NIGHTSHIFT

In a world of felines, corruption, injustice, murder and crime runs rampant. The safety of the city falls into the hands of the NYPD Special Agents that work the nightshift. 

CREATED by Cindy Ramey

Welcome to the Nightshift comic. This story is about a world full of cat characters. Which focus is mainly on the characters of the good guys of NYPD and the cat burglars of Big Claws gang. With a huge swing into supernatural with the vampire lives of Cage and Travis. Why the vampires you may ask? Lets just say that this whole world has been in my head since 1992 and I have had a lot of inspiration throughout the years. Things that I wish I could had done different with this comic would had been to create a fictional world. They are forever stuck in the late 90's early 2000’s, but I sometimes slip in more modern tech and vehicles at times.
