James Shoop, sculptor of DC Direct items including the popular JLA ACTION FIGURES and the upcoming GREEN LANTERN ACTION FIGURES, has signed a 2-year exclusive contract with DC Comics.
“I’ve been working for DC on and off for about 11 years, and it’s always been a fantastic relationship,” says Shoop. “They’ve been keeping me consistently busy, which is the goal. It’s a dream job!”
"DC Direct is very fortunate to have James join our pool of exclusive sculptors,” says Georg Brewer, DC’s VP — Design & Retail Product Development. “His long history of exemplary work with DC Direct and the Warner Bros. Studio Stores shows his diversity as an artistic talent. I look forward to seeing what else he can accomplish with Senior Art Director Jim Fletcher, who I am sure will keep his sculpting tools busy."
