I am a huge fan of Grumpy Cat. She looks so miserable that it’s utterly adorable. So when I saw this comic available on Netgalley, I couldn’t resist requesting it.
This was a fun little comic filled with several of Grumpy Cat and Pokey’s misadventures. As I was reading it, I couldn’t help but smile at how similar it is to the classic Garfield comics that I use to enjoy as a child. In this series, Grumpy Cat has a brother named Pokey, who is a bit… dim, but super enthusiastic and lovable. Most of the time Grumpy Cat is just going along for the ride. She’s amused by how gullible Pokey is and will even go as far to set up Pokey or Dog (their household dog) up to get in trouble. Sounds familiar, right?
Still, I would love to see this as an animated series. I think my son would love it and other children his age or younger could really experience the same kind of enjoyment we had with Garfield. After all, no matter how grumpy she may seem, Grumpy Cat is still lovable and sometimes you need someone who isn’t super happy all the time, to really make a show/comic/book enjoyable. She’s an icon that could live on through the ages and I look forward to being able to share this with my son and hopefully you can share it with your children or just enjoy it for yourself.
Reviewer’s note: I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
