What’s New In The New 52: The Joker

This September, The Joker will once again get the last laugh.

During Villains Month, witness an untold tale of The Joker that takes place before any of the #1 issues in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. Written by Andy Kubert and illustrated by Andy Clarke, this unique one-shot will not only hint at a possible origin for The Joker, but will also feature the origin of a classic Batman villain who folks might not suspect as having ties to the Clown Prince of Crime.

Above, check out Clarke’s design for The Joker.

Happy 4th of July!

Exclusive Preview of DETECTIVE COMICS #19

Ever since its debut in 1937, DETECTIVE COMICS has been a staple of the DC Universe.

Grant Morrison on his Legendary BATMAN Run

"Little did I suspect when I accepted the BATMAN writing assignment back in 2006 that I’d wind up spending the next six years writing the longest continued comic story I’ve ever attempted. I thought I’d said most of what I had to say about the character with Arkham Asylum, Gothic, and Batman’s appearances in JLA. Clearly, I was wrong.  

THIS JUST HAPPENED: The Robins see the Bat Symbol

While many have gone by the moniker of Robin, these protégés of the Dark Knight are just as mesmerized by the hope and justice the symbol of the bat represents as are the rest of the citizens of Gotham City.


In the back-up story in BATMAN #0, writer James Tynion IV (TALON) and artist Andy Clarke (BATMAN AND ROBIN) travel five years back in time and show how various characters react to seeing the iconic Bat Symbol illuminate the night sky for the very first time.
