Ready You Wallets for Joker

Pre-Order on Amazon and Save

I caught this interview on Wizard’s website and find myself all kinds of giddy. I’ve been on a Batman kick ever since I watched The Dark Knight and I’ve been collecting as many trades as I can. Then I find that DC will be releasing an original hardcover story written by Brian Azzarello (Eisner award-winner for 100 Bullets, Eisner nominee for Hellblazer, Batman: Broken City, Superman: For Tomorrow, and other great stories). Further more, it is being illustrated by Lee Bermejo (an amazing artist who is the regular cover artist for Hellblazer) and Mick Gray. Judging from the sample artwork I have seen, it is going to be feakin’ amazing.

DC’s website offers this synopsis of what to expect from the story:

After yet another stint in Arkham Asylum, The Joker finds “his city” divided among mobsters and costumed villains. Not content to settle for a piece of the pie, The Joker vows to take back the whole damn enchilada by any means necessary. Look for appearances by a slew of Gotham’s most wanted, including gritty takes on Two-Face, Riddler, Killer Croc, Penguin, Harley Quinn and even Batman!

Personally, I can’t wait and there will be an extra twenty bucks missing from my paycheck on October 22nd. Oh, and the scarring on the mouth of the “Clown Price of Crime,” in case you’re wondering, was included in the story before The Dark Knight ever hit movie screens.
