Greg Capullo, Forever Evil, Batman: Arkham City and George Pérez are some of the key draws in the DC Collectibles solicitations for January, with a number of the items serving as the first chance fans have had to pick them up since they appeared as San Diego Comic-Con exclusives this past summer. New Batman, Talon, Riddler and Nightwing action figures based on Capullo's artwork are slated to roll out in April and May as part of DCC's 6.75" Designer Action Figures line. Those aren't the only 6.75" scale action figures, though, with contemporary versions of Deathstorm and Bizarro coming as part of the Forever Evil line, an Arkham City Two-Face, and an Arrow Oliver Queen/Deathstroke two-pack all set to arrive in April. On the statue front, fans will be able to pick up an 8.5" Wonder Woman statue based on Pérez's iconic take on the Amazon, plus a 10" Riddler statue based on the character's Arkham City appearance.

The thing is, while this definitely isn't the first time the villains have stepped into the spotlight, it's not even the first time we've gotten a comic called Joker #1.
That happened way back in 1975, when somebody at DC figured that it was a good idea to give the Clown Prince of Crime his own ongoing series that managed to last a mere nine issues -- and it's actually even stranger than it sounds.

Diesel recently released what they call the "Frankenwatch," a timepiece that combines the faces of two watches to make one "Freak of Nature," complete with a half-leather, half-metal wristband. As this is, literally, a "Two-Face" watch, it is hard not to make the obvious comparison:
