Preview of THE JOKER: DEATH OF THE FAMILY

Every legendary hero has an opposite number. The other side of the coin. The darkness to their light. These reflections of evil, death and menace bring out the best in our champions – if they can survive the experience.

But none compare to The Joker – the deadliest, most frightening villain ever to grace the comic book page.

The Joker vs Clark Kent

SUPERMAN/BATMAN comes to a close as the Joker attempts to kill his second reporter: Clark Kent. Cautious not to reveal his true identity, Clark must defend himself without making his superhuman strength obvious. His only hope in doing this successfully? The Dark Knight.

SUPERMAN/BATMAN #87, by Joshua Hale Fialkov and Tomas Giorello, hits stores tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Clark Kent is assigned to finish the piece. But will Superman really reveal who Batman is to the world? And furthermore, does taking over this assignment mean that Clark Kent is the killer’s next victim?
