In our monthly series, we feature one Dave's amazing comics. Each comic takes place in a different area of Shanghai, the artistic style adjusting itself to mirror the feeling, tone and character of that neighborhood, as well as to celebrate the cultural richness of the city. This month, "Bad Year To Be a Cat" invites you to imagine Chinese Dog Year through the eyes of a cat.
