DC Collectibles Panel

DC Collectibles announced 2 new statue lines (Superman Metallic & Bombshells) and showcased upcoming items for 2013 in the DC Booth and at the Collectibles Panel on Thursday 10/11. My friend ans Master Sculptor Jean St. Jean was on of the guests along with artist Lee Bermejo, artist/co-publisher Jim Lee, other sculptors, and DC product managers. Jean has worked with Bermejo several times creating statues based on Bermajo's work (Batman B&W, Before Watchmen Rorschach, and now Superman) and they discussed how they felt their detail filled 3d and 2d styles were were well matched. It was also very interesting to hear from both Bermajo and Jim Lee how working on statue designs differed from drawing comic art - that they had to think more realistically, and more three dimensionally, and Jim Lee even joked he sometimes even uses the finished statues as drawing reference. While what I've shared here are only my biased favorites, everything they presented was appealing and very well done. Items will be available late 2012 through 2013 at Comic Shops and the online DC Collectibles Shop.
