When the Yakuza sent the pair into a Mafia ambush, they went independent, only to have their former employers send the assassins Tooth and Nail after them, and later Skull and Crossbones.

After first appearing in their own title for the short lived EFGraphics, Cat and Mouse found a new home, appearing first in Ex-Mutants #14 (preview short story, Eclipse Comics) before regaining their own title at Aircel in March 1990, a series which lasted 18 issues.
