Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo's New Joker Story, For Both Deluxe Hardcover and 80th Anniversary Special

The Joker 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 planned for the end of April will be following the pattern set by the other anniversary books, with multiple stories by multiple teams, with many different versions of the character, often spread across the decades, but also tying the book into the new DC Timeline.

And, as well as featuring Punchline's origin, it will also have a new Joker story by Batman Damned and Joker writer and artist team Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo. Which will now be added to the Deluxe version of their Joker story when it is published in May.
