This issue we follow some more of the secondary characters one of which is a large furry feline named Mittens, who is a gruff behemoth of a cat, with a terrible CATtitude! He is sent by the titular character to do the absolute worst job on the ship! I’m not going to spoil what job that is, but if you ever owned a cat or multiple cats before, you know what that job is. they also deal with a bit of an overpopulation problem on the ship which I thought was biting commentary on some real-world problems. It is very apropos to what would really happen on a spaceship filled with both evolved sentient cats and ferrell cats, as there are both on the ship. Dealing with these problems would not be easy one character even suggests throwing kittens out into open space, which seems a bit harsh. My favorite character is a cat named Science Cat he is a hairless cat, who is basically (as his name suggests) the ships scientist and smartest confidant to the captain.  He also has a bad habit of vomiting quite frequently, which I fear may devastatingly come into play in future issues, but this is purely speculation.

I really enjoyed the first Captain Ginger installment, I only had a few small, nitpicky problems here and there. Though issue two, all of that went to the wayside and was just fun and hilarious romp throughout the entire book. All the members of the creative team on this book are on point. I love Moores writing in this issue a lot better than in the first issue and I am intrigued to see where he takes it. The art is top notch as well, I really enjoy Brigman’s style and what the other creators add to it. If you enjoy fun sci-fi stories with some comedy sprinkled in, definitely pick this issue up!
