Batman: One Bad Day is a series of oversized prestige-format comic books from DC Comics that each tell a different story of a different Batman villain, all in the thematic design of Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland. "One Bad Day" echoes the Killing Joke line (and uses the Killing Joke title font) where The Joker believes it only takes one bad day to turn someone into a monster, whether that's the Joker or the Batman.
And we have preview of not just one, but two of the books, double what the "approved" media have… 8-)
Batman: One Bad Day: Two-Face #1 by Mariko Tamaki and Javier Fernandez, and Batman: One Bad Day: The Riddler #1 by Tom King and Mitch Gerads.

(W) Mariko Tamaki (A/CA) Javier Fernandez
Two-Face has always been viewed as Batman's most tragic villain. If only Harvey Dent hadn't been scarred by acid, he could have continued his good work as D.A. in Gotham City and been Batman's greatest ally and friend…right? Or has Batman extended Harvey Dent too much grace in his multiple attempts at reform? He'll question himself as Harvey Dent is free once more, scarred but seemingly free of Two-Face's influence. But…when it's revealed Harvey Dent's father has been threatened to be murdered on his 88th birthday, will Two-Face be able to resist joining the party? From the bestselling creative team of Mariko Tamaki (Detective Comics, Crush & Lobo) and Javier Fernandez (Nightwing, King Spawn)!
