DC Designer Series Frank Miller Batman Statue

DC Collectibles, the award-winning line of collectibles, today announced its 2019 lineup ahead of this year’s American International Toy Fair in New York. One reveal that I am super excited about is the DC Designer Series Frank Miller Batman Statue.

Based on the iconic cover for Batman: The Dark Knight Returns #2 by Frank Miller, an older and wiser Batman is crouched and ready to take on a gang of violent mutants. Costume torn and with gritted teeth, The Dark Knight is about to prove that Gotham’s streets are his!

The statue will be available in November 2019.

Suntup Editions To Release Don Maitz Desperation Covers Collection Print

Suntup Editions announces their latest addition to The Covers Collection, Don Maitz’s incredible cover art from the Donald M. Grant limited edition of Desperation by Stephen King.

King derived inspiration for Desperation during a cross-country drive in 1991. During his travels, the author visited the small desert community of Ruth, Nevada, and found it so desolate he thought the townspeople must all be dead. He began to wonder who might have killed them, and the thought occurred that the town’s sheriff had done so.

Don Maitz’s startling cover art for the Donald M. Grant edition features an image of Desperation’s crazed town sheriff, Collie Entragian — gun in hand and blood dripping from the mouth. Maitz’s work on the Grant edition is awe inspiring, but it was not without its difficulties. Some of the original artwork Matiz created for Desperation was stolen during transit to a fantasy convention and never made it to the publisher, causing the artist to create replacement works. In addition to this, King had changed a plot element that required Maitz to make last-minute changes to the art. The result, of course, is some of the most beloved art to have graced a King limited edition, with many collectors citing this particular cover among their all-time favorites. The Grant edition was published in 1996, the same year as the first edition.

These prints are hand-signed by Don Maitz, who has also created 20 different drawings, one for each of the remarque prints which will be assigned at random. Three of these remarque prints will be available for the purchase at the time of release.

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 copies per size, worldwide.

Part support group, part superhero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

Doom Patrol stars Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Brendan Fraser as Robotman, Matt Bomer as Negative Man, Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder/The Chief, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane and Alan Tudyk as Mr. Nobody.

The series will be making its debut on February 15, exclusively on DC Universe.

Brandi Carlile Performs Solo Acoustic The Joke On Ellen

Singer Brandi Carlile took the stage with a moving acoustic version of her Grammy-winning song, “The Joke.” She also chatted with Ellen about her big night at the awards show, where she won three Grammys, and was the most nominated female artist of the night.

Carlile’s appearance on Ellen also had a special significance — during one of her three acceptance speeches at the Grammys, the singer paid tribute to host Ellen DeGeneres for inspiring her to come out as a teenager. “It’s a brave thing to do, too,” DeGeneres tells Carlile after the performance. “Most people that are performing, they worry about their career, so it’s a brave thing for you to be open and out.”

When combined, the two worlds make each other even more compelling and fun. LEGO Hidden Side marks the first time the company introduces one of its play themes as a service.After launch, the app experience will continue to expand with the addition of new ghosts, new game challenges, and randomization of gameplay so the experience is different every time kids play.
