November seems like it's a ways off but it'll be here before you realize it. That also means we'll be into the second month of the return of the Joker. While we don't always post the solicits to the coming issues (since you can find them at DCComics.com and elsewhere), the excitement over the upcoming Death of the Family arc is something we can't ignore.

Check out the cover to BATMAN #14:

BATMAN #14

Written by SCOTT SNYDER

Backup story written by SCOTT SNYDER and JAMES TYNION IV

Art by GREG CAPULLO and JONATHAN GLAPION

Backup story art by JOCK

Cover by GREG CAPULLO

Variant cover by TREVOR McCARTHY

1:100 B&W Variant cover by GREG CAPULLO

On sale NOVEMBER 14 • 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T

Combo pack edition: $4.99 US

• “DEATH OF THE FAMILY” continues!
• The Joker is back and somehow more sinister than ever! What caused this change? And can even Batman stop a Joker so driven and dangerous?
• And where is Alfred?
• Plus: In the backup feature, The Penguin is running out of options as he’s confronted by The Joker!

Hmm. You can check out the other solicts over at DC's blog HERE. With Joker targeting the individual members of the Bat Family, he's going to be busy and everyone will need to be on their toes.

What other Bat-titles in November are you looking forward to?

I like that the Joker is going to be involved with all of the Bat family. I am so excited!

Seconded. I love the arrangement of TVs and the Joe's Garage overall. Snyder's really going to knockthis one out of the ball park!

I gather Batwoman won't be involved in this one either, then?

I'm not digging the Leatherface Joker look. But, I've got enough confidence in Snyder and Capullo to make it work.

I gotta say the creative team at Batwoman are not doing that title any good by excluding it from bat-related crossovers.

#13 Posted by kennybaese (1151 posts) - - Show Bio

@the_fallen11: I think it makes sense given Batwoman's decision to work for Bones in the first arc. It pretty effectively severed her ties with the rest of the Bat family. All in all, I'm fine with the book being separate from the others.

But more importantly, Jock is drawing the Joker in the backups, which sounds just fantastic.

It's not going to get any new readers and that could be its down fall

LOVE that Jock is doing the back-up artwork. So rad.

#21 Posted by PortlandsBatman (208 posts) - - Show Bio

I was just looking at this on DC's website. I can't wait. Batman, in my opinion has the best stories.

#22 Posted by SupBatz (1815 posts) - - Show Bio

I guess Alfred being on screen means that the Joker knows Bruce's identity now... While that will definitely make for an interesting story I hope that Snyder approaches this in a way that doesn't make the Joker hard to write in the future.

#23 Posted by vernierhawk001 (539 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't wait. Def hoping to follow Batman and Nightwing during this showdown

#24 Posted by vicske77 (32 posts) - - Show Bio

Pretty excited!!! If the cover does the story any justice, then should be AWESOME!!!

#25 Posted by YMCMB (160 posts) - - Show Bio

Why would they have his face cut off just so he has to hold it on with a belt....whatever I guess we'll find out

I'm sure there is a reason. And I can't wait to find out what it is.

@InnerVenom123: I assumed that the New 52 made it so he didn't know anymore but I guess not.

Man, its the Batman story arcs that are becoming the great big thing of DC's New 52. This is looking awesome, but sadly it will be another one I'll have to wait for in TP compilation. But yes, i think I agree with some...this might be buh-bye for Damian.

#41 Posted by TheMadMonkey (148 posts) - - Show Bio

I've always believed that Joker (and Gordon) has known Batman's identity from almost the very start and thinks of it as the ultimate inside joke because he knows and the rest of the world is seemingly clueless.

I'm probably way off on this...but..

Since Bruce basically outed himself by telling everyone he's bankrolling Batman, Inc., perhaps Joker feels the "dead horse" has been beaten worse than the one he most likely has stored in the basement of the Ha-Hacienda and now it's time to deliver the punchline.

Sorry about those last three words...

#42 Posted by bennyq (410 posts) - - Show Bio

: so even though it's on the cover he doesn't know Alfred's connected to Batman?

#43 Posted by Eyz (3095 posts) - - Show Bio

As The Shaq woul d put it:

It's on!

#44 Posted by Mucklefluga (2609 posts) - - Show Bio

@JohnnyWalker: I know it's just a cover but still, why would Alfred be on there if he didn't know?

#45 Posted by JohnnyWalker (821 posts) - - Show Bio

@Mucklefluga: to make people interested enough to buy it? that is the sole purpose of the cover.

He didn't out himself. He dealt with that by spreading rumors in every venue possible to confuse the population.

The real reason Joker knows who Batman is, is because of Batman RIP.

This is so cool!! I can't wait!! :D

By seeing Alfred on the cover, I'm guessing the Joker knows Batman's secret identity.... :/
