Custom Batman Who Laughs & Red Death Figures Are a Metal Fan’s Dream

With Dark Nights: Metal in full swing over at DC Comics, artist Andrew Dudley has decided to rock out with custom figures of his own, depicting two of the evil Batmen from the Dark Multiverse.

Dudley first dropped a couple pieces on Instagram based on The Red Death, an amalgamation of Bruce Wayne and the Barry Allen/The FLash, after Bruce successfully siphoned the Speed Force out of the character in order to control crime via time travel. While now being able to use Flash’s abilities, Barry’s persona is still stuck within Bruce’s body trying to fight back, but it didn’t prove to be enough to prevent the demonic Barbatos from recruiting the entity.

Had to post another shot of my take on Red Death for the release of the comic tomorrow! Everyone go check it out at your local comic store! So stoked! #batman #reddeath #darknightsmetal #metal #flash #brucewayne #scottsnyder #gregcapullo #dccomics #gotham #arkham #acba #oneofakind #custom #repaint #dceu #barryallen #comicart #comicnerd #nerdlife #artistsoninstagram #artwork #art #instaart

His other nightmarish figure is based on The Batman Who Laughs, which is a demented union of the Caped Crusader and his arch-nemesis The Joker. He boasts the fetish gear, blood-red smile and razor-like talons just like in the comics, where he also rolls with a crew of ravenous and demonic Robins.

I was going to wait until closer to Halloween to post this, but…I love it and I can’t wait that long! Last night, I started working on another one of the new DC characters from @ssnyder1835 and @real_greg_capullo! This is The Batman Who Laughs from the massive Dark Nights Metal event. Be sure to check it out at your local comic store! This is by far one of my favorite custom projects that I’ve ever worked on to this point.

Regarding this particular being, writer Scott Snyder told CBR that the creature is “Bruce asking, ‘What if I killed the Joker and I found out that he has a toxin in his heart that essentially made whoever kills him the next Joker, and that’s why he’s always tried to get Batman to kill him?’ It’s one of the darkest stories we could do.”
