Image Releases Statue of The Lying Cat from Saga for Local Comic Shop Day
One of the fan favorite characters from Image Comics’ Saga
is going to get a new attractive statue. Image and Skybound Entertainment are releasing an exclusive statue of The Lying Cat for the 2016 Local Comic Shop Day. In Saga
from Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, The Lying Cat is an over-sized cat who can tell if someone is lying. The Cat was a longtime companion of the bounty hunter The Will
, though the cat has been scarcely seen in the series lately.
The Lying Cat statue is a very limited release, as only 300 will be produced worldwide. Made of resin, the highly-detailed statue will be eight inches in height. The Lying Cat statue will be available to order from participating comic stores, and the order code for the statue is Diamond Code AUG168737. Also, the final deadline for orders is Monday, September 26th.
The announcement of this statue will be met with a great deal of excitement. Although there is not much of it, merchandise for The Lying Cat is very popular. A few years ago, Image Comics released an exclusive T-shirt featuring The Lying Cat and it sold out very rapidly. With so few items being made, The Lying Cat statue figures to also be a hot seller. The price of the statue was not available.
Local Comic Shop Day is a comic book event day to highlight retailers and comic book shops. This year, Local Comic Shop Day will be held on November 19th rather than November 26th, as it was last year. Not to be confused with Free Comic Book Day (which takes place in May), Local Comic Shop Day showcases the comic shops that make up the comic book community around the world. Nearly 400 stores participated in the event last year. Additionally, many stores will have signings, sales and other promotions.
