Grumpy Cat And Garfield Announce The Most Irritable Crossover Ever

There are few things in life that bring as much satisfaction as the news that Garfield and Grumpy Cat will be teaming up for a limited comic series.

Think about it: two moody (and, well, grumpy) cats that have become instant sensations, basically from the moment they were conceived. One was born into comics, and the other into memes, but they have been closer together than ever before. Dynamite Entertainment started a graphic novel series for Grumpy Cat titled The Misadventures of Grumpy Cat and Pokey. Combined with the immortal Garfield, they are bound to be unstoppable.

The CEO of Dynamite Entertainment, Nick Barrucci, stated that even getting to meet Garfield creator Jim Davis was “the highlight of his career,” much less getting Grumpy Cat into a comic strip with Garfield. The two most famous cats are bound to get into mischief – and complain a great deal about it. It is currently unknown if Pokey, Grumpy Cat‘s slightly less grumpy brother, will make an appearance in the comic strip.

BOOM! Studios, the publisher of Garfield, expressed similar sentiments. These are the two most famous cats in the world, and even though they came to fame through different means, these cats are so similar it’s not even funny. The obvious step here WOULD be to make a comic about them – it’s too fitting not to do so. Double the feline hatred, double the fun, right? Jim Davis has expressed delight in the crossover, too.

The only thing left to ask is what the felines think of their fateful encounter. Garfield couldn’t be reached for comment, but Grumpy Cat has allowed a human servant to comment for her.

Teaming up with Garfield for a comic series is a real honor,” she says. “I hate it.” Naturally, we think Garfield shares the sentiment.

The Grumpy Cat and Garfield crossover comic will be here in the summer of 2017.
