  It's the inevitable meeting of the sourpusses! Garfield, the reigning  cynical cat of newspapers and TV crosses paths with Grumpy Cat, the internet sensation whose scowl endeared herself to the world.  Who's the most sarcastic?  Well, he likes lasagna and not much else... and she doesn't even like lasagna.  Can these two inhabit the same comic book mini-series, let alone the same planet?  You'll find out in a trio of issues written by Mark Evanier and illustrated by Steve Uy.  We'd say it's the cat's meow but neither of these cats meows.

    I am of course very eager to see how this story will unfold and if Garfield and Grumpy Cat will eventually come to like one another (although that seems very unlikely at this point in time). If you are a cat lover, Garfield lover, Grumpy Cat lover or even a mere lasagna lover, I would suggest you pick up a copy of this great start of a wonderful story featuring two of the most well known felines in the world!

    This is a great comic for the life long Garfield fans, and also for those just looking for a fun, quick read. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Aug 1, 2017

    Overall this comic delivers just about exactly what it promises, so in that, it is a success. The main take away from this Issue is that Grumpy Cat and Garfield apparently live in the same universe, on the same earth and relatively close to each other. That makes the differing visuals and colors all that more striking and odd. Shouldn't they look somewhat the same or at least be from alternate Earths or realities. I am probably thinking way too much into a Grumpy Cat Garfield comic if you like either one of these cats you will find this somewhat entertaining. Read Full Review

    I love Garfield just as much as the next guy and I never complain when I can read another comic of his. Grumpy Cat, admittedly, is of little to no interest for me even as cute as her real inspiration is. I get that the pairing of them works, I just don't know that it was something I'd ever have wanted. It could produce an amusing enough story by the end but I'm personally not super eager for more. Read Full Review

    More comics of good quality like this should be made for younger audiences because reading is extremely important at a very young age and anything to get kids to do so is a good thing. Read Full Review

    Now the writer they got, Mark Evanier, makes perfect sense. The man has written a lot of funny comics and cartoon shows (he was involved with the show Garfield and Friends) I just wasn't in the mood for funny involving a cat that Reddit made famous. Maybe I am becoming a curmudgeon as I get older. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Aug 2, 2017

    Again, I don't know who the fuck this book is for; nor do I think you should read it. It's one of the worst books I've ever read, I struggled to finish it for this review, and I will likely never think of it again" Until the worst of list at the end of the year. Sadly, I'm not sure it's the worst crossover book I've read this week, but it's definitely terrible and a complete and total cash grab. Once it figures out who's money, it's trying to grab. Don't let it be yours. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Doug Warren Aug 2, 2017

    I’ve got nothing else to say. This book was released to try to make a quick buck off of an established franchise and a waning fad, and quality wasn’t a priority. Read Full Review
