In addition to full-color reproductions of original artwork, the catalog will feature exclusive content including:

*essays by Bill Amend, creator of FoxTrot; Keith Knight, creator of The K Chronicles; Amy Lago, Comics Editor of the Washington Post Writers Group; and Cartoon Art Museum Curator Andrew Farago

*a lengthy interview with Breathed conducted by cartoonist and author Shaenon K. Garrity
