IMAGE announces LCSD exclusive SAGA Lying Cat statue

Facebooktwitterredditmail

November 19th is LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY, and publishers have been offering all sorts of exclusive books, covers, and goodies to help honor the brick and mortar tradition that is the LCS (Local Comic Shop). Today, IMAGE COMICS and SKYBOUND ENTERTAINMENT have dropped a doozie…an exclusive LYING CAT statue!

I probably can’t afford it, and I’m OK with that.
…LYING!

SAGA LYING CAT LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY STATUE ANNOUNCED

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.

This exquisitely detailed, limited edition, black-and-white Lying Cat will be an eight inch resin statue, hand numbered, and limited to 300 pieces worldwide.

The LCSD Lying Cat statue (Diamond Code AUG168737) will be available onSaturday, November 19th at participating comic book retailers. The final order cutoff deadline is Monday, September 26th.

About Local Comic Shop Day:
Local Comic Shop Day® will be held on November 19, 2016 this year.

For 2016, the date has been changed to the Saturday before Small Business Saturday. “We polled participating retailers if they preferred to have Local Comic Shop Day® onNovember 19th or November 26th,” said ComicsPRO President Peter Dolan (Main Street Comics, Middletown NY). “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.”

Local Comic Shop Day® is the only Comic Book Industry event created and run by retailers for retailers. “Last year nearly 400 storefronts participated in Local Comic Shop Day®,” said ComicsPRO Executive Director Marco Davanzo (Alakazam Comics, Irvine CA). “Each and every one of these retailers has a voice in how we grow the day—that’s why we polled them and will continue to ask their opinions as we go forward.”

FAN FAVORITE SUPERHERO STORY
COMES TO A CLOSE IN INVINCIBLE FINALE
“The End of All Things” begins final story arc
for the Kirkman and Ottley series  

Series artist Ryan Ottley returns to re-team with Robert Kirkman (THE WALKING DEAD, OUTCAST BY KIRKMAN & AZACETA) to launch the final story arc of the long-running creator-owned superhero series INVINCIBLE. “The End of All Things” Part One begins with INVINCIBLE #133 from Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment this November.

This twelve-part mega-story will touch every corner of the Invincible Universe, and when it’s over… It’s over. Every single story for the past thirteen years has been leading up to this ultimate showdown running up to INVINCIBLE #144—the very last issue in the series.

In a letter to fans, Kirkman explained his and Ottley’s decision to end the series. “We’ve got a little over a year to go, and it’s going to be one hell of a year! So please join us for our swan song, thirteen years in the making! We couldn’t have done it without you, the fans, so let’s all cross the finish line together!”

INVINCIBLE #133 hits stores on Wednesday, November 16th.

100 BULLETS team of Azzarello & Risso reunite for lycanthropic gangster tale, MOONSHINE from IMAGE

Facebooktwitterredditmail

MOONSHINE AN INTOXICATING NEW SERIES
Azzarello and Risso fans will get drunk off this werewolf prohibition story

Image Comics is pleased to announce that author Brian Azzarello (ALPHA KING) and artist Eduardo Risso, the New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award winning creative team that redefined the crime genre with 100 Bullets, have reunited for an all-new gangster tale with a horror-twist in MOONSHINE.

As an added treat for fans, the series is set to launch this October—making it the perfect Halloween read—and features a variant cover by legendary comics creator, Frank Miller.

Set during Prohibition, and deep in the backwoods of Appalachia, MOONSHINE #1 tells the story of Lou Pirlo, a city-slick “torpedo” sent from New York City to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, one Hiram Holt. What Lou doesn’t figure on is that Holt is just as cunning and ruthless as any NYC crime boss. Because not only will Holt do anything to protect his illicit booze operation, he’ll stop at nothing to protect a much darker family secret…a bloody, supernatural secret that must never see the light of day… or better still, the light of the full moon.

“It’s killer to be working with Eduardo again on a project that we’ve been dying to get to,” said Azzarello. “Like 100 Bullets, the high concept is a grabber, but the heart of the story is dealing with an extremely fractured ‘hero’ (Gangster, Lou Pirlo). He’s one of the most complex characters I’ve written in a long time and I can’t wait to dig into his many sides… seedy and otherwise.”

Risso added: “Being back together with Azzarello is always a pleasure. And to now be at Image, with the freedom to do what we do best, is an added thrill. This time around I’m doing my own coloring so that’s a new approach and I look forward to hearing what our fans think about it. It’s important as creators to keep challenging yourselves and I think we’re doing that with Moonshine!”

MOONSHINE #1 Cover A by Risso (Diamond Code AUG160556) and Cover B by Miller (Diamond Code AUG160557) will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, October 5th. The final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, September 12th.

Stjepan Sejic’s webcomic SWITCH goes to print

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Stjepan Sejic, the fan favorite artist/writer of SUNSTONE and recent artist on RAT QUEENS is bringing his take on WITCHBLADE to print. His webcomic, SWITCHED reimagines the character as a teenage girl, rather than street-tough cop, who finds the enchanted artifact. Here’s the press release from IMAGE.

SWITCH—A TEEN GIRL, A MYSTERIOUS GAUNTLET, ANCIENT POWER
Stjepan Sejic’s reimagining of the classic Witchblade origin story

Bestselling cartoonist Stjepan Sejic (SUNSTONE, DEATH VIGIL) brings to print his popular web-comic SWITCH. The new Top Cow series gives nod to the classic WitchbladeUniverse, but welcomes surprise crossover characters and—at its heart—explores the story of a teen girl trying to understand her mysterious new powers. Top Cow’s Witchblademeets New 52’s Batgirl in this fresh series told in delectable Sejic fashion and hitting stores on October 14th.

In SWITCH, a teenage girl must bear a mighty artifact that grants her immense powers… the catch? It’s a bit haunted!

SWITCH #1 (Diamond Code: AUG150506) will be available on Wednesday, October 14th. Final Order Cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, September 21st.
