@Babs: This isn't the Joker. It's Grant Morrison after he heard about the DC reboot.
Yep, that seems about right.

Looks like I was wrong when I said "DC won't reboot their titles cos they're proud of their history." No one likes change, especially when its something that's been one way for a long time. Comics and characters are always evolving and I, for one, am interested to see what DC has planned, See it the same way I do whenever a character gets a film treatment. Also not the first time DC has made a major change or rebooted their franchise. Be a good idea this time to employ someone to sit at the top and oversee every story they tell, to make sure they don't have to do this again.

first of all, why of all people does the joker need a redesign? if it looks idiotic i hope the creators burn.
second, 2 issue finale? that doesn't sound good. and it sounds like it ties in with my final point. 

i agree with several people on here, and the fact dc hasn't made a point to bring it up, is beyond annoying and not too promising, but this won't matter even a little come august if everything gets rebooted. no more damian as a violent robin who actually grows on you? no more tim being so good at what he does he can just be on his own and handle shit? and worst of all, after years of being robin and then nightwing, dick finally becomes batman and that gets flushed? bullshit.
also, i read somewhere recently bruce specifically told dick that he isn't allowed to deal with the joker because that's entirely his collar. 
so. much. pointlessness.

Very interesting cover. Curious to see how he'll be drawn in the interior artwork

@ArtisticNeedham: Snyder/JOCK're good about continuity so I'm hoping they'll keep the bullet hole and tongue. 
#73 Posted by JonesDeini (3505 posts) - - Show Bio
I wouldn't call this a "redesign" I feel that's a poor choice of words. If this is considered one then every artist would be responsible for "redesigning" characters. This simply Snyder/JOCK's take on the Joker for their run on Detective. Now as far as all the stories we're reading now possibly not mattering come September, completely dig what you're saying man, but that's not gonna stop me from enjoying good comics in the meantime. I might hate the new direction in September, hell, I might even like it. But the only thing I know right now is I love Snyder's Detective Comics, so I'm going to keep on doing that until he drops the ball monstrously or it stops being printed.

I still think nothing beats Morrison's/Daniel's Joker, but we'll see how this goes (in theory, I wont be reading it, ****ing reboots). Awesome cover all the same.

@JonesDeini: With DC rebooting things soon, probably, they will most likely loose both.
#76 Posted by Telcalipoca (963 posts) - - Show Bio

why redesign things if the universe is about reset?any effort to change or improve characters seems useless right now  

#77 Posted by JonesDeini (3505 posts) - - Show Bio
When you get down to it reading/buying anything outside of Flashpoint is pointless. But I guess I want to see how the stories I care about end. I'm hoping that stuff that sits in it's own corner like T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents/Xombi will be left untouched and continue after the reboot. I also have numbering OCD so I gotta finish the runs on the comics I'm reading until september.

I sure hope you are using terrifying as a description and not actually thinking people will be scared by this cover. To be perfectly honest it looks like someone just splattered paint on a wall and then added bats every where.

It looks creepy as hell.  Frankly at the moment I'm not a big fan of it. :/
