This summer, the world's foremost finicky felines will come face-to-face in the epic crossover, Grumpy Cat/Garfield, as three-time Emmy Award nominee Mark Evanier (Garfield and Friends) steps back into the paws of the most iconic cat in comics for this three-part mini-series worthy of more than just nine lives! Joined by artist Steve Uy (Avengers: The Initiative), Grumpy Cat/Garfield will pounce its way into stores August 2, 2017!

Thanks to an exclusive partnership between Dynamite Entertainment and BOOM! Studios' award-winning imprint, KaBOOM!, Jim Davis' iconic comic strip cat Garfield will meet internet sensation Grumpy Cat in a limited series with a story inspired and approved by icon Jim Davis, himself!

It's the inevitable meeting of these two loveable sourpusses! Garfield, the reigning cynical cat of newspapers and TV will cross paths with internet sensation Grumpy Cat, whose memorable scowl endeared herself to the world. Who's the most sarcastic? Well, he hates Mondays...and she hates any day ending in "y!" Is there enough room to accommodate both truculent tabbies within the pages of the same comic book, let alone the same universe? You'll find out in this three-issue mini-series that will have you purring that it's the cat's meow!

Artist Steve Uy says, "Garfield was my favorite comic strip growing up in the '80s. When I was doing the art for Grumpy Cat last year, there was a Halloween special where I decided to dress Grumpy up as Garfield, and her brother Pokey as Heathcliff in a panel. That didn't make it to print, and ended up being revised to a Star Wars theme instead, so when I found out there was going to be a Grumpy/Garfield crossover, it seemed like fate had stepped in and given me another chance to draw them all together again!"

Steve Uy is the artist of such Marvel/ DC series as Uncanny X-Men, Avengers Initiative, Legion of Superheroes Animated, JSA Classified, and many more. He is the artist/creator of his very own creator-owned series, Feather and Jova's Harvest, currently available on Comixology, and has most recently released his mobile games Oasis: Path to Redemption and Evil Brown Eggs.

Writer Mark Evanier met the legendary Jack Kirby in 1969, and began working as his assistant only one week after graduating high school, eventually going on to become his official biographer. A writer and historian, Evanier has written over 500 comics for Gold Key, DC, and Marvel Comics, several hundred hours of television (most notably Garfield and Friends and Groo the Wanderer) and is the author of several books including Mad Art. He has received three Emmy Award nominations, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award for animation from the Writers Guild of America.

"When we first began toying with the idea of a crossover between Grumpy Cat and Garfield, the entire team thought there could not be a more perfect fit," says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment. "As the idea grew, so did our excitement. When we reached out to our dear friends at BOOM! we were delighted to find they were as excited by the idea as we were. Once we received the blessing of Grumpy Limited, Jim Davis and his team at PAWS, we knew this would be a successful project thanks to the passion of everyone involved!"

"We've been honored to publish the adventures of Garfield for many years now and are excited to be partnering with our friends at Dynamite Entertainment to bring Jim Davis' creation together with another heavyweight of the cat world - Grumpy Cat," says Filip Sablik, President of Publishing and Marketing for BOOM! "Mark Evanier is crafting a hilarious, fun-filled story that's sure to please fans of both of these feline franchises."

Grumpy Cat found her adopted home with Dynamite in 2015 with her comic book debut, The Misadventures of Grumpy Cat. Selling more than a half million copies and winning the hearts of readers of all ages, the ever-griping Grumpy has become one of the world's most recognized felines. Now, her infectious charm and witty quips come face-to-face with the original cartoon cat, Garfield!

The debut issue of Grumpy Cat/Garfield features a wide selection of exciting cover variants, providing fans and retailers with the freedom of options! The cover artwork features the talents of Andy Hirsch (Garfield, Adventure Time, Regular Show), interior artist Steve Uy, Fernando Ruiz (Animal Jam), Tony Fleecs (Postcards: True Stories That Never Happened), and Phil Murphy (Regular Show), respectively. Limited variant editions in "Black & White," "Virgin Art," "Coloring Book," and "Comic Strip" formats are also available as retailer incentives for comic shops that support the launch issue by achieving stocking thresholds.

Grumpy Cat/Garfield #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' June 2017 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in August. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Grumpy Cat/Garfield #1 with their local comic book retailers. Grumpy Cat/Garfield #1 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, Madefire, and Dark Horse Digital.

You can’t keep a bad woman down, and none are badder than Giulietta Romero, the professional assassin that was introduced in the recent Jennifer Blood series. Now writer Fred Van Lente is taking his bombshell bandage-masked hitwoman antagonist into her own story inspired by none other than William “The Bard” Shakespeare. Jennifer Blood Presents: Giulietta Romeo: Hitwoman is a pulse-pounding special starring the breakout character that fans have been clamoring to see more from.

Van Lente will be joined on the special spotlight by talented illustrator Robert Carey, acclaimed for his work on James Bond and other titles. A trio of show-stopping covers by Lesley “Leirix” Li, Drew Moss and Valentina Pinti will complete the package for this winter release to keep fans warm with blistering action and noir intrigue!

Slamming her way out of the pages of the recent Jennifer Blood: Bloodlines series, Italian assassin Giulietta Romeo stars in La Tempesta, a noirish reimagining of the William Shakespeare play The Tempest. Giulietta is being extradited to Italy after the events of the Bountiful storyline when her plane is shot down over a remote island in the Atlantic, a former Nazi stronghold that is now the tiny kingdom of a man named Prospero, a former duke of the Naples mobs. His brother, the man who usurped his position, was being extradited on that same plane, and Giulietta finds herself in the middle of a gory blood feud and fighting for her life against Prospero's monstrous servants, Caliban and Ariel.

"I think all readers will really love the Hot New Crime Writer of 2022, William "Bloody Billy" Shakespeare,” said Van Lente. “I'm just the vessel that is bringing the island mob ...

Ahead of Comic-Con International, Dynamite is announcing a new publishing partnership with Immortal Studios, to bring the Los Angeles-based publisher’s shared universe of Wuxia martial arts-fantasy comic books to the broader marketplace. Through the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform, the Los Angeles-based publisher Immortal Studios has to date successfully funded three comic book series as part of a larger shared universe. Now Dynamite is set to bring these action packed titles to the direct market comic stores, digital vendors, bookstores, and beyond in multiple formats, with more releases and titles to come.

Immortal Studios’ Storyverse is spearheaded by the company’s Founder and CEO Peter Shiao, who is collaborating with a team of comic book storytellers to bring a modern sensibility to the Wuxia genre that has influenced contemporary pop culture, including Marvel's Shang-Chi, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Matrix, and Star Wars, as well as countless anime and manga like Naruto. Wuxia, pronounced "woo-sha," is a long running genre born from China that depicts the adventures and trials of martial arts heroes, often but not always in historical settings and with fantasy elements. The Immortal Studios’ Storyverse is inspired by the storytelling of one of the foremost authors in the Wuxia genre, Peter Shiao’s father Shiao Yi, whose novels have been adapted into film and television more than thirty times, including films by the Shaw Brothers and Golden Harvest.

"I am very excited that with this new partnership with Dynamite, one of the preeminent comic publishers, Immortal has dramatically increased our reach and visibility to fandom," said Shiao. "This is a very important step in our goal to build a multi-pronged distribution footprint to reach different market segments that are important for us.

These clients sought the counsel of one man—my father. All I can say is, you better buckle up for the ride."
