Power Girl as drawn by Adam Hughes comes to tangible life in this new DC Direct 12-inch statue from their Cover Girls of the DC Universe (see the whole collection of DC statues and collectibles here). The nuances of his art (originally for the cover of POWER GIRL #2) are really impressively rendered here, from the curves of the fabric in her cape to the arches in her dark eyebrows and the way her hair moves in the wind. A beautiful piece by one of the most talented artists around. She’s available for pre-order now and will be shipping in September, so be ready if you want to snag this one!
And continuing with the Hughes/DC stuff, November brings another of the DC Universe’s women when a new Batgirl statue arrives. Shown untangling her grappling hook with all the heroism of a 50s pin-up, she’s not exactly the brash, bold Power Girl above, nor is she much of a dignified entry to the Bat-family. Frankly, I’d like to see a statue of Batman immortalised with a coquettish look and a fouled-up tool from his utility belt, but I think I’ll have to wait on that. For now, here’s a look at the 12-inch statue!
