When you think of the badass ladies that appear in the pages of Dynamite Comics, you probably think of the likes of Vampirella and Red Sonja. Well, while those ladies are indeed formidable females, Dynamite just added yet another iconic woman to their line-up: Grumpy Cat. (Yes ladies and gentlemen, Grumpy Cat is a girl.)
Now, Grumpy Cat is the latest comic to be added to the “pay what you want” bundle of over 85 digital comics, and the first-ever comic to be created exclusively for a Groupees bundle. This all-new, 10-page comic is only available with the purchase of the Women of Dynamite Bundle. And to celebrate this special addition, this bundle will be made available for two more weeks.
In this Halloween-themed Grumpy Cat story, Grumpy and her brother Pokey must use all the cunning—and black mystic arts—at their disposal to survive (spoiler: they survive) the scariest (not really that scary) night (actually just a few hours) in all of Halloween history (involving dour cats). The story is written by Ben Fisher, and features art by Steve Uy.
“We are very excited to be the first outlet to offer an exclusive Grumpy Cat comic,” said Groupees CEO Thomas Brooke in a press release. “Grumpy Cat has fast become an international phenom, and we look forward to watching Dynamite take the furry curmudgeon to comic book heights.” Part of the proceeds for this comic are going to Saved Whiskers Animal Rescue, a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of countless felines by rescuing abused, abandoned and homeless cats, providing veterinary care and shelter until they can be placed into a loving home.
The first tier is unlocked with a $5.00 contribution, while a $10.00 minimum investment offers fans an additional batch of comics. The $5.00 Tier includes 29 comics at an approximately $60.00 value, including The Complete Alice In Wonderland and Lady Zorro. The $10.00 Tier features 55 comics plus The Art of Ramona Fradon, valued at approximately $180.00, as well as Vampirella and Red Sonja. Group bonuses will continue to unlock throughout the promotion, giving fans the chance to earn even more great Dynamite comics, and to enter to win a piece of original art from story artist Steve Uy.
And if this latest bundle isn’t enough for you Grumpy Cat fans out there, if you happen to be in the New Jersey area come late November, the Grumpy Cat creative team will be at the first-ever New Jersey Comic Expo in Edison, NJ November 21 and 22, where Dynamite will have NJCE-exclusive comics for sale.
