Sideshow has partnered with Aspen Comics to create a new Premium Format Figure based on Aspen Matthews from the company's flagship series Fathom.
Created by the late Michael Turner, the character is a marine biologist who discovers she has fantastical aquatic powers that tie into her mysterious past. Aspen first appeared in the Fathom Preview from Top Cow in 1998 and was there until 2002 when Turner left to start his own company. Next year will be her 20th anniversary.
We have a preview image, but the statue won't be revealed in full until the convention this weekend. It's described as being a museum quality collectible mixing-media on the sculpted piece with painted elements, semi-translucent resins and fabric parts. More details can be found at sideshow.com. There will also be a limited edition Aspen premium art print by artist Ian MacDonald. It will also be on display at the convention.
"Aspen Comics is thrilled to be in collaboration with Sideshow to bring our fans a new and exciting take on our flagship property, Michael Turner's Fathom. The extremely talented folks at Sideshow have exceeded our wildest expectations with this new Aspen Matthews statue, and we cannot wait for fans to behold this amazing new work of art!"
– Frank Mastromauro, Aspen Co-Owner/President
The Aspen Matthews Premium Format Figure will be shown to the public for the very first time at Sideshow's booth (#1912) at New York Comic Con, October 5th-8th.
