(For those of you who aren't familiar, KAT AND MOUSE follows the adventures of female mercenaries Kat and Mouse as they take on shadow jobs on the mean streets of 2042 Bay City, California Free State, and trade gunfire with biker gangs, corporate commandos, cyborg assassins, and a Japanese crime syndicate.)
