DC Collectibles Reveals New 2018 DC Artist Alley Line

Designer super hero toys — meet street art. Announced over the weekend via an exclusive reveal at designer toy and comic convention, Five Points Festival, DC Collectibles is teaming up with some of the most talented independent artists in the industry to launch the new line, DC Artist Alley.

Inspired by the popular comic convention experience, DC Artist Alley will serve as an artist-focused vinyl statue line that merges indie design with the most iconic characters in the DC Universe. Serving up highly detailed, limited edition PVC figures, the first wave of releases will launch in 2018 and will feature a reimaging of seven classic characters – three from each artist, with more artists to follow.

“The motivation to create a line celebrating radical new artists stems from years of visiting cons and being impressed by the raw talent and artwork on display,” says Jim Fletcher, Executive Creative Director, DC Collectibles. “When we decided to launch DC Artist Alley, we approached visionaries we felt would best represent the line, while bringing their own creative signature to our classic characters.”

Designs will include illustrator Chris Uminga’s offbeat interpretations of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, Barcelonian-bred artist, Sho Murase’s stylish designs for Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, and HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque’s exaggerated designs on The Joker, Batman and Harley Quinn. Each figure will also be accompanied by a print showcasing its original artwork.

Kotobukiya Announces DC Comics The Joker Killing Joke 2nd Edition ARTFX Statue

1

Kotobukiya has posted photos and details for an updated version of an older statue. They have refined their DC Comics The Joker – Killing Joke for an all new Second Edition ARTFX Statue. The statue is based off the iconic cover by Brian Bolland. It will include a Red Hood themed statue base as well. Here are more details from Koto:

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya returns to the DC Universe ARTFX Statue series with a new edition of a previously released classic. The Clown Prince of Crime is back in an updated (and streamlined) new version with The Joker -Killing Joke- 2nd Edition! A 1988 graphic novel by Alan Moore and drawn by Brian Bolland, The Killing Joke is a story about Joker and how he came to be. Other than an interesting origin story for him, the book also features one of the most famous scenes in the history of comics: Joker shooting Barbara Gordon (which would in turn lead to her becoming the hero Oracle). Almost as famous as its contents is Killing Joke’s iconic cover image, and this 2nd Edition statue replicates it with new features and a simplified presentation.

Featuring a portrait inspired by the graphic novel cover art coupled with an original pose by Kotobukiya, this statue brings the maniacal clown to life that’s sure to please any DC Comics reader. In this new edition Joker stands on the helmet and cape of the original Red Hood, smiling his huge toothy grin as he snaps a photo on his old school film camera. The sadistic villain’s costume is incredibly detailed, showing off every seam, cuff, button, crease, and more on his purple three piece suit and trench coat. His outfit is even topped off by authentic studded spats, fedora, iconic white gloves, and lapel-pinned flower. The Joker’s elongated white painted face leaps right off of the graphic novel cover with its deep laugh lines, left eye squeezed shut, and unruly green hair peeking out from under his hat. This 2nd Edition does not include the original light-up gimmick, but Joker fans will love the subtle nod to one the villain’s alter ego’s literally at his feet!

The Joker -Killing Joke- 2nd Edition stands 12 inches tall (1/6th scale) on his special updated display base featuring the Red Hood costume. The Joker is an incredible statue capturing one of the most famous graphic novels of all time, and he’ll look great on display or alongside other DC Comics-inspired statues from Kotobukiya like the Batman Black Costume version.

Look for the statue to be released in June. You can pre-order it HERE for $99.99.

Kotobukiya DC Comics Batman Animated ARTFX+ Statue

Kotobukiya’s awesome 1/10th scale DC Comics collection has brought you New 52 heroes and villains, Classic Costume retro-inspired figures, and more, and now it expands into a whole new world with one of the most popular incarnations of the Dark Knight ever, Batman Animated! That’s right, Batman: The Animated Series is the inspiration behind this new statue, and it perfectly recreates the Caped Crusader in the iconic Bruce Timm animated style.

Batman is captured in a wide stance, ready to spring into action against the superstitious, cowardly lot if bad guys who call Gotham City home. Bruce Wayne has never looked better with his chunky proportions and bold costume, primarily gray and black with a bright yellow utility belt, black and yellow bat-symbol, and a cool blue shadow effect on the inside of his cape. Of course, all of the familiar bat elements are included like the scalloped cutouts on his cape, pointy cowl, and the blades on his forearms.

Best of all, Batman comes with multiple interchangeable parts so you can customize your display with three different sets of eyes (normal, squinting, and “weak”), three facial expressions (open mouth, scowl, and clenched teeth), and three poses for the right hand (thumbs up, holding a batarang, or holding a grapnel gun)! Sculpted by Keita Misonou, Batman Animated stands just under 7 ½ inches tall (1/10th scale) on his included display base with perfect stability. He’s the perfect centerpiece for your Batman collection and looks great alongside other Batman statues from Kotobukiya.

Check out some pics of the figure — which is currently available to order HERE for $49.99.

Disney Commemorates Stan Lee’s 75 Years at Marvel

1

The Chairman of The Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger, recently presented Stan “The Man” Lee with a one-of-a-kind bronze statue to commemorate the legendary comic book writer’s 75-year career at Marvel.

The bronze features Spider-Man, one of Lee’s most famous co-creations (in collaboration with Steve Ditko), alongside Mickey Mouse, a nod to Marvel’s acquisition by Disney in 2009.

Since Disney’s purchase of Marvel, the two entities have found plenty of shared box-office success with record-setting films like “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3” and “Captain America: Civil War.” Many of the characters in these Marvel Studios’ films were co-created by Lee, including Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Doctor Strange.

Stan Lee has worked in the comics industry since he was a teenager, where he got his start as an assistant at Timely Comics in 1939. He is primarily known for his foundational work at Marvel, alongside artists Jacky Kirby and Steve Ditko. With these collaborators, he had a hand in creating the X-Men, Fantastic Four and other staples of Marvel’s IP stable. For his achievements, he received a National Medal of Arts in 2008, and was inducted into both the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995.
