DC Collectibles statue line will be ready for its close up with 2018 offerings based on the artwork of Joëlle Jones (SUPERGIRL: BEING SUPER). DCC made the big announcement today at WonderCon.
‘One of my favorite things about designing sculptures is being able to capture the essence of the character in statue form,’ Jones said in a statement. ‘Evaluating the small nuances you appreciate in a character and using that to dictate their gestures, allows opportunities for expression you don’t necessarily get when creating a comic book.’
Jones’ first statue will be based on The Joker’s main squeeze with Harley Quinn. I’m interested in seeing what Jones will do in differentiating her take on Harley since we’ve seen so many looks at the character at this point.
Next up will be Supergirl, Batgirl and Mera, according to DC Collectibles. Those are all smart choices considering their increased attention in the spotlight thanks to the DC Cinematic Universe. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we see Jones’ take on Wonder Woman.
Inspired by the powerful women of the DC Universe, Cover Girls has been a long-running line for DC Collectibles, with dynamic depictions of the most famous superheroines and supervillains in the form of premium 9” statues.
Created in 2009, the DC Cover Girls line has been graced by talented artists, most recently with famed designers Adam Hughes and Stanley Lau leaving their mark through creative interpretations of the renowned characters.
With an already strong presence at DC through her work on the critically acclaimed comic, SUPERGIRL: BEING SUPER, Jones will lend her unique style and uncanny ability to capture energy and expression, and hail as the first female designer of the Cover Girls line.
