The Pampas cats of northern Peru are being killed and a team of zoologists have determined that it’s being done by a bird of prey that is not indigenous to the area. Another predator – Ivette Velez, aka the Jaguar – could be the only predator who can stop the murders and save the cats.

The Jaguar one-shot is a quick read, adventure comic with a little magic thrown in for good measure. Writer Keryl Brown Ahmed tells a story about heroes versus villains that is accessible to young readers. The art by Tango and colors by Ellie Wright pop with energy and excitement from the Jaguar’s fight to save the cats to the interior of the cave and bright sunny day.
