Here is my cover for the upcoming Grumpy Cat Garfield #3 from Dynamite Entertainment. I believe this one goes on sale this October so I’d call up your local comic shop and make sure they’re ordering enough copies. This is also a variant cover so you might want to make sure your comic shop is ordering the covers you want. This variant cover game can be a real gamble and if you’ve been reading my posts you know what a pet peeve the passivity of comic book fans has become for me. “I wanted to get it but my comic shop didn’t order it.” Wah! Wah! Wah! I don’t want to hear that anymore. Call your comic shop! TELL them what you want! If they won’t order it, contact another comic shop! There are still a good number of shops open across the country and many of them will do mail order. If you don’t want to deal with the shops, you can order directly from Dynamite’s own site! In this day and age, there’s no good reason for missing out on the books that you want. It may take a little legwork on your part but that’s the way it goes and honestly, with the internet available, “legwork” means sitting in your chair at your laptop! When someone at a convention comes up to me and tells me, “I wanted to get this but I couldn’t find it” what they’re really telling me is, “I wanted this but no one magically put it directly into my hands and let me take it home for free.”
Now my rant aside, if you’ve been following my posts, you already know that I’ve done variant covers all along for the Grumpy Cat Garfield mini-series. Here again is my cover for GCG #1:
This issue went on sale THIS very week so get out there and pick it up! Here is my cover for GCG#2:
I have to admit that out of the three covers, my favorite is #3. Its just the gag I’m happiest with. I hope you dig it too and I hope you’ll pick it up. Once again, if you want something, let your comic shop know!
