MOAR Grumpy Cat. This little kitty isn’t letting Deadpool get all the 12 Days of Christmas fun, but is appearing in her own series of comic strips at Nerdist. Because nothing says Christmas like an angry feline. The strips were produced by Dynamite Comics.
Can people get enough of Grumpy Cat? I don’t think so. ICv2 recently reported that the first collection of the Dynamite comic featuring the cranky kitty has been sold in to Scholastic book fairs, and already has orders of more than 100,000 copies via various channels. The first four issue series has been a hit, […]

Although the comics industry seems to be hitting a rough patch, one thing that I noticed at last week retailer summit is that a bunch of people have just been hired as staffers to actually work in the comics business! And interestingly, many of them are working directly with comics retailers. I think if you’re going to invest money in your business at a time like this, investing in new employees who work directly with the people who buy your products is a pretty smart move. Here’s the new faces:
Apparently the title Seduction of the Innocent is in the public domain now, as various projects are in the works from Darl horse and Kitchen sink…but here’s the Dynamite version. And no, it’s not about about a troubled psychiatrist and a rogue senator teaming up to put hundreds of people out of work. Instead the series, by writer Ande Parks and artist Esteve Polls (The Death of Zorro and The Lone Ranger), will be a gritty crime drama with EC-like flourishes.
Lord of the Bundle, Dynamite, has a new one at Groupees, this one themed “Swords, Sandals and Sorcery!” and for a pay what you want model as low as $1 you’ll get a vast amount of reading material featuring people who wear loincloths, including but not limited to: Thunda, Athena, Dejah Thoris and […]
