Two of the world’s most famous felines are set to join forces for the first time as part of a new comic book series.

Grumpy Cat and Garfield will star in an original story following a deal with Dynamite Entertainment and BOOM! Studios' KaBOOM, which will be written by Garfield creator, Jim Davis.

"Teaming up with Garfield for a comic series is a real honour," said Grumpy Cat. "I hate it."

Nick Barrucci, CEO and publisher of Dynamite added: "Working with the fine folks at Grumpy Cat has been absolutely wonderful; we've had tremendous success bringing Grumpy to our fans, and helped to grow the comics market with record breaking sales through the direct market, book stores, and Scholastic.

“These are the two most famous felines in the world. I can't wait to see what trouble these two get into."

The new series is set to launch during summer 2017.
