Welcome to AFJ's 31 Days of Horror Figures 2019. For the month of October, we will be spotlighting the very best of the macabre, bizarre, monstrous, and villainous action figures the industry has to offer. There will be both old and new figures here and perhaps even a significance to why we picked that figure for that day (and perhaps not). This is NOT a ranking list, just full-blown horror fun for the greatest month of the year.
Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's "Batman: The Long Halloween" has become one of the seminal comic books of the modern ear. It has even spawned a sequel. A classic and perennial read by the AFJ staff. Imagine our delight when the word started to circulate that Kevin Smith's script for Matt Reeves' upcoming take on The Dark Knight.
Today we celebrate the new Joker film (out October 4th) and DC Direct's 2008 release fo the Joker in the likeness from the comic. It is chilling and cold and much like its inspiration is difficult to acquire. With the aforementioned news above, expect to pay a pretty penny for this figure. And yes, we are aware that he comes with a Santa hat. Happy Halloween!
Check out the fan-made trailer for the motion comic of "The Long Halloween" below. See AFJ's full list of Halloween 2019 figures as it evolves HERE.
