DC Releases a First Look at The Joker 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular

On June 9, some of the most talented names in comic books will gather together to pay tribute to the Clown Prince of Crime in a special 100-page must-have collector’s item, The Joker 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular. And DC has revealed a first look at some of the stories that will make up this landmark issue.

“WHAT COMES AT THE END OF A JOKE?”

Spinning out of the pages of his best-selling run on Batman, series writer James Tynion IV tells the origin story of the sensational new character Punchline! With stellar art from the acclaimed art team of Mikel Janín and Jordie Bellaire.

“BIRTHDAY BUGS”

The Joker turns birthday clown in this tale by Tom Taylor and Eduardo Risso. When The Joker goes to the home of an accomplice that did him wrong, he finds the man’s young son sitting alone picking apart bugs on his stoop. The boy assumes that the Joker is the clown for his birthday party and tells him that no one is coming. The Joker finds this unacceptable and goes around the neighborhood, “convincing” families to attend the birthday party and make it the best day he’s ever had. As for the boy’s father, he’s in for the worst moment of his life!

“KILL THE BATMAN”

In a story set in a not-so-distant future the Joker has finally made his dream come true of killing the Batman and we see the all the DC universe in mourning. But this act doesn’t provide the catharsis the Joker thought it would…he needs an encore…something at Batman’s public memorial perhaps? Written by acclaimed screenwriter Gary Whitta, popular writer/podcaster Greg Miller and rising star comic artist Dan Mora.

This is a must-have one-shot for any fan of The Joker; this 100-page tribute also includes stories from fan-favorite creators such as Scott Snyder and JOCK (The Batman Who Laughs, Batman: The Black Mirror), Denny O’Neil (Batman) and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Paul Dini, Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo (Joker), Tony S. Daniel (Batman) and more. The comic book also features a gallery of covers spotlighting key moments in The Joker’s history, along with a gallery of tribute from renowned comic artists such as Kelley Jones, Ivan Reis, Fiona Staples, John Romita Jr., and others. For the ultimate collector, eight variant covers will be available (check stores for details) celebrating eighty years of the Harlequin of Hate.

The Joker 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular will be available in open and operating comic book stores and participating digital platforms on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, for $9.99. To find the nearest open and operating store near you, check out DC’s Comic Shop Tracker.

Whoever it is, one victim will fall under their attack!

Punchline Delivers as Two DC Comics Get Reprints

With DC‘s recent reveal of the new character Punchline, fans have jumped at the chance to add Batman #89 (on sale February 19) to their pull lists to get any clues about this new villain and her connection to the Joker. And with more Punchline to come in Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3 (on sale February 26) the mayhem will only get bloodier as Punchline and the Clown Prince of Crime square off against Batman and the rest of the Bat-Family in a “Joker War” story arc beginning this May.

The debut of Punchline, the Joker’s deadly new henchperson, has led to pre-on sale sellouts of both Batman #89 and Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3—and now both issues are rushing back to press for second printings!

Batman #89’s second printing is part four of “Their Dark Designs,” written by James Tynion IV with art by Carlo Pagulayan, Guillem March, and Danny Miki. This issue features an unnamed cameo appearance by Punchline, and will arrive in stores with a recolored version of its original cover by Tony S. Daniel.

Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3’s second printing covers the confrontation between Lex Luthor and The Joker, with help from Punchline and Mercy, as the conflict between the forces of Perpetua and the Batman Who Laughs reaches the boiling point. Written by Tynion IV with art by Steve Epting, this issue will arrive in stores with a recolored version of its original cover by Epting.

Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3
