Today the latest issue of BATMAN "Death of the Family" lands in stores. Joker is back with a vengeance. His face has been cut off and with his return to Gotham, he's determined to get rid of all those close to Batman in order for him to be able to concentrate on his mission. He feels Batman has grown soft due to all his relations.
As we wait for comic shops to open, this is likely to be the first comic to read. If you didn't have enough of a reason to read it first, this following image might be the incentive you need.
Every once in a while, a mysterious benefactor emails a tease image in the wee hours of the night before new comic day. It's always a challenge in deciding whether or not to open the email as I'm not a big fan of spoilers myself. But some people do dig the spoilers. Check out this page from BATMAN #14.== TEASER ==
ONLY SCROLL DOWN IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE IMAGE!
The arc is called "DEATH of the Family." Could this actually be the end of this character? Would DC and Scott Snyder actually do that? You would think the answer is no but then again, they probably want to show that Joker is serious. And if no one dies, would that be letting the story arc title down?
It's not looking too good for Jim.
Now to wait for the comic shops to open.
