Here at DC, we love reading and we love super heroes. So it was only a matter of time before we combined the two into an amazing set of collectibles.
In our latest DC Collectibles Spotlight, we talk with Joe Menna, the talented sculptor behind some of our amazing deluxe action figures, including Arkham City Solomon Grundy and Armored Suit Lex Luthor.
If you’re looking for another DC Collectible Close-Up, we have you…covered!
The DC Comics Cover Girls line of statues has been running strong for many years, most recently based on the gorgeous designs of Stanley “Artgerm” Lau. Launching back in August 2013 with Batgirl, we’ve since brought you Lau’s distinct take on Supergirl, Poison Ivy, Katana, Mera and more. Now, we’re very pleased to give you a close look at our newest of Stanley’s Cover Girls—Vixen.
Even if you don’t know his name, if you’re a fan of DC Comics or Collectibles, you’re pretty familiar with the work of our latest spotlight artist. Heck, if you’ve so much as stepped into a comic shop or onto the floor of a comic convention at least once this past year, you’ve likely come across the distinct interpretations of DC Comics heroines reimagined in the style of classic pinup art that we call the DC Comics Bombshells.
When you think of the hundreds of heroes and villains that populate the pages of DC comic books, “cute” probably isn’t the first word to come to mind.

It's time for another DC Collectibles Spotlight! Sculptor Jack Mathews is perhaps best known for his work in our DC Comics Cover Girls line, but he’s also sculpted many of the action figures in our ever popular DC Comics – The New 52 line. It’s clear Jack enjoys his work—it’s visible in the final product!—but if you’re curious about what else he enjoys, read on…
When we announced The New 52 back in 2012, the focus was understandably on the comics. Fifty-two first issues is an impressive feat. But it didn’t take long for The New 52 to permeate into other areas of the business, like DC Collectibles. After all, we love reading and watching super heroes fight, but we’re not ashamed to admit that we still like making them fight and there’s no better way to do that than with a nice set of action figures. (You could do it with our statues as well, but we REALLY don’t recommend that. Seriously, don’t.
