ABLAZE and GRUMPY CAT Team Up for Graphic Novel and Tribute Book Deal
By Staff Reports
ABLAZE announced today that they have signed an agreement with licensor Grumpy Cat Limited. The agreement covers Grumpy Cat comic books, graphic novels and a Grumpy Cat tribute book.
The World’s Grumpiest Cat— and the world’s most adorable internet sensation—continues to delight fans of all ages. With her ever-present pout and sassy disposition, Grumpy Cat has won the hearts of people everywhere. If you love the memes, the videos, and that irresistible scowl, then get ready for the wildly fun antics of Grumpy Cat. Her escapades are guaranteed to make you smile… even if she’s scowling!
The first book to be released under the deal will be the Grumpy Cat Awful-ly Big Comics Collection, collecting every (terrible) Grumpy Cat comic book story ever — in one giant (overhyped) comics collection! The 280-page $19.99 full color trade paperback contains over 25 different stories, plus bonus material, and will be on sale this January.
ABLAZE plans to release a Tribute book to Grumpy Cat in 2021, which will feature artwork, photos, stories and more from fans and professionals alike, paying a fitting tribute to the cat who has become an inspiration for so many.
Also look for a brand-new Grumpy Cat adventure in original graphic novel format in the not-too-distant-future!
Grumpy Cat has helped millions of people smile around the world—even when times were tough. Her spirit will continue to live on through her fans everywhere. And ABLAZE is thrilled to be a part of that.
