Joker War is Coming to Batman Comics, And it Starts in April

Move over, War of Jokes and Riddles! Step aside, Justice/Doom War. The latest war to ravage the DC Universe is happening in Batman in 2020, and coincidentally coinciding with all those awards nominations, it's the Joker War! Revealed in April's solicits for Batman, the "Their Dark Designs" storyline will be ending, but a new storyline, called "Joker War," is on the way. And if you guessed that Gotham will never be the same, of course, you'd be correct. The solicit for Batman #93 also implies that Batman will face a loss even more devastating than Alfred.

Check out the solicits below.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
