I shall become a bat...

I'm not one for buying comic book based statuary, but I have to say that I'm tempted by this item coming out early next year.  Not $90 tempted, but close...




There's something to strike fear in the hearts of the superstitious and cowardly. That's a statue of the Bill Finger and Bob Kane creation Batman based on the work of Sergio Aragones, for those not familiar with the character or the artist.

This ain't too bad, neither:



Again, not $75 of interest, but not a bad rendition of the Len Wein / Bernie Wrightson creation Swamp Thing, based on the artwork of Gary Frank, who I don't think has any history with the character yet (but with recent publishing news that might change), but is a solid artist.  I sometimes regret not getting the earlier Swamp Thing statue based on Michael Zulli's painting of the character.

  1. That's great. I agree with you on the price tag, but if I was flush, I'd get the Aragones over some of the others.
    On the Swampy, it's close to full figure. I can't stand those busts and truncated figures. If I'm going to get a statue, I want the whole figure. YMMV, of course.
