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.”

Petition For A Stan Lee Memorial Statue In New York City

Stan Lee is one of the most beloved figures in the comic book world known for revolutionizing the industry in the 1960s, when he created the mythic figures that are still inspiring new generations to flock to the cinema. Lee’s creations – Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, most of the Avengers (Hulk, Iron Man, Thor), Daredevil and Doctor Strange – helped to rescue the costumed superhero from obscurity and to usher in the silver age of American comic books.

When Lee passed away last November, a small group of fans came together to campaign online in an attempt to get the City of New York to commission a memorial statue for the late publisher and it seems now that a petition for the proposed monument is gaining a lot of steam on the internet.

The group of fans created the petition on Change.org in hopes of getting the attention of some of New York City’s most prominent figures, capable of erecting the statue. Fans chose the famous city for the memorial statue as it was the original home of Lee, where he was born in December 1922. Lee lived in New York City with his wife Joan until they moved to Los Angeles in the early 1980s.

Chick HERE to sign a petition for Marvel Legend Stanley Martin Lieber (Stan Lee) to get a statue in his hometown of Manhattan, New York City, NY, to forever immortalize and honor his amazing legacy.

DC Collectibles 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.

Now you can purchase a “Batman: Black & White” statue based on Kuwata’s character design, complete with stylized cape, manga-style shading, and Kuwata’s take on the Caped Crusader’s arsenal of gadgets. No Batman collection would be complete without it!

 

Only 5,000 individually numbered 1/10-scale statues have been produced. Available now online and at various comic book shops.

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.

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.
