'Grumpy Cat: Grumpus' is another graphic novel collection of stories starring Grumpy and Pokey. Grumpy is surly, and Pokey is energetic and imaginative. Grumpy is not thrilled by this.
There are nine short stories in this volume with a variety of story-lines. Grumpy and Pokey play hide and seek and Grumpy finds a completely different annoying kitten. The circus comes to town and Grumpy is mistaken for one of the attractions in the sideshow. The title story is the story of how one of Santa's helpers became, well, Grumpus. There are encounters with witches and magic lamps. Humans disappear, and humans create killer robots.
The art styles vary by story, but they are all pretty good. The writing also varies, but it fits more seamlessly than the art. These are fun stories and young readers would probably get some decent laughs out of this collection. A bonus section at the end has a cover gallery. I like reading these Grumpy Cat stories and look forward to reading more.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Dynamite Entertainment, Diamond Book Distributors, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
