The third and final comic prequel ahead of Honor Harrington’s return to comics is here — but this week, it’s all about Honor’s faithful companion, Nimitz the Treecat. io9 is proud to present the finale of Facets of Honor, The Deep Woods!

Set between Honor’s recent return to comics in the Free Comic Book Day release Tales of Honor and the upcoming second run of comics from Top Cow and Image, so far each story in Facets of Honor looks into different events and aspects in Honor’s past, and how they’ve come to shape her into the captain she is today. This time, however, Honor’s beloved treecat Nimitz takes the spotlight as he meets his lunch — but also meets his match.


Without further ado, here’s the final prequel, The Deep Woods, written by Kate Leth (Bravest Warriors, Edward Scissorhands), with art by Irene Koh (Batgirl).
