To celebrate Local Comic Shop Day, Image and Skybound are joining forces to release an extremely limited edition statue of the fan favourite Saga character Lying Cat.
The exceptionally detailed black & white statue will be limited to just 300 pieces worldwide with each piece individually hand numbered. Lying Cat will measure 8 inches tall and is crafted from casting resin. The statue will be available November 19 in whichever comic stores are lucky enough to secure stock. There is currently no word on price. Lying Cat was introduced in Saga #1 as Will’s sidekick and is a large sphinx-like cat that can tell when people are lying and confronts them by simply saying “lying”.
Local Comic Shop Day is an annual industry event run by retailers for retailers. Last year nearly 400 stores participated. Similar to Record Store Day, Local Comic Shop Day aims to get you and newcomers supporting local businesses. As always, free and limited edition comics will be available. Stay tuned to Play Nice Play Now as we will have a full rundown of these items closer to the date.
