This October, there are more trials and tribulations than tricks and treats in store for Batman and Gotham City in Batman #100, Batman #101, and Detective Comics #1028! As his ferocious battle with the Clown Prince of Crime comes to an end, there are more questions than answers ahead for Gotham’s guardian (including a completely unexpected guest star).
Here’s an early reveal of covers and art from some must-have Bat-books coming your way in October.
In this extra-sized finale issue, “The Joker War” comes to a city-shattering conclusion as Batman battles The Joker in a brutal, no-holds-barred final duel! This is a fight 80 years in the making, and its outcome won’t just change Batman’s life—it will change Gotham City for years to come! The issue from writer James Tynion IV, with art by Jorge Jimenez, Guillem March, Carlo Pagulayan, and Danny Miki is available on October 6, 2020.
Detective Comics #1028
Spinning out of the events of “The Joker War” and Detective Comics #1027 comes a tale of the beginning of the end for Gotham City’s status quo. With tensions flaring and a new mayoral candidate making his anti-masked hero agenda known to the city, Batman and his allies are stretched thin to keep the peace. But just as things couldn’t look any worse, a string of gruesome murders has left a trail of the most corrupt in Gotham City losing their heads…literally. If Batman doesn’t quickly find the killer— the Dark Knight will be next. The issue is written by Peter J. Tomasi with art by Nicola Scott. Detective Comics #1028 will be available on October 13, 2020.
A new day dawns in Gotham City, and the horrific aftermath of “The Joker War” is only starting to unfold…how has The Joker’s rampage affected the citizens of the city? What legacy did the Clown Prince of Crime leave, and how it will hit the Dark Knight? And why does Cole Cash—a.k.a.—Grifter, now work for Lucius Fox?! Batman #101 from James Tynion IV and Guillem March will be available on October 20, 2020.
