Italian company Montegrappa has been manufacturing luxury writing instruments for more than a century, which presumably has merely been build-up to this point: the release of the DC Comics Heroes & Villains series of pens.
Inspired by the success of its Batman collection, this set boasts Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, The Penguin and, of course, the Dark Knight, offered as fountain, rollerball and ballpoint pens.
As you can see from the images above and below, each features colors and details specific to the character. For instance, the Green Lantern pen has his emblem on the cap, and Hal Jordan in an action pose on the pocket clip.
Before you get too excited, be warned: These aren't stocking-stuffers; you'll have to shell out $395 for a ballpoint, $435 for a rollerball or $475 for a fountain pen. However, IGN has a glowing review of one of the pens that may lead you to break open your penny bank.
