Two of the world’s most famous felines are set to join forces for the first time as part of a new comic book series.
Grumpy Cat and Garfield will star in an original story following a deal with Dynamite Entertainment and BOOM! Studios’ KaBOOM, which will be written by Garfield creator, Jim Davis.
“Teaming up with Garfield for a comic series is a real honour,” said Grumpy Cat. “I hate it.”
Nick Barrucci, CEO and publisher of Dynamite added: “Working with the fine folks at Grumpy Cat has been absolutely wonderful; we’ve had tremendous success bringing Grumpy to our fans, and helped to grow the comics market with record breaking sales through the direct market, book stores, and Scholastic.
Grumpy Cat has been a kind of icon for the depressing era we live in. She is amused by nothing and likes nothing. Her favorite word is “no.” One may think that is a depressing way for any being, four legged or two legged, to live. On the other hand, Grumpy Cat will never be disappointed. If she expects everyone and everything to be terrible and unacceptable, she will constantly get her wish.
Garfield at least has some things that he enjoys, such as baked Italian food and sleeping in at all hours. Anything that does not involve these things is irksome.
Grumpy Cat and Garfield’s comic is set to debut this summer.
