FORCES HEADS TO SIN CITY!
Collectible Statue to be Created.
June 22, 2004, Runnemede, NJ – Dynamic
Forces, Inc. today announced a new statue based on Frank Miller’s
acclaimed comic-book series Sin City!
The statue – planned for a Christmas
2004 release, features the popular Marv character as sculpted
by William Paquet and will be overseen by Miller. This will
be the first new Sin City product Dynamic Forces will have
released since Dynamic's Family Values Exclusive Cover Edition.
“We look forward in helping to bring
the best-known character of Sin City to life -- especially
so close to the big-screen version of Frank’s powerful
creation,” said Nick Barrucci, President of Dynamic
Forces, Inc. Barrucci was referring to the currently filming
"Frank Miller's Sin City" feature film, starring,
among others, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Maria Bello, Benicio
Del Toro, and Jessica Alba and co-directed by Miller and Robert
Rodriguez. Barrucci continued: “I’ve had the privilege
of seeing William’s sculpt of Marv, and it's marvelous!
It is truly a masterpiece! This piece is only the beginning
of Dynamic's Sin City line!” "We've always prided
ourselves on our business relationship with Frank, but we're
particularly honored that he – and William – have
entrusted us to bring this version of Marv to the market."
Miller expressed his enthusiasm for Paquet's
rendition of his character Marv: "This was never an assignment
for William. This wasn't a job somebody handed him. This statue
bugged him until he had to let it out. It's gorgeous, and
inspired. Very cool."
William Paquet, a self-taught sculptor, has
worked full-time as freelance artist for the past 13 years
and was hired for his first DC Comics project in 1994. The
statues Paquet has sculpted for DC Direct (over 40 in all)
include: Nightwing, Dark Knight Returns, Joker, Spectre, Simon
Bisley’s Batman, The Dark Winter's Knight Snow Globe,
and the new Lobo statue. He first worked with Frank Miller
on the 10th anniversary Dark Knight Returns Statue, and won
the "Wizard Fan Award" for that figure.
