Grumpy Cat is one of those things that, well, you either get or you don’t.
Don’t answer that — just consider that Grumpy Cat isn’t just an Interwebs force. Grumpy Cat sells comic books, too.
According to ICv2, the first hardcover compilation of Dynamite Entertainment‘s series has pre-sold more than 100,000 copies before its arrival in late February.
For comparison’s sake, in October there were only 14 standard books estimated to have cracked the six-figure plateau — all of the Marvel and DC super hero or Star Wars variety. Meanwhile this hardcover collection has a much higher ($12.99) price point than standard books. On the secondary market, some rarer variant covers have sold well, too.
Buzz won’t try to explain it. Instead, we’ll just offer a gallery of some past issues and alternative covers.
