New Batman And Joker B&W Statues Sprang From DC Collectibles

Detective_Comics_180_Jokers_Millions_coverContinuing their 75th anniversary celebration of Batman, DC Collectibles has announced two new Batman Black and White statues based on the art work of Dick Sprang. Sprang began drawing the Dark Knight's adventures in 1943 but as was the case he was a ghost artist and credit went to Bob Kane. In 1955 he replaced Curt Swan as the regular artist for the Superman/Batman stories in World's Finest until his retirement in 1963.

One off the stories Spran drew, Joker's Millions, was adapted as an episode of Batman: The Animated Series.

The Sprang statues are a throwback to a lighter time for the Caped Crusader and the Clown Prince of Crime. The statues were sculpted by Tony Cipriano and Josh Sutton. Both statues will be limited to 5,200 each, will be priced at $79.95 and will be in stores in December 2014… just in time for Christmas for your favorite Batman fan.
