DC is already a big player in the collectibles game, but now the comic publisher is shaking things up a bit with some indie-styled designs — and we want, like, all of them.
The new releases are part of DC Collectibles’ new Artist Alley line, which are designed to give creators free rein to put their own touch on these characters. This line includes Chris Uminga’s Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman; artist Sho Murase’s Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn; and HaiNaNu “Nooligan” Saulque’s Joker, Batman and Harley Quinn. Along with the figure, the sets also include art of the original design it’s based on.
“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,” Jim Fletcher, Executive Creative Director of DC Collectibles, said in a statement. “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.”
Considering just how many different figures are out there of these characters, this is a clever way to provide something fresh for fans. Check out some sample art of the line below and let us know what you’ll be picking up:
