Meggie Ramm (they/them) is a nonbinary cartoonist from Michigan. They have a MFA in comics from California College of the Arts, had work in the New Yorker and Silver Sprocket, and created the limerick-based strip Littlest Dungeon Guard for Sunday Haha. They love rhymes, reading queer sci-fi and fantasy, and everything comics.

Batcat is the first in a series of graphic novels for emerging readers about accepting yourself and others.

Batcat loves being all alone in their home on Spooky Island. Up in their tree house, they pass the time playing video games and watching TV. But when Batcat suddenly finds themself haunted by an annoying, ice cream-stealing ghost, they visit the local Island Witch for a spell to remove their ghastly guest permanently.

With their Ghost-B-Gone spell in hand, Batcat travels across Spooky Island to gather ingredients-to the Cavernous Caves where the bats tell them they're too round to be a bat and to the Whispering Cemetery where the cats will help only if they commit to being a true cat. But Batcat is neither, and that's what makes them special . . . right?

A sweet and fun story about accepting yourself when you're perfectly in between here and there, Batcat is sure to charm graphic novel readers of all ages with its pure and undeniable Batcattitude!
