SAGA has been one of Image Comics’ most popular comics since its inception. And Lying Cat has been one of the standout characters. Lying Cat has emerged as a bit of a breakout character. I haven’t started reading SAGA yet (I know, I know), but even I know about Lying Cat.
To capitalize on its popularity, Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment are releasing an exclusive SAGA statue of Lying Cat. The statue will be available Nov. 19 as part of the 2016 Local Comic Shop Day.
Image Comics/Skybound is pleased to reveal an exclusive SAGA statue of the fan-favorite character Lying Cat in celebration of this year’s Local Comic Shop Day. The limited edition black and white statue is hand numbered.
This isn’t going to be a mass produced item at only 300 pieces worldwide. If you’re interested, make sure to track down the local comic book shop near you. Not sure where your closest comic book shop is located? Use this link to find your nearest shop.
Already know where you shop is and want to make sure they order one for you? Let them know to use Diamond Code AUG168737. Today — Sept. 26 — is the final order cutoff deadline.
Local Comic Shop Day previously was held on Small Business Saturday. That’s the day after Black Friday in an effort to encourage holiday shoppers to remember to support their neighborhood businesses.
‘We polled participating retailers if they preferred to have Local Comic Shop Day® on November 19th or November 26th,’ said ComicsPRO President Peter Dolan (Main Street Comics, Middletown NY) in a statement. ‘By a margin of 73% to 27%, our retailers wanted to change the date to the earlier Saturday so it would have a distinct identity separate from Small Business Saturday.’
Marco Davanzo, ComicsPRO Executive Director, said nearly 400 comic book shops participated in Local Comic Shop Day last year.
