We have an exclusive look inside the new Grumpy Cat / Garfield series from Dynamite Entertainment and BOOM! Studios. The three-part mini-series is being written by Mark Evanier (Garfield and Friends) and drawn by artist Steve Uy (Avengers: the Initiative) and will hit stores August 2nd. The series will include a story inspired and approved by Garfield creator Jim Davis.
Summary: 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!
Artist Steve Uy says:
“Garfield was my favorite comic strip growing up in the ’80s. When I was doing the art for Grumpy Cat last year, there was a Halloween special where I decided to dress Grumpy up as Garfield, and her brother Pokey as Heathcliff in a panel. That didn’t make it to print, and ended up being revised to a Star Wars theme instead, so when I found out there was going to be a Grumpy/Garfield crossover, it seemed like fate had stepped in and given me another chance to draw them all together again!”
