It has been announced that an exclusive partnership between Dynamite Entertainment and BOOM! Studios’ award-winning imprint KaBOOM! will bring Jim Davis‘ iconic comic strip cat Garfield together with internet sensation Grumpy Cat in a limited series, with a story written by Mark Evanier.
Speaking about the series, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Nick Barrucci said, “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!”
Ross Richie, Founder and CEO of BOOM! Studios added “Jim Davis approached us years ago asking us to publish the Garfield comic books and it’s been a tremendous honor to work with one of the greatest cartoonists of all time and the entire team at PAWS. When I met with him 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. His enthusiasm and affection for this crossover is infectious! This is going to be terrific fun!
Keen to have the final word, Grumpy Cat herself said “Teaming up with Garfield for a comic series is a real honor.”
“I hate it.”
