Our daily round-up of news around the comics space, from the gutters and beyond.

Grumpy will work with Dynamite Entertainment to bring her famous scowl to the pages of comic books, graphic novels and comic strips. And this isn’t her first foray into the world of literature, either; she’s already the “author” of two New York Times bestsellers.

A Grumpy Cat comic is probably not the new title we need, but it might just be the new title we deserve.

One of my best friends is the thriller writer Chelsea Cain, and Chelsea had kind of set me up on a blind date with Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue [DeConnick] and Brian Bendis and his wife Alisa. They all landed on me, saying “You need to do Fight Club 2 as a comic.”

Chuck Palahniuk talks about the process and project of Fight Club 2, one of the most anticipated Darkhorse comics of the summer.

Created by myself, writer Giulie Speziani, and artist Penny Candy Studios, Cash & Carrie is about Dallas Cash and Inez Carrie, two middle-school detectives who attempt to solve mysteries for schools all around the world. Dallas is a tech junkie and believes in the supernatural while Inez is the captain of the wrestling team and is a realist. They may disagree on who, what, why and where, but no matter what, Cash and Carrie are best friends.

Shawn Pryor talks about his Kickstarter for Cash & Carrie. I love this idea so much.

The Hire This Woman feature at Comics Alliance is so great. I am a huge fan of Natalie Nourigat (especially her work on Bee & Puppycat).
