Return to “Mr. Smile’s Playhouse” in This First Look at Pages from Batman: The Smile Killer!
DC Comics has released a first look at the follow-up to Joker: Killer Smile, Batman: The Smile Killer! Also by the Eisner Award-winning Talent team of writer Jeff Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino. This prestige format one-shot epilogue takes a different look at the Clown Prince of Crime, through the eyes of a young Bruce Wayne and his favorite cartoon television show.
Bruce Wayne grew up watching The Mr. Smiles Show – and the show might have been watching him back! And not only was young Bruce watching, he was listening… listening as Mr. Smiles spoke across the airwaves only to him… Lemire and Sorrentino land one last gut-punch to the mythos of the Batman, turning it on its head in the most devastating trick The Joker has ever devised!
Batman: The Smile Killer is a $5.99 Prestige Format one-shot available on Tuesday, June 23, 2020. The book will feature DC’s “Black Label” content descriptor, appropriate for readers 17 and older.
