Batman #13



He’s back!  You never really thought he was gone for good did you?

I’m talking about Batman’s number one nemesis-the Joker! The Clown Prince of Crime returns, sans face, to reunite with Batman in his sick game of tit for tat.  In Batman #13, from DC Comics, artist Greg Capullo and writer Scott Snyder introduce a brand new Joker-one even more vicious, psychotic and brilliant than before.

Determined to make his comeback an event the Joker begins to systematically eliminate those around Batman and Commissioner Gordon in a cat and mouse game where he reenacts his first encounters with both men including mirroring his first kill, the first use of his Joker toxin and his first fatal meeting with the Batman.

Everyone is on edge as the Joker seems to know everything about then including Batman’s secret identity!  Harley Quinn returns, in a new costume, and she joins her former clown paramour in a dangerous game of chemical warfare with Batman.  Don’t miss it!
