Calica, A New ThunderCats Character, Debuts In Issue #2

Thundercats Calica

Dynamite and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer products announced a huge new addition to the ThunderCats mythos, with the introduction of a brand new character in issue #2!

A brand-new member is being added to the core cast by the creative team of Declan Shalvey and Drew Moss. Fans will get the chance to meet Calica early into the second issue, which arrives in stores March 13. A potential love interest for a Lion-O trying to mature and establish himself as a worthy leader, Calica’s story could go any number of ways in the forthcoming chapters and story arcs…

“Not only has it been great to play with the classic ThunderCatscharacters, having the opportunity to contribute to the lore has been a wonderful experience,” said writer Declan Shalvey. “Especially with introducing Calica (and her unique, yet naturally fitting design courtesy of Drew Moss) who will add a new dynamic that will keep the ThunderCats (and readers) on their toes.”

As her name may imply, this new young Thunderian is inspired by the appearance of Calico cats, with a tri-color fur pattern and a distinctive black patch around one of her eyes. She’s found among the wreckage of a Mu’Tant ship. More of her backstory will be revealed in the issue and beyond for readers.

Alongside the character’s first appearance, Dynamite will be unveiling a surprise second cover for the issue by series writer and superstar artist Declan Shalvey. As the “Final Order Cutoff” approaches for the issue, Dynamite will be sharing further information.

ThunderCats #2 will be in stores March 13. It is written by Declan Shalvey, drawn by Drew Moss, colored by Arancia Studio, lettered by Jeff Eckleberry, and edited by Nate Cosby. In addition to the newly announced covers by Shalvey, Moss, and Ken Haeser, the issue features variant covers by David Nakayama, Lucio Parrillo, Jae Lee, Ivan Tao, and an action figure cover.
