And I think it's time to launch a new Black Cat. With this issue we already finish the second season of this amazing magazine.

Looking forward to hearing the next 5 stories :9:

And, as always for the Black Cat, please restrict yourself to one section per reader, so we have the maximum of voices in this project.

It's a go !

and here's to an unbroken streak for two full seasons :thumbs: Thank you for staying faithful to the Black Cat, Julie. Now I wonder whether Tom Satan is a black cat, would be a fitting name...

I'll PL your other section tomorrow, it's getting late here tonight.
