The biggest celebrity of all has been announced for New York Comic Con! Grumpy Cat herself will be appearing on Thursday, October 8th, from 1:30pm to 3:00pm at Dynamite Booth #2129. Thisis her first comic con appearance, but Grmpy has been the superstar at every other venue we’ve seen her at, including Toy Fair and BEA…I’m not joking, she drawss bigger lines than any human so get there early.
Today also marks the debut of the first issue of The Misadventures of Grumpy Cat and Pokey #1. Issue #1 features Grumpy and her brother, Pokey, in a series of charming adventures that, according to Grumpy, are terrible. The Grumpy Cat comic launched as a three issue mini series, but it’s going to be an ongoing starting in March. Lets face it. Cats + comics = success.
As with most #1s, Grumpy Cat will have a full complement of variant covers. And here, in a BEAT exclusive is the whole lot of them! They are sure to make you miserable. Enjoy!
