In our latest DC Collectibles Artist Spotlight, we speak with Irene Matar, the brilliant sculptor of our eagerly awaited Batman: The Animated Series action figures. Irene is an amazing talent and considering how popular this line is proving to be, we suspect you’ll be seeing her work in comic and specialty stores—and hopefully in your own collections—for some time to come.
Hi DC Collectors and Facebook fans! Welcome to the “100K Likes” edition of Ask DC Collectibles, our semi-regular question and answer feature here on DCComics.com. A week ago, we asked for your DC Collectibles questions and you responded by posting over 100 questions and comments on our Facebook page. That’s a lot to try and cover, but we love a good challenge. Let’s get to it!
TIMELINE OF PRODUCTION
By now, most fans of Batman and exciting animation have seen the two era-spanning shorts produced by Bruce Timm and WB Animation in celebration of the Dark Knight’s 75th anniversary. We thought it would be fun and enlightening to sit down with Kevin Conroy for an interview about these two unique projects. Only, in staying true to the spirit of the shorts, we're keeping the interview brief. Three questions—one for each minute of animation!
Earlier this year, DC Collectibles announced that they would be releasing a new line of action figures based on the highly influential and almost universally beloved Batman: The Animated Series. Fans were excited, and so were we. In fact, after we heard the news, we held an entire weeklong event here on DCComics.com to celebrate the series.
All this month on DCComics.com we're celebrating the 75th Anniversary of one of the DC Universe's... no, all of comics... no, all of FICTION's most popular and recognizable characters: the Dark Knight himself, Batman!
It seems like just yesterday that billionaire Bruce Wayne made the totally sane and reasonable decision to avenge his parents' deaths by dressing up as a giant bat and combating the criminals of Gotham City.
You guys ask some good questions. You know that, right? Whether it’s in person at conventions, on the DC Collectibles Facebook page, or even right here on DCComics.com, you’re never afraid to speak up. With so many great new lines of DC Collectibles on the horizon, and so many cool statues and action figures in stores now, it’s hardly surprising that the level of questions we’ve been getting has been pretty high.
The Man of Steel and the Dark Knight. They're two of the most well-known, popular, and instantly recognizable super heroes in all of fiction. They both strive to uphold justice. They both take on dangerous criminals and super-powered madmen. They both serve on the legendary Justice League. Separately, they're two of the world's greatest super heroes. Together, they're the World's Finest.
Last Friday, as part of our week-long “Batman: An Animated Celebration,” we offered fans a chance to win the complete Batman: The Animated Series on DVD. All they had to do was snap a photo of themselves recreating the iconic Batman: The Animated Series logo pose.
All week long we’ve been celebrating the ever popular Batman: The Animated Series here on DCComics.com.
