At New York Comic Con, DC Collectibles revealed its 102nd Batman: Black & White statue, designed by artist and DC Co-Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee. The design is based on one of the Caped Crusader's most famous stories, written by Jeph Loeb and penciled by Lee himself, Batman: Hush.
Lee's latest addition to the Batman: Black & White line marks his fifth contribution to the fan-favorite series. "With the line gaining even more notoriety the DC Collectibles team knew they had to keep going above and beyond for the line’s fans..." DC Collectibles declared. This news coincides with the company's recent announcements that the 100th and 101st statues in the Batman: Black & White line will be designed by legendary artists Todd MacFarlane and Frank Miller respectively.
DC Collectibles also showed off a multitude of other Batman-inspired merchandise at NYCC, including a figurine of The Batman Who Laughs.
The newly announced statues are available for pre-order today from select retailers and are set to debut in-store sometime in 2020.
In line with Lee's involvement with the statue, DC released over the summer an animated film adaptation (directed by Justin Copeland) of the Batman: Hush storyline. Both the animated film and the story's original graphic novel are available today.
