December 1, 2004, Runnemede, NJ – Dynamic
Forces, Inc. announced an agreement today with writer, artist
and creator Scott McCloud to produce the first ever statue
featuring McCloud’s signature character Zot!.
First published by Eclipse Comics in 1984,
Zot! ran for 32 issues until 1991. This statue is the first
ever, 3-dimensional rendering of McCloud’s creation.
“Scott has done so many things for comics,
from his creation of Zot! to his explorations of the art form
in Understanding and Reinventing Comics, that we’re
extremely honored to be working with his on this project,”
said Nick Barrucci, President of Dynamic Forces.
The piece is being prepared by sculptor and
painter Andrew Wiernicki under the watchful eye and direction
of the creator himself, who commented: “I always tried
to give Zot that "blast from the past" energy; this
terrific sculpture has it in spades! A perfect way to remember
that moment in comics’ history when the independent
movement was being born.”
Currently, the sculpture stands 4.25"
Wide x 5.75" in Height x 7" Deep with Zot himself
depicted in flight, atop a very sleek deco base emblazoned
with the hero’s logo!
The item is featured in this month’s
Preview Catalog (item #DEC042575) and is available for pre-order
now through your local comics shop, or directly from Dynamic
