Two-Face Makes His Gnarly Debut in Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai Batman: Rogues Gallery

While Square Enix didn't have a tremendous amount of new figures and collectibles on display at San Diego Comic-Con this year, the company did unveil a new wave of figures for its DC Comics Variant line. Originally filled with the heroes and villains of the DCU in designs that filtered them through Square's trademark Play Arts style, this latest wave took things to a whole new level.

Dubbed Batman: Rogues Gallery, this latest twist on the Dark Knight gives us a glimpse at what he'd look like if some of Batman's greatest enemies donned the cape and cowl instead. It's a line that lets Square's design team really go wild, which you can clearly see with the first figure in the wave, Two-Face.

Start Saving Your Money for Prime 1 Studio’s Arkham Knight Two-Face Statue

Sideshow Collectibles
Sideshow Collectibles

I'll give Prime 1 Studio credit. They are going all in on the Batman: Arkham Knight goods, and if you're a fan of that game and Rocksteady's designs for the Batman Universe, Prime 1 is leaving no stones unturned. DC Collectibles' efforts in the Arkham game arena were solid, but by working at such a large scale, Prime 1 is able to capture detail and likeness that you just can't get with smaller, more consumer friendly products.

I mean, where else would you be able to get a statue of Harvey Dent where you could practically taste the rotten flesh and smell the burnt clothing of his Arkham universe incarnation. We've seen a lot of gnarly Two-Face figures and collectibles over the years, but this statue takes things to a whole new level of disgustingly cool detail.

Funko’s Impopsters Line Re-imagines Batman’s Rogues as the Dark Knight

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about Funko's latest Pop figure line, Impopsters (I'm also not sure about that brand name, but what do I know?). On one hand, putting some (slightly) new spins on characters that have been around for decades is cool, and it lets Funko get a little creative with the standard form bodies they've been using to create hundreds and hundreds of collectibles. But I'm also not wild about just Batmanning the Dark Knight's rogues gallery. The concept certainly makes sense though. People love Batman and his big bads, so why not combine them into one thing?

Impopsters is just the latest in a long line of Funko's attempts to shake up the game with miniature, budget vinyl collectibles. While I wonder if this was the series of collectibles Funko alluded to in the most recent Marvel Collector Corps, I'm definitely wondering what the Marvel versions of these are going to look like. Oh, that's right. Impopsters won't just be limited this Batman series. Funko apparently has designs on the rest of the DCU and Marvel Comics, too.

Greg Capullo’s Two-Face Figure Finally Rears His Ugly Head, and It’s Awesome [Review]

DC Collectibles Designer Series Greg Capullo Two-Face

It's hard to believe that it's been more than a year since we last saw any figures in the Greg Capullo DC Collectibles Designer Series. DC Collectibles has been busy with a number of Batman-related releases, as well as the Icon series and other artists in the Designer Series line, but after getting three waves in a year, the stark silence on the Capullo figures was a bit disheartening.

Though hardly the first figures produced in-house at DC to replicate the style of an artist currently at the employ of the comic publisher, the Capullo Designer Series featured some bold imaginings that captured the look and feel of the top-selling comic book in DC's stable. There was a strong connection between the figures and book, and it was startling to see just how well DC Collectibles' Jonathan Matthews was able to bring Capullo's linework to life.

Try Not to be Super-Grossed Out By Tweeterhead’s Classic Two-Face Statue

Tweeterhead
Tweeterhead

I'm a grown man who writes about toys, games and comics on the Internet, so when I tell you this Two-Face statue makes me want to throw up, you know I mean it as a compliment. Tweeterhead's latest Batman Classic statue is a fairly spot-on rendering of the man formerly known as Harvey Dent from the Dick Sprang era. As gnarly as Two-Face's design has gotten over the years, there's something to be said for how gag reflex-inducing this incarnation still is all these decades later.

Now, you might be thinking this Two-Face isn't actually that bad-looking. Why on Earth would this version be more terrifying to look at than the Aaron Eckhart version from The Dark Knight, or the version from the Batman and Two-Face storyline? Well, I'll tell you. It's all about trypophobia. The paint app on this Two-Face's scarred eye is eerily reminiscent of the louts seed head, which is commonly used to give people with trypophobia the heebie-jeebies. Two-Face is already repulsive enough, but this version's eye just keeps staring at me, giving me the immediate urge to look away. It's not often you can say that about a character design from the '50s, so good job, Tweeterhead.

Best Cosplay Ever (This Week): Two-Face, Lupin, The Rocketeer, Luke Cage & Iron Fist And More

Untitled-1

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Len Wein On Harlan Ellison, Garcia-Lopez And ‘Batman ’66: The Lost Episode’ [Interview]

Untitled-1

On November 19, DC Comics will release Batman '66: The Lost Episode, a bookshelf-format one-shot by writer Len Wein and penciller José Luis Garcia-López -- superhero comics legends, both -- adapting a previously-unknown story that Harlan Ellison wrote for the classic Adam West and Burt Ward TV show: the introduction of Two-Face. The project is a very special companion to DC's popular and critically acclaimed digital-first Batman '66 series. In addition to its prestigious veteran storytellers, the book also features inking by Joe Prado, colors by Alex Sinclair and cover art by Alex Ross, all industry leaders in their disciplines.
At New York Comic Con this past weekend, we had the opportunity to sit down with Wein and discuss the origin of the project, his friendship with Ellison, and the experience of adapting an unfilmed television episode into the comic book format.
