Cosplay: Not Just For Humans Anymore

We're used to seeing entire families dress up as their favorite heroes and villains at Comicons - and now the house pet can get in on the fun!

Publisher Valiant Comics's biggest titles will have a special bonus cover showing costumed cats as their ultimate heroes this month.

You heard that right, costumed cats!

Locally, Comics Dungeon will host the December release of this all-new line of shelf covers with a live, in-person signing featuring stars (and real felines) on Saturday, December 17th.

Fans can meet the stars behind the purrfect covers gracing each of Valiant’s books throughout December. You can also pose for photos and get your Valiant Cat Cosplay Covers “paw-printed” for all time by these soon-to-be legendary cool cats themselves.

From high-flying Faith, to martial arts master Archer, to super-spy Ninjak - each cosplay cover captures a cute kitty turned fierce feline pouncing into action. Each model cat will sport a custom-built costume tailor-made and photographed by the minds behind the Cat Cosplay of the Feline Variety blog.

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 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.
