GRAPEVINE, Texas, Oct. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- October is the month when it’s “good to be bad”. With Halloween around the corner, it’s not surprising to see wanna-be villains come to life unleashing their complex schemes to rule the world. To celebrate the great Super-Villains of Gotham City, GameStop and BioWorld and with the help of renowned DC comic book artist Jim Lee, have created the first-of-its-kind villain product line, just in time for the sinister month of October.
In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer and DC, GameStop is featuring its exclusive DC Collection by Jim Lee Super-Villain Capsule – The Joker (Hush) that released on National Villains Day, October 15 for $24.99. This GameStop exclusive Funko POP! showcases the infamous Joker with his clown-like appearance and calculating grin, capturing the comic-book likeness of one of Gotham City’s master criminals.
“Most people admit to wanting to be the hero in a comic book story, but who hasn’t also fantasized about being the villain at one time or another, too? Villains can be cool characters, too,” said Janet Bareis, senior vice president of Collectibles for GameStop. “Pop culture products like the GameStop DC Super- Villains product line appeal to our customer’s interests, passions for having fun and frankly, their inner geekiness.”
Other products within the exclusive villain’s product line include:
