One of the most popular villains in comic book history and the villain of Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight returns to the pages of Batman this fall. The joker is a staple villain of the industry and very well known for fans and non-fans alike. Well it seems that he had been missing from comics since Detective Comics #1 debuted last fall in DC Comics’ new 52 reboot of their entire line where 52 core book were restarted at #1. That all changes when the Joker makes his triumphant return in Batman #13. The book’s writer Scott Snyder had this to say:
“Joker is my favorite villain of all time,” Snyder told THE SOURCE. “Not just in comics. In everything – film, books, TV. He’s the greatest, hands down. So this story is something extremely important and personal to me – something I’ve been building in my head ever since I started working in Gotham. 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. Greg’s sketches literally gave me chills. 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.”
Look at that. Don’t tell me you’re not interested after seeing that.
