NYCC: DCeased Batman, Joker & More Join DC Essentials Action Figure Line

Before unveiling a massive slate of new merchandise at New York Comic Con, DC Collectibles has revealed new additions to its fan-favorite DC Essentials action figure line inspired by Tom Taylor, Trevor Hairsine and James Harren's DCeased.

The four figures joining the line are The Joker, Superman, Batman and Harley Quinn, each featuring the unmistakable quality of DC Essentials but with an added undead twist.

In DCeased, "A mysterious techno-virus is released on Earth, infecting 600 million people and turning them instantly into violent, monstrous engines of destruction. The heroes of the DCU are caught completely unprepared for a pandemic of this magnitude and struggle to save their loved ones first... but what happens to the World’s Greatest Heroes if the world ends?"

The new DCeased DC Essentials figures and much more will be the focal point of New York Comic Con's DC Collectibles panel on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 1:45 p.m. in Room 1A21, featuring Greg Cupullo, Paul Harding, Jean St. Jean and DC Collectibles Creative Director Jim Fletcher.
