The Joker: its key role on Art Toy Culture
It’s not a joke! There are a lot of Joker pieces!
Everybody knows The Joker. He is the clownish supervillain in the American comic books published by DC Comics and Batman animation series and films.
The Joker was created in 1940 and since then he has been the most famous antagonist of the bat superhero. The character adaptations are limitless and he has appeared in multiple formats and represented by numerous actors such as Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Jared Leto or the magnificent Joaquin Phoenix. Of course, none of them has been an exception on not getting a 3D version sometimes more accurate and sometimes more imaginative.
The amazing amount of art toys and collectibles based on this character is absolutely stunning and you are able to get some of them at our Kaneda Toys shop.
