Mark Evanier and Steve Uy Team Up for Grumpy Cat/Garfield from Dynamite and BOOM!
This summer, the world’s foremost finicky felines will come face-to-face in the epic crossover, Grumpy Cat/Garfield, as three-time Emmy Award nominee Mark Evanier steps back into the paws of the most iconic cat in comics for this three-part mini-series worthy of more than just nine lives! Joined by artist Steve Uy, Grumpy Cat/Garfield will pounce its way into stores August 2, 2017!
Thanks to an exclusive partnership between Dynamite Entertainment and BOOM! Studios‘ award-winning imprint, KaBOOM!, Jim Davis’ iconic comic strip cat Garfield will meet internet sensation Grumpy Cat in a limited series with a story inspired and approved by icon Jim Davis, himself!
It’s the inevitable meeting of these two loveable sourpusses! Garfield, the reigning cynical cat of newspapers and TV will cross paths with internet sensation Grumpy Cat, whose memorable scowl endeared herself to the world. Who’s the most sarcastic? Well, he hates Mondays…and she hates any day ending in “y!” Is there enough room to accommodate both truculent tabbies within the pages of the same comic book, let alone the same universe? You’ll find out in this three-issue mini-series that will have you purring that it’s the cat’s meow!
The debut issue of Grumpy Cat/Garfield features a wide selection of exciting cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of options! The cover artwork features the talents of Andy Hirsch, interior artist Steve Uy, Fernando Ruiz, Tony Fleecs, and Phil Murphy. Limited variant editions in “Black & White,” “Virgin Art,” “Coloring Book,” and “Comic Strip” formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.
