DC Comics unveiled new art from Three Jokers this week, previewing the forthcoming miniseries from writer Geoff Johns and artist Jason Fabok.
In addition, DC also noted that the revised release date for the first issue of the three-part miniseries (due to the COVID-19 distribution stoppage) is August 25. The book was originally slated to start in June. But let’s talk about this new art.
DC Comics shared four new Three Jokers pages, all of them unlettered. You can find them below, but before we get to that, I’d first just like to point out this is a big win for anyone out there who has long dreamed of seeing part of the Bat-family of characters walk into an aquarium. If this very specific dream is yours, enjoy friend, because your time is upon us.
The art by Fabok is colored by Brad Anderson. Three Jokers itself will be comprised of three (one for each Joker) 48-page comics in a prestige format. It will be published on DC’s Black Label imprint, taking up a plot point that John’s and Fabok dropped in their pre-Rebirth run on Justice League, in which Batman sits in Metron’s all-knowing Mobius Chair, asks it what The Joker’s true name is, and learns that there are indeed three Jokers. This new story exploring that plot point, however, seems to be largely independent of mainline DC continuity.
You can read the preview text for Three Jokers comic below, followed by the new art. Enjoy!
After years of anticipation, the epic story is finally here: find out why there are three Jokers, and what that means for the decades-long battle between the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. In this powerful, emotional story Batman, Batgirl and Red Hood—all past victims of the Joker—work together to solve a mystery unlike anything they’ve ever faced before!
