Back in October we were thrilled to find out there would be a live stream unboxing with Gerard for his Batman and Joker black and white statues. Unfortunately, due to work, Gerard couldn’t make the event which DC Collectibles was able to film in his absence anyway.
Live Unboxing! Batman Black & White Statues by Gerard Way
Posted by DC Collectibles on Thursday, October 11, 2018
We believe Gerard was unable to attend the unboxing due to working on music since later in the evening Lola posted the video below and shortly after we started receiving news of upcoming music!
To make it up to us when the statues were released Gerard did an unboxing with us via pictures on his instagram!

What a trip! Into Gotham! The relationship I have shared with @dccomics has been nothing short of amazing, and today it hit a new height. When I was drawing the reimagined Batman characters as model sheets, I never dreamed they’d be turned into statues. Every day I think about how lucky and blessed I am to be able to make art that people support, and every day there is something (well, multiple things) to remind me of that. Today, it’s these Batman and Joker statues produced by DC Collectibles, whose amazing and talented artists it was a pleasure to work with. I believe this means they are available now! They are stunning in person. For those that don’t know, I reimagined Batman, Robin, and their villains for a series I was working on called Kingdom of The Mad. It never seemed the right time in my life to write the book, as I feel you need to be in a very specific headspace to write Batman, but I am warming up to it again, and seeing these drawings brought to life as statues definitely inspired and helped. Maybe this can happen soon? It’s definitely on my bucket list. I hope you enjoy these. They were fun to unbox and I had the perfect place for them on my shelf in the office. Special thanks to DC and the collectibles team for making this happen. Take care and talk soon. #batman #joker #dccollectibles #dccomics #gotham #batmanblackandwhite #KingdomofTheMad #batmanandrobin #Gotham
The statues are available from DC Collectibles via most places comics are sold for around $80 each, so definitely ask your comic book shop about them. They are limited edition – only 5,000 will ever be created – so be sure to get in on these while they’re still available!
