The DC Comics Variant Play Arts KAI line announces its latest collection: the
BATMAN™: Rogues Gallery series! This mashup of Batman's classic silhouette with
the beloved villains of his Rogues Gallery results in a never-before-seen design
collaboration - East meets West, Good meets Evil.
The Joker, Batman's greatest and most evil villain, enters
the Rogues Gallery series!
A tattered straitjacket is erratically adorned with dynamite,
a flower, cans of pepper spray, and an alarm clock. Combined with his playing
cards and a pistol with a flag as interchangeable parts, this ensemble shows the
character's madness, oozing from within.
The pale skin and bloodshot eyes accentuate his eerie
quality, while his trademark purple and green lend dark shadows to his coloring.
The bat mark roughly painted on his chest can almost be construed as a laughing
mouth. It seems to make a mockery of Batman, offering a glimpse into how The
Joker's twisted mind ticks.
Preorders are welcome to ship on or around January 30, 2017.
