Comic and Curious Cats (aka "Martin Leman's Comic and Curious Cats") is a children's book with text by Angela Carter and illustrations by Martin Leman. It was first published by Gollancz 1979; in 1989 a poster and postcard books of the illustrations were also released.

It is not an actual story but a poetic alphabet of cats, in which Carter describes each feline's characteristics with the same letters of the alphabet as which begins their own name, these same character traits are illustrated in Leman's pictures.
