BATMAN Editor Mike Marts on some interesting JOKER’S ASYLUM...

JA2R_Cv1.indd Hey--for those of you who don’t already know--the first issue of our new JOKER’S ASYLUM event hits stands this week. JOKER’S ASYLUM is a group of five one-shoots focusing on Batman’s rogues gallery, each written and drawn by a different creative team. This time around we’re featuring stories on HARLEY QUINN, CLAYFACE, MAD HATTER, KILLER CROC, and of course… THE RIDDLER. First out of the gate is a tale about Edward Nigma, written by Peter Calloway (a writer from the hit TV show Brothers & Sisters) with amazing artwork by Andres Guinaldo and Raul Fernandez (GOTHAM CITY SIRENS). With the Riddler taking center stage in this one-shot, I’m sure it will come as no surprise that the story revolves around…well, a riddle. But here’s some free advice, fans…as a reader, I wouldn’t stop at being satisfied with just the surface-level puzzle that Edward Nigma attempts to resolve… Try to dig a little deeper…maybe there’s an extra layer or two to the story. And I know spring is nearly over, but maybe there’ are a few Easter eggs to discover… Report back here, let us know what you find…
