Real! Live! Cats! Seattle’s Comics Dungeon to Host Signing with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY Stars Fawkes & Nak in December!

BSUSA_003_CAT-COSPLAY-COVERAcross the millennia-spanning arc of human history, mankind has celebrated many triumphs. But, from the pyramids to the moon landing, they all now pale in comparison to the landmark achievement that Valiant has bequeathed unto civilization…with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS!

To mark this most momentous occasion, Seattle’s Comics Dungeon will be officiating the December release of this all-new line of shelf covers with a live, in-person signing featuring stars (and real-life felines) Fawkes and Nak, alongside Freyu – creator of the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog and trusted human – on Saturday, December 17th! From 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm PT, meet the stars behind the purr-aculous covers gracing each of Valiant’s releases throughout December, pose for photos, and get your VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS paw-printed for all eternity by the legends themselves!

Arriving in stores this December, bear witness as ordinary, household feline companions are transformed into the world’s most valiant heroes for a fur-bulous new line of shelf photo covers spanning 10 best-selling series! From teenage martial arts master Archer to reality-warping cosmonaut Divinity to sky-soaring sensation Faith and MI-6 super-spy Ninjak, each VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVER captures a furried friend pouncing into action as one of Valiant’s leading heroes inside a custom-built costume – tailor-made and photographed by the minds behind the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog.

Since being unveiled to a world unready to the absorb the full spectrum of their glory, Valiant’s VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS have gone from comic book sensation to full-blown viral phenomenon through all the corners of the internet (including the sketchy ones), who are hailing the publisher’s latest initiative as the greatest contribution to human-feline relations since the lint roller:

“This may be the best thing to happen in the history of comics.” – Book Riot

“The greatest variant covers of all time…” – Gizmodo/io9

“Possibly the best comics news ever…” – Vulture

“THIS. THIS IS EVERYTHING… There will only be the time BEFORE the Valiant Cat Cosplay Covers and the time AFTER the Valiant Cat Cosplay Covers. It’s a new, modern world of comics. What a time to be alive.” – The Beat

“Exactly as amazing as it sounds.” – ComicsAlliance

“If there’s one thing the internet has taught us, it’s that cats make everything better.” – Comic Book Resources

“Kudos for finding the perfect cats to cosplay as different Valiant heroes… One of them even has a little cat gun, for his cat murders.” – Inverse

“Surprisingly enough, Cat-Armstrong is not drunk.” – GameSpot

“Cat cosplay covers that also go to a good cause? That makes this fun kitty collaboration even better.” – The Mary Sue

A portion of the proceeds from all VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS sold will benefit the Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition (BARC), a New York-based non-profit that operates a beloved, no-kill shelter for cats and dogs in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. BARC’s mission is to provide a safe haven for abandoned animals – with quality food, shelter, medical attention, and the love they deserve – and to find permanent loving homes for them.

Designed by the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog – the gold standard of the “cat cosplay” genre that also boasts a legion of fans and followers across Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook – Valiant’s VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS mark their first officially sponsored collaboration between CCFV and a comic book publisher or entertainment company.

Available as “order-all” covers across all of Valiant’s December 2016 series, each VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVER will be available for retailers to order in unlimited quantities at the standard suggested retail price:

  • A&A: THE ADVENTURES OF ARCHER & ARMSTRONG #10
  • BLOODSHOT U.S.A. #3 (of 4)
  • BRITANNIA #4 (of 4)
  • DIVINITY III: STALINVERSE #1 (of 4)
  • FAITH #6
  • GENERATION ZERO #5
  • HARBINGER RENEGADES #2 
  • NINJAK #22
  • SAVAGE #2 (of 4)
  • WRATH OF THE ETERNAL WARRIOR #14

They’re intrepid! They’re fearless! They’re cats! This December, the animal kingdom is invading the Valiant Universe with VALIANT CAT COSPLAY COVERS! Pick up yours…then be there when Seattle’s Comics Dungeon hosts the comic book signing of nine lifetimes, only on December 17th!

Aspiring reporter by day and dedicated crime-fighter by night, Faith has tackled every obstacle in her path with confidence – like those crushing deadlines at work, the long-distance boyfriend half a world away, and the missing back issues that plague her comics collection! But, unbeknownst to her, Faith is about to collide with the one force she never saw coming: an up-and-coming super-villain bent on snuffing her out once and for all! But who is lurking behind the mask of her new foe…and could they be the one person capable of rendering Faith powerless?
