James Groman Brings His Twisted Art Style To DC Collectibles As Next DC Artists Alley Designer

Hours before the DesignerCon 2018 show floor opens, superstar designer toy artist James Groman revealed via Instagram his monstrous reimaginings of Batman and his Rogues Gallery for his upcoming DC Artists Alley designer vinyl collaboration with DC Collectibles.

Groman is best known for his outlandish designs as seen in many of his works including the highly popular Madballs toy series. Groman now brings his signature art style to the DC Universe and offers his terrifying spin on Batman, Killer Croc, The Joker and Two-Face as 7”-scale designer vinyl figures. The figures are designed and sculpted by the artist and will be on display at this weekend’s DesignerCon convention in Anaheim, CA, at the DC Collectibles booth (#1500). 

“When DC Collectibles asked me to design and sculpt my own renditions of DC’s iconic Dark Knight and a few of his villainous adversaries, I was excited and intrigued,” said Groman. “Growing up, I wasn’t as big a fan of costumed heroes like most of my friends and was usually drawn to characters like Swamp Thing, Monster of Frankenstein and Werewolf by Night. With that said, I’ve always been a Batman fan, mostly because of his dark nature and origins, and he has THE BEST villains. Working with Jim Fletcher and Trevor Zammit at DC Collectibles on these figures has been so creatively satisfying! It was interesting to see just how far we could take the designs but still remain respectful of each character’s basic DNA. I can only hope this collection leads to even more collaborations with DC Collectibles.”

Groman’s DC Artists Alley designer vinyls will hit stores in October 2019 and are available to preorder now. DesignerCon attendees at this weekend’s convention can take home a custom art print and enamel pin designed by Groman. 

DC Artists Alley Designer Vinyls by James Groman:

– Characters: Batman, Killer Croc, The Joker and Two-Face
– All figures are designed and sculpted by James Groman
– Size: 7” scale
– MSRP: $65.00 each

DC Collectibles Unveils Limited Jiro Kuwata Batman Statue

Jiro Kuwata is a superhero legend in Japan. He’s the artist behind the country’s first costumed superhero 8 Man created in the 1960s. 8 Man remained a cultural touchstone in Japan, but after Kawata’s run he moved on to another major work: DC Comic’s Batman. Known as Bat-Manga, Kuwata’s crisp artwork and stories of the caped crusader remained limited to Japan for decades and didn’t appear stateside until 2008.

A “Batman: Black & White” statue based on Kuwata’s character design, complete with stylized cape, and manga-style shading will go on sale in January 2019, and pre-orders will open on May 22. 

Only 5,000 individually numbered 1/10-scale statues will be produced and each will retail for $80.

DC Collectibles Reveal Gerard Way’s Batman & Joker Statues

Ahead of this weekend’s New York Toy Fair, DC Collectibles has unveiled a sneak peek of its 2018 lineup, which includes two new entries in its Batman: Black and White line, based on artwork by the curator of Young Animal, Gerard Way.

The statues of Batman and Joker are based on illustrations revealed by Way on Twitter in 2013. The designs are titled “Kingdom of the Mad,” a Batman story that was approved by DC Entertainment for release through Vertigo but unfortunately never saw the light of day.

Beyond the Dark Knight and The Joker, Way also released designs for Robin, Two-Face, The Penguin, The Riddler and Mr. Freeze, hinting at a massive and story. Now, however, at least part of Way’s vision will live on in the form of these statues.

Perhaps, if the demand for the statues proves strong, DC could finally be persuaded to make the miniseries a reality.

Priced at $80 each, the two statues will be released in October 2018.
