Batman has finally defeated the Court of Owls, but he can’t breath easy just yet. An old face is returning in the pages of Batman #13 as Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion kick off a new storyline called Death of the Family starring The Joker.
The announcement has this brutal teaser. The Joker was last seen in Detective Comic, where he voluntarily let the Dollmaker carve off his face while in Arkham Asylum. Snyder talks about the return:
Joker is my favorite villain of all time. 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.
