Preview Of Batman #13: Death Of The Family


As everyone knows by now, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo are bringing the Joker back in a big way next week (October 10th) in Batman #13. Death of the Family’s main story will take place in the pages of Batman, but all the bat books will take part. USA Today has a chilling preview to the main event. Snyder had a few words on the story as well:

The Joker is coming and saying, ‘Remember all these awesome times we had together,’ which are obviously not awesome at all for Batman, but in the Joker’s mind are these incredibly loving and terrific encounters over the years. He believes he often brings the worst news of Batman’s own heart to him in the form of these terrible nightmares he has to fight. If that’s his purpose, then he sees this family in a lot of ways as interlopers and people who make his idol, his Bat-king, weak.

Scott Snyder has said on Twitter that the Joker face die-cut is the main cover and the Joker mirror cover will be the variant. The Batman cowled Joker is a NY Comic Con exclusive.
