Michael D Hamersky On Comics Presents Vinnie's Take On... 
Scratch 9
The Limited Series - Issues #1-4


TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3815 -    I am guest-blogging a review of "Scratch9," a comic created and written by Rob M. Worley and illustrated by Jason T. Kruse. It is a four part limited series about a cat named Scratch, and the mystical spirits of his other lives that he can summon.

Scratch is originally seen escaping from his owner, Penelope, when he is picked up by a man who is working for another man who needs a cat for developing his scientific studies of elongating humans lifetimes, by taking advantage of a cat's 9 lives.

The art is very well done, and promotes the "friendly" nature of this story for younger readers. It's very cartoony, considering the story is supposed to be goofy. Sound effects like "crash" or "boom" are displayed in a bold font for dramaticization, and it ties up the artwork nicely.

The story was well written, having an exciting plot and interesting character design. However, I think some of the characters could have been developed more through the story. The 9 lives of Scratch had a "screen time" of only a couple panels each, which didn't really allow for their history to be discovered. The storyline, I felt, was a little to quick. Some events were rushed, and I think the author could have expanded on them, including more details, or have done some other things to prolong the story.  However, it did take four issues to complete this storyline.

In conclusion, I found the "Scratch9" limited series to be a fun read. It's a great comic to pick up for a child, or for yourself, if you wanted to read a funny, light story. The story was great, but it could have been "expanded" a little. The artwork was beautiful, and was a great pair for the light-hearted story.

I give it a Very Fine / Near Mint (VF/NM), a 9.0 out of 10.0 grade scale. I'd recommend purchasing it if you get the opportunity. If you can't find it at your local comic book shop (LCBS), you can visit the creator's website for more information at: Scratch9.com.

There is also a Facebook Fan Page for Scratch9.
