COMICS Miles the Cat


We've all been there with you, Miles!

Ladies and gentleman, this was Miles The Cat by Shannon Ell
I would like to say a huge thank you to Shannon and their creativity! Miles not only brightened up my weeks, but it was also a pleasure to work with his creator. Shannon is a super star who can take directions and is eager to work. I wish you the very best!

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
