Cats have graced the pages of comic books for years in one way or another (think Dex-Starr or Catwoman) and now there’s going to be another one: Grumpy Cat. The cantankerous-looking feline will be joined by her brother Pokey in the comic book miniseries from Dynamite Entertainment, Entertainment Weekly reports. The three-issue series will debut this fall and will be available in hardcover format just in time for the holidays.
While Pokey seems excited by the prospect, Grumpy Cat announced in her famous curmudgeonly style, “I already hate it.” Fans of hers will likely disagree.
“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,” Keith Davidsen, marketing manager of Dynamite Entertainment said in a statement, according to Entertainment Weekly. “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!”
One can only guess what antics Grumpy Cat and Pokey get into, but we’re betting she won’t like any of them.
