From a Press Release at the DC Blog today, it was announced that Syfy’s popular unscripted series, Face Off, will have an infusion of super powers in the form of DC Entertainment’s Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, along with six of DC’s most respected artists. In the hit competition show’s new episode airing Tuesday, January 22at 9 p.m. ET/PT, a group of special effects make-up artists will be challenged to create their own Super Heroes.
Filmed in the midst of San Diego Comic-Con 2012, each contestant was paired with a DC Entertainment artist to receive creative input and assistance with their designs. An outstanding array of talent participated in the process including Jim Lee, Mark Buckingham (FABLES), Cliff Chiang (WONDER WOMAN), Tony S. Daniel (ACTION COMICS), David Finch (BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT), Nicola Scott (EARTH 2) and J.H. Williams, III (BATWOMAN).
In the Super Hero episode of Face Off, not only will the contestants battle to continue on in the competition, but the winning design will also be featured in the January 30th release of JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #16, giving the winner a chance to have their work exposed to a broad DC Entertainment audience.
