THE CS MOORE STUDIO AND FANTASTIC REALM PARTNER FOR MOORE'S NEXT SIGNATURE SERIES RELEASE: THE CALIE STATUE
The CS Moore Studio Ltd. is pleased to announce an agreement with
industry leading retailer Fantastic Realm to create a statue based on Zenescope
Entertainment's Grimm Fairy Tales: Return to Wonderland. The statue design of
Carroll Ann "Calie" Liddle is inspired by a limited-edition print
created by fan-favorite artist Billy Tucci for Fantastic Realm.
Launched in 2006 by Zenescope, Return to Wonderland skyrocketed in the
Independent Comic best sellers standings and built on the success of
Zenescope's Grimm Fairy Tales. The story follows the now grown Alice
Liddle as she travels back to Wonderland - this time with her 18 year old
daughter Calie in tow. With stunning art and a new take on the Alice in
Wonderland fairy tale, Zenescope's stories have riveted readers and garnered
Known for working with top artists in the comics field to produce art for
special edition comics and limited edition prints, Fantastic Realm has built
a top reputation for quality and collectability.
The 1/6 scale statue of Calie, around whom the Return to Wonderland story
centers, will be the fourth release in The CS Moore Studio's best selling
Signature Series line of sultry female statues. As with the previous
releases in this series - Lady Death, Armor Bikini Witchblade, and Dark Ivory -
Calie will be sculpted by award winning Studio founder Clayburn Moore. Tucci's
saucy take on Zenescope's sexy character is a perfect pairing to Moore's
unmatched talent for creating drop-dead gorgeous statues.
"I'm looking forward to working with Fantastic Realm on this fascinating
recreation of the Alice and Wonderland fairytale. My friend Billy Tucci's
gorgeous design will translate beautifully into our Signature Series
line," said Moore.
"On behalf of Fantastic Realm, I'd like to thank Clay for his amazing
vision, his talent and professionalism in all aspects of this process. We are
honored to be working with such a fine and talented gentleman and we are very
confident that this piece will become an instant classic," said Jeff
Schwartz, President of Fantastic Realm. "Special thanks to Billy Tucci for
helping develop this design and using his incredible skills to produce a piece
that has already become one of the most recognizable and loved covers in modern
comics. We could not have picked a better piece as the basis for Fantastic
Realm's first statue. Also, special thanks to the fine people at Zenescope for
providing the source material that allowed this piece to come to fruition."
Final price and edition size will be determined as the Calie Statue's Fall 2009
