2013 is going to be an epic year for Superman – and we know two reasons why:
Scott Snyder and Jim Lee.
The superstar creative team will join forces for the first time to launch a new Superman title that promises to elevate the already high-flying hero to new heights and force him to face off against foes familiar and new, as only two of the top industry talents can.
Happy Wednesday, folks. Still sipping that cup of coffee? Hoping to get an extra 15 minutes of sleep? Today’s not the day.
This Wednesday, the Joker returns.
But you should know that already, right? If not, here are the basics: The mega-talented BATMAN creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo are kicking off “Death of the Family” this week, a crossover affecting the entire Bat-Family and heralding the return of Batman’s main nemesis, the Joker. That’s right – the masterminds behind “The Court of Owls” and so much more bring in the Clown Prince of Crime. Can you say “Instant Batman Classic”?
“Why do we have to wait until Wednesday, though?”
Just in time for New York Comic Con, the Joker will make his explosive return to Gotham City next Wednesday when BATMAN #13 hits stores.
USA TODAY spoke with BATMAN series writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo about “Death of the Family,” the Joker-centric crossover that will be hitting the Bat titles beginning this month.
Stop us if you've heard this one: a clown cuts off his face and disappears from the spotlight for a year before coming back and wrecking all sorts of murder and mayhem on the lives of the entire Bat-Family with a frightful gusto and panache that would make even Nicolas Cage say, "Hey dude, that's pretty crazy."
No? Well, boy, are we about to put a smile on your face.
