Teaser For Joker’s Return

He’s Baaaaaack

DC announced that Batman’s long time arch-nemesis will make his big return in Batman #13. The creative team of Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion will bring back the Clown Prince of Crime in t this October’s Death of the Family storyline.

According to DC’s blog, “The Joker will come out of the dark in a horrifying, unnerving, and huge way. And the grave consequences of his reemergence will be felt by not only the Bat-family, but by all of Gotham City.”

Snyder admits that the Joker is his all-time favorite character, adding that “Basically, this is my big exploration of the Joker, my ARKHAM ASYLUM or THE KILLING JOKE, only bigger in scope. Bottom line: it’s the biggest, baddest, most shocking Joker story I could tell. This is Joker completely unleashed. He has been away for a full year planning this revenge, watching, plotting, setting things up. And now he’s back. He has his traps set, his knives sharpened… And wait ’til you see him.”

“Point blank: This is Joker like you’ve never seen him before. He has a mission. He has a secret. And he has a serious axe to grind with Batman. It isn’t going to be pretty, but it’s going to be a wild ride. Thanks for taking it with us.”

Capullo added, “I gotta tell you, after hearing what the story is about, this isn’t a dream come true. It’s a nightmare! A macabre and bloody, flesh crawling nightmare. We hope you’ll have the nerve to face what’s coming. Warning: It ain’t for the faint of heart!”

Batman #13 hits the shelves on October 10th.
