A 2003 graphic novel from Scott Morse, currently a story artist at Pixar. Out of print.
From the publisher:
Southpaw is a robot fighting tiger introduced in the pages of the special robotic anthology Project: Telstar. From those few panels, we learned that Southpaw is one bad cat: He doesn't follow instructions very well, and he can take a robot fighter down in the first round!
Creator Scott Morse plans for Southpaw to be the first of three books that will tell the "tale" of an animal's exploits. Each page has only one panel, so that the reader can focus on the detail of each picture.
