Grumpy Cat is getting a comic book series
Grumpy Cat is getting a comic book (!). Along with her brother, Pokey, the world’s grumpiest cat will make her comic debut in a three-issue miniseries, Dynamite Entertainment announced Wednesday.
The series is slated for Fall and by the look of the cover, Grumpy Cat appears predictably unfazed by the development. The collection will be put into a hardcover copy, due out closer to the holidays.
“One of the most important responsibilities for today’s comic publishers is creating content that will attract fresh new audiences to experience the wonders of the medium, and Grumpy Cat is the perfect combination of unbearable cuteness, instant fan appeal, and established multimedia presence to make just such a thing happen,” said Keith Davidsen, marketing manager of Dynamite Entertainment in a statement. “If you love the memes, the videos, and that irresistible scowl, then get ready for the wildly fun antics of Grumpy Cat and Pokey in Dynamite’s all-new, all-sensational Grumpy Cat comics!”
Grumpy Cat already has two New York Times‘ bestselling novels and a Lifetime movie—Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, starring the voice of Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza—under her belt.
