Lee Bermejo’s Batman Damned Statue in DC Comics April 2019 Solicits… But No You Can’t See ‘It’

Bleeding Cool ran all the solicitations for DC Comics April 2019 over the weekend, at least for the comics and collections. But the toys/statues/merchandise solicits have only just been revealed now…

And, yes, we note that this includes a Batman Damned statue based on the artwork of Lee Bermejo. and sculpted by Jean St. Jean. And yes, we’ve looked, but no we can’t see ‘it’. Bermejo has designed a classic, graceful Batman with a lot of shadow, cloak and suggestion.

Unlike the one based on Marc Silvestri’s artwork sculpted by Neobauhaus, who lets it all just hang out there.

One might call that the Basic Instinct Batman, right?

Here are the rest of the toy/statue/merchandise solicitations…
