The Ancestor of Lying Cat
Do you know Lying Cat? She’s a fan favorite character in Saga, the science fiction comic by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples, as shown here.
My friend Leah has been reading the Joss Whedon/John Cassaday run on Astonishing X-Men, and she found the following panel of the cat-like Beast in issue #24, which was published in 2008 — four years before Saga and Lying Cat debuted in 2012.
Of course, it’s a coincidence, but I thought some of you might find it amusing. I hadn’t realized that it was commonly thought that cats could sense lies. Apologies for the odd angle of the panel; I was shooting it from the Astonishing X-Men Omnibus, which is quite a large book.
