemoth part 1

February 6th, 2015 by admin

Star Trek #41 came out this week and it is part one of a two part story arc I worked on with IDW and writer Mike Johnson. You can read more about Mike and his take on the Star Trek universe in this interview from Comic Book Resources. This is not my first time working on the new frontier, but it was still a pleasant challenge all the same. Mike had a fun and fantastic story that I got to work on, including designing aliens and star ships. Below is the character design for The Hunter and his ship The Scarab. In addition I got to design the alien planet, which was a blast.  click on the images for a better view

Here are a few of the interiors pages. Pencils and inks by yours truly.  I hope Star trek fans enjoy the arc as much as I did working on it. click on the images for a better view

Season’s Greetings everyone!

Go Team Smallville!!

October 14th, 2014 by admin

As you all know by now, Smallville Season 11 is coming to an end. Right now there are five weeks left digitally and five print issues still to come.  As I hit upload for the last time last month, I would be lying if I said I didn’t get something in my eye at that exact moment. I have been working on this project for almost three years now and it has been an absolute dream come true. I am going to miss it terribly and I am well aware what a rare opportunity I have had to see it all the way through, what will be, 40 issues.

So let me first thank all of you for reading! It has been an absolute pleasure to draw these characters for you. You have been an incredible group of fans and your loyalty to these stories and characters for what will be 125 weeks, has meant so much. I never in a million years thought I would be able to say a book I worked on was a New York Times best seller! You guys did that! As Bryan says, you are all Champions!

I must thank the incredible talent behind the scenes Jim Lee; Geoff, Johns; Dan Didio; Hank Kanalz; Mark Chiarello; Jim Chadwick; Sarah, Gaydos; Ben Abernathy; Kwanza Johnson; Kristy Quinn; Jessica Chen; Brandy Phillips. Thank you for believing in my work and  for the opportunity to  work on such an incredible project! I am forever grateful.

To all the artists  who contributed to this series! You made this book a visual feast for the eyes! I have enjoyed seeing your interpretations and getting to meet a lot of you on the con circuit. I will be following you and your art on whatever your next project turns out to be. I am a fan!

Last but defiantly not least, I want to thank Bryan Q. Miller. It has been a joy to work with him on this project. His love of these characters and this property just transcends. He continued to bring them to life each week, and I , like all of you, was waiting until Friday morning for the next exciting chapter. And, like all of you I have laughed, cried, and gasped my way through his incredible adventures.

He has also made 7 year old Cat’s dreams come true by giving me the opportunity to officially draw all of my favorite heroes as well as design super suits! (holy tights and capes, Batman! I got to design super suits!) OH and make the Wonder Twins pretty cool! (a purple T-Rex!) And thank you for the chance to draw a Lois Lane story with the best Lois out there! Bryan is a masterful story teller and we are so lucky to get to play in the worlds he creates! It has been an absolute honor.

So here we are near the end of a super series! We blew past no flights, no tights right into a league of superheroes!

A little treat on the way out the door…Here is the last of my covers for Smallville Season 11!(minus the SPOILERS)
How is that for coming full circle?!

I’ll leave you with this…here are all 40 covers I contributed to the Smallville universe!(click to make it larger)

Well…I think that is it. I must go attend to this leaky eye situation so I can get back to drawing! Again, Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for staying with Smallville!

Sensation Comics Wall Street Journal Interview

August 27th, 2014 by admin

Gal Gadot and ‘Girl Stuff’: A Q&A With the Duo Behind the New Wonder Woman Story

An online exclusive image from Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman. Art by Cat Staggs.
DC Comics

There is no better four-color icon than Wonder Woman to lead the way into a new era of inclusiveness as comic books and superheroes seize an ever-greater share of the pop imagination.

Long considered one of DC Comics’ “holy trinity” of heroes, along with Superman andBatman, Diana of Themyscira’s mass-media cachet has faded somewhat in recent decades, particularly as her male cohorts have scored big hits at the box office. But, with Wonder Woman finally — FINALLY — set to make her big-screen debut in 2016′s“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” it’s once again the Amazon warrior’s moment to shine.

The resurgence includes a digital-first run of DC’s Sensation Comics — a title that hearkens back to Wonder Woman’s first appearances in the 1940s — featuring stories by different artists and writers outside of the publisher’s current“New 52″ continuity. Cat Staggs andAmanda Deibert, an artist-writer duo married for nearly three years, took on the third story in the anthology, which will be released digitally Thursday on DC’s app, Amazon’s Kindle store, comiXology and Apple’s iBooks, among other outlets. (This article features online exclusive images of Staggs’s art. Their story ran in the print edition of Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman No. 1.)

RED SONJA #16
Coves: Jenny Frison, Cat Staggs, Stephanie Buscema Writer: Gail Simone Art: Walter Geovani

MARKETING DESCRIPTION: From the acclaimed creative team of Gail Simone and Walter Geovanni, the final chapter in the epic “Forgiving of Monsters” saga finds the She-Devil with a Sword besieged from every side.  A parasitic infestation, an intensely personal grudge, an imperiled Astronomer, and an entire kingdom on the verge of homicidal fury have all led to a showdown so bloody and explosive, it surely lives up to — or even exceeds — the Red Sonja series’ reputation of swords-and-sorcery excellence!
