Margaret Atwood to Write Superhero Graphic-Novel Series Called 'Angel Catbird'

Margaret Atwood is getting into the superhero genre.

The author of "The Handmaid’s Tale" and "Cat’s Eye" will publish the first installment of her graphic-novel trilogy, "Angel Catbird," in Fall 2016. Aimed at readers of all ages, the series will follow a superhero who’s part-cat and part-bird. 

"Due to some spilled Super-Splicer, our hero got tangled up with both a cat and an owl; hence his fur and feathers, and his identity problems," explained Atwood.

"Angel Catbird" is intended to raise awareness for two Canadian animal charities, Keep Cats Safe and Save Bird Lives. Dark Horse Comics will sell each book of the trilogy for $10.99.
