A Dramatic Display: All 100 Batman: Black & White Statues

This year, DC Collectibles celebrated one of their biggest announcements yet. They revealed their 100th Batman: Black & White Statue, based on the art of famed artist Todd McFarlane. To celebrate, they showcased all 100 statues in an epic display at the new Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park, San Diego as part of the Batman 80th Anniversary celebration at San Diego Comic-Con. Before that moment, all 100 statues had never been seen together before.

It’s a milestone that has helped to set DC Collectibles apart from other companies, as the Batman: Black & White line is one of the longest running collectible lines of all time. Best of all, with the new Todd McFarlane statue releasing in June 2020, it’s clear the popular line isn’t going anywhere. So, to pay tribute to all of the artists and fans who have worked on or supported the line, let’s look back on Batman: Black & White’s start and all of the other amazing statues which have led up to this moment.

The first statue in the line arrived in 2005, Batman by Eduardo Risso (above), and would set the tone for what the line was to become—a collector’s line which combines DC’s most popular superhero with individual artists’ interpretations. This idea is the basis of what DC Collectibles was and is all about—melding classic characters with unique art designs.

Fast forward a bit now to 2009. It was a big year for the line, as 2009 saw not only Batman: Black & White’s 25th statue hit stores, Batman by David Mazzucchelli, but it was also the first year a character other than Batman appeared in the line. This was The Joker by Jim Lee (below). Ironically, this character proved to be even more popular in sales than Batman himself, and opened the door for other characters from Gotham to make their debut in the line, such as Brian Bolland’s Penguin, Steve Rude’s Catwoman and Kelley Jones’ Bane.

The 50th statue in 2013 was a gravity-defying piece by Sean Murphy. Murphy would go on to create two more statues for the line in 2019. One year later, in 2014, the line’s most popular statue in history would be revealed, and ironically it was not Batman! Bruce Timm’s Harley Quinn is the best-selling statue in the line so far. Since the original statue’s release, this piece has not only been turned into a 12-inch Designer Series Statue, but also a life-sized 1:1 scale statue.

The Joker appeared again as statue #75, based on the art of popular artist, Frank Miller, continuing the character’s popularity within the line.

Other heroes from Gotham eventually joined the ranks of Batman: Black & White as well such as Batgirl with designs by Babs Tarr and Bruce Timm. Robin appeared with designs by Carmine Infantino and Frank Quitely. Perhaps one of the most popular of these heroes, however, is Nightwing by Jim Lee, based on his designs from Hush. This statue also got turned into a 12-inch DC Designer Series Statue.

Over the past 15 years, the Batman: Black & White line has endured because of its breadth and variety of art styles and the enduring popularity of its subject and his world. The line celebrates all manner of artists and artistic interpretations, from the cartoonish Sergio Aragones at #39 to the unique roller-blading Batman by Kim Jung Gi.

Next year is sure to be one of the best years yet for the line with statues by Gene Colan, Doug Mahnke and the highly anticipated 100th Todd McFarlane Batman. Also, recently announced is the Armored Batman by Frank Miller, the Hush Batman by Jim Lee and the fearsome Batmonster by Greg Capullo, bringing the total number of available or announced Batman: Black & White statues to 103.

The Batman: Black & White line has proven that something as simple as two colors and one character can inspire almost two decades worth of collectibles. It’s a line that continues to endure and will hold a special place in display cases for Batman fans for many more years to come. We invite you now to take a look at the full collection of Batman: Black & White statues from one to 100 in a special graphic display below. Which ones do you own?

DC Collectibles To Unveil The 100th Statue In The Batman Black And White Collection At San Diego Comic Con

In celebration of the 80th anniversary, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Collectibles announced today that the 100th Batman Black and White statue in the popular ongoing DC Collectibles line will be unveiled at the forthcoming San Diego Comic-Con Museum on July 17.

A special over 6-foot life-size version of the Todd McFarlane-designed statue will be revealed during a special ceremony recognizing DC’s iconic Super Hero, Batman, the inaugural inductee into the Comic-Con Museum Hall of Fame. 

The milestone #100 statue is based off McFarlane’s own cover of Batman issue #423. As with the previous 99 in the series, McFarlane’s design, reinforces the core value of DC Collectibles to represent the printed page in 3D form and pays homage to Batman’s rich legacy. 

Guests of the Museum will also have the rare opportunity to see the current 100-statue series throughout the week as part of The Batman Experience Powered by AT&T at the Comic-Con Museum in Balboa Park. Not only will #100 be revealed with its special life-size version, but #99 by Doug Mahnke will be making its first public appearance.

Following the Comic-Con Museum launch event titled, “The Gathering” which will feature a “black carpet reception,” the life-size #100 Black & White statue will be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting the Comic-Con Museum.

“To simply be a part of the 80th anniversary of a character that has always held such a special place in my heart is an honor,” McFarlane said. “But in designing this statue I truly feel like I’m adding to Batman’s legacy and in the process benefitting a hall of fame that will become an institution both for comic fans and the San Diego community.”
