Grumpy Cat/Garfield #1

It’s the inevitable meeting of the sourpusses! Garfield, the reigning cynical cat of newspapers and TV crosses paths with Grumpy Cat, the internet sensation whose scowl endeared herself to the world. Who’s the most sarcastic? Well, he likes lasagna and not much else…and she doesn’t even like lasagna. Can these two inhabit the same comic book mini-series, let alone the same planet? You’ll find out in a trio of issues written by Mark Evanier and illustrated by Steve Uy. We’d say it’s the cat’s meow but neither of these cats meows.

Most of the time, I’m interested to see what new antics that everyone’s favorite lasagna eating cat is up to next. While I wasn’t disinterested, I wasn’t really all that concerned with the other half of this new crossover...

Jax Teller has always had one dream: to follow the family legacy and join the Sons of Anarchy. But at eighteen, still reeling from his father’s death and just starting out as a prospect, Jax is about to discover just how hard the life of an outlaw can be.

Like a lot of the shows I end up watching, I got into Sons of Anarchy very late in the game. Once I did though, I super power watched it and caught up in no time...
