Batman and Superman. Captain America and Iron Man. Grumpy Cat and Garfield.
In an age of high-profile comic book character crossovers, history can now add a slightly more adorable pair to the list. That's right, Internet sensation Grumpy Cat will star in a comic alongside the OG grumpy cat, Garfield. The epic meeting of the enthusiasm-challenged felines, courtesy of BOOM! Studios' KaBOOM! imprint and Dynamite Entertainment was announced today in a press release by Dynamite. Look below at the cover, and revel in the duo's respective grumpiness and apathy.
"Teaming up with Garfield for a comic series is a real honor," Grumpy Cat "said" in a statement. "I hate it."
The story will be written by Garfield's creator, Jim Davis. "When I met with [Davis] at San Diego Comic-Con International this year to discuss this crossover, he was brimming with delight at the idea of these two felines getting together," founder and CEO of BOOM! Studios Ross Richie said. "His enthusiasm and affection for this crossover is infectious! This is going to be terrific fun!"
CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Nick Barrucci added, "Working with the fine folks at Grumpy Cat has been absolutely wonderful...Meeting Mr. Davis has been a highlight of my career and working with him and our friends Ross, Filip, and everyone at BOOM! Studios to bring her into the world of Jim Davis' beloved comic strip is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. These are the two most famous felines in the world. I can't wait to see what trouble these two get into!"
