We have a special treat for you today: A complete Hello Kitty short story, “The Egg,” from Hello Kitty: Surprise, which will be out on April 1. This is the third Hello Kitty book from Viz’s Perfect Square imprint. All three books feature a collection of short stories from different creators (this one is by Jorge Monlongo, who also contributed to their Mameshiba comics), and all the Hello Kitty stories are wordless. Enjoy!
