DC Comics Gives Fans A First Look At The Upcoming – “BATMAN: Death of the Family Book and Joker Mask Set!”

DC Comics has ALLLLLL kinds of awesome planned to celebrate the Caped Crusaders 75th Anniversary and one of the things that I’m REALLY looking forward to comes out in September.  Today we get a sneak peek of the gruesome awesomeness  that is “Batman: Death of the Family Book and Joker Mask Set.”

bannerScott Snyder, JOCK, and Greg Capullo all in one place!  Yes, this story is packed with star power, was incredible and deserves this royal treatment.  Here is what DC had to say about it over on their website.

Every legendary hero has an opposite number. The other side of the coin. The darkness to their light. These reflections of evil, death and menace bring out the best in our champions – if they can survive the experience.

BATMAN VOL. 3: DEATH OF THE FAMILY, the complex, dangerous and disturbing masterpiece written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV with art by Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion and Jock, was first issued in hardcover featuring an acetate dust jacket showcasing the face of The Joker as it appeared on the die-cut covers of the “Death of the Family” comic books — and under that dust jacket lay the horror of The Joker’s skinless face!

It’s a must-have for any fan of Snyder and Capullo’s groundbreaking work!
