Dynamite and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products have announced a new addition to the ThunderCats mythos in issue #2–Calica!


The brand-new member joins the core cast in the Declan Shalvey and Drew Moss series. Fans will get the chance to meet Calica early in the second issue, which hits stores on March 13. Colors are by Arancia Studio, letters are by Jeff Eckleberry, and edits are 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.

Dynamite shares that Calica is “a potential love interest for a Lion-O” who is “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 ThunderCats characters, having the opportunity to contribute to the lore has been a wonderful experience,” said 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.”

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, the publisher will be unveiling a surprise second cover for the issue by Shalvey. As the “Final Order Cutoff” approaches for the issue, Dynamite will be sharing further information.

ThunderCats #2 will be in stores on March 13. Check out some covers here!
