On Saturday, December 17th the web’s most famous cosplaying kitties will be at Seattle’s Comics Dungeon. Their human, Freyu is no slouch either, as the creator of the purrfect blog, Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety and their home on the internet. Freyu will also be accompanying the fur babies to the comic shop.
But this whole shebang marks one of the coolest things to happen in comics in a long time…
These two furry fiends will grace ten covers across Valiant‘s diverse CAT-alogue. The ‘Valiant Cosplay Cat Covers’ will be available for the revitalized publishers ten best series. The covers will hit stores in December and retailers will be able to order in unlimited quantities at the standard suggested price.
But the best part of this whole cat-astrophe is that a portion of the proceeds will go to BARC (Brooklyn Animal Rescue Coalition). BARC is an excellent non-profit that runs a non-kill shelter for meow-meows and ruff-ruffs in the heart of Williamsburg (Brooklyn). They are the overseers for abandoned and surrendered pets in one of Manhattan’s busiest neighborhoods. BARC provides food, medicine, medical attention, and shelter in a loving environment until the animals find fuuurever homes.
Valiant has certainly formed an outstanding partnership and I hope this trend continues with shelters across the country. Other publishers, the chewed up tennis ball is in your court now!
