GRUMPY CAT Inks Comic Book Deal With DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT

POP CULTURE SENSATION TO DEBUT COMIC BOOKS,
COMIC STRIPS, AND GRAPHIC NOVELS THIS YEAR

Dynamite is proud to announce a collaborative licensing partnership
with Grumpy Cat Limited to develop print and digital comic books and
graphic novels featuring “The World’s Grumpiest Cat” and her brother,
Pokey. Grumpy Cat will debut the first of her all-new misadventures in a
three-issue miniseries, released in Fall 2015, and collected into a
hardcover graphic novel in time for the holiday season. Dynamite also
plans to launch a website this summer where new Grumpy Cat comic strips will go up online every week.

 
“With
her ever-present pout and sassy disposition, Grumpy Cat has won the
hearts of people everywhere. I can tell you, we’re thrilled, just
absolutely thrilled, to bring this adorable curmudgeon’s misadventures
to the comic world!” says Keith Davidsen, Marketing Manager of Dynamite
Entertainment. “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. If
you love the memes, the videos, and that irresistable scowl, then get
ready for the wildly fun antics of Grumpy Cat and Pokey in Dynamite’s
all-new, all-sensational Grumpy Cat comics!”

Cat’s global following includes 7.6 million Facebook fans and over 31
