Straight from the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke, acclaimed artist Brian Bolland’s rendition of The Joker gets the Designer Series treatment.
Bolland’s version of the Clown Prince of Crime is one of the most iconic, recognisable renditions of the character, and he’s now been brought to the Designer Series by sculptor David Giraud.
This is the latest statue in the DC Designer line, which also includes statues of Superman, Hareky Quinn and Wonder Woman, all offered at 1:6 scale and standing 13 inches tall.
• The statue will be available in July 2017 at comic shops, specialty stores, and online shops – check out the range here on ForbiddenPlanet.com – using this link helps support downthetubes
