Synopsis

Inside the jungles of Vietnam, a courageous Special Ops. Unit is fighting the most infamous war of decades past—the Vietnam War. This bold account follows the brave exploits of Sergeant "Perky" Perkins and his unit...of rabbits! Join Rats, Perky and Botaski as they fight against the cats of the Viet Cong. From the Tet Offensive to the My Canh bombing, watch these commando-style bunnies through an anthropomorphic lens as events unfold and violence erupts.

On-human cast of characters notwithstanding, this compelling and painstakingly-researched work places an emphasis on factualism in order to accurately portray the events of the Vietnam War. With a fresh perspective on one of history's greatest calamities, Apocalypse Meow is a daring new take on a conflict that won't soon be forgotten...especially after these young rabbits are done!

In the same vain as the graphic novel Maus, Cat Shit One aka Apocalypse Meow seeks to tell a pivotal moment in history with anthropomorphism. While Maus dealt with the Holocaust, C.S.1 is basically a well written documentary of the Vietnam War. If it were not for the fact that the characters are humanoid animals it would almost be too realistic and factual to be really be enjoyable, as evidenced by one of the side stories at the end of volume one involving actual humans.

10/10 The art is outstanding with effective use of screen tone and painstaking detail to the background and tools of read more

Recommendations

Manga: El Alamein no Shinden
Despite initial appearances, these are both gritty stories of war with a great deal of truth to them. They rely on absurd humour (anthropomorphized animals in one, strange alternate history and sci-fi scenarios in the other) to make what might be a boring story immensely entertaining, and to explore some interesting angles.

Manga: Wolf's Rain
They both feature animals in some form of war, although Wolf's Rain is more post-apocalyptic/Science Fiction-y and Apocalypse Meow is extremely realistic and factual.
