Marc Silvestri's Batman/The Joker: Deadly Duo Finally Announced at San Diego Comic-Con

We've been waiting a while. But today we got the first inkling…

We first reported that Marc Silvestri was working on a Batman comic back in 2014. But we understand it had already been a while in the telling.

Then it was to be part of DC Rebirth.
