Previews World interview with DC Collectibles Executive Creative Director Jim Fletcher:

Quote:
WHAT PRODUCTS ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT FOR MAY?

Iím really excited for the launch of JoŽlle Jonesí DC Cover Girls statue series. The line is one of our longest running and best-selling lines and JoŽlle has been a great addition. We canít wait for her Supergirl design to join the already released Harley Quinn statue this month.

CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE DESIGN PROCESS FOR THE COVER GIRL STATUES?

The steps are more or less the same for all of our statues.

We ask for 2-3 rough concepts and narrow it down to the final piece that we plan to sculpt. We give the illustrators a good amount of freedom when it comes to the pose and basic attitude of the character. One of the design teamís jobs early on is to make sure the pose is compelling, while also being able to produce it overseas. This takes into consideration a lot of factors, including some basic costing and what type of materials that will have to be used in production. We then move ahead to sculpting, choosing a sculptor whoís style we think will match the artwork the best. Jack Mathews has been our amazing sculptor of note on most of this line to date, including JoŽllesí work. We bring the artists into the art direction process a few times along the way, so they can see where the piece is going. After itís painted, we send a photo of the final piece to the artist to make sure we all on the same page, since it has their name on it!

Cover Girls has been a great experience with each artist that works on the line as everyone from Adam Hughes, to Stanley Lau and now JoŽlle Jones has their own defining vision of DCís iconic characters.

WHAT WAS IT LIKE WORKING WITH JOňLLE JONES?

This is our first collaboration with JoŽlle and weíre thrilled to work with her on this new project. JoŽlle is an amazing artist and all of her concept designs have been fantastic. There is a ton of movement and grace in all her sketches that transform well in 3-D form, so itís really been a fun process.

Something must be happening in the supply chain. In addition to Joelle Jones Supergirl, neither BBTS nor Ent Earth have received Bombshells Jessica Cruz yet.

Entertainment Earth got their shipment of Joelle Jones Supergirl, but still no Bombshells Jessica Cruz. BBTS doesn't have either statue in stock.

Dunno why, but Amazon is hiding the Joelle Jones Supergirl statue. You can find it only if you use an external search engine.

I have to admit it is a very nice statue. I do not like the base with Joelle's name on it though. I think the base would have been fine it it was just black with the blue circle around it and that would have been it.

The first proto for Harley Quinn didn't have Jones's sig on the base.
