Scott Ramsoomair is the creator of VG Cats, an online comic taking jabs at the video game industry with the help of two lovable cats. Leo the carefree, airhead tabby and the quick-tempered kitty Aeris. The two are based off of the authors own cats in classic Garfield fashion.
Also filling out the cast is the lord of the unpleasant Krug, the card crazy Galka Ternaldo, and the defender of undergarments PantsMan. Proving once and for all, you can look manly wearing underwear on your head.
Leo and Aeris take on the role of the characters in videogames. From there hilarity ensues, usually. From Asteroids to Zanzibar VG Cats has something for every gamer. "Even you retarded chocobo inbreeders," says Ramsoomair. VG Cats can be found at www.vgcats.com
