Don't get me wrong though this is probably the lamest version of Steve I've read in a very long time so we agree there. Because they try to make him seem so important without showing WHY he is so important and it doesn't help that Azz hasn't even gotten into the Diana and Steve fling either to back up Johns' shenanigans.
BTW I just read that Tony Daniel is FINALLY leaving 'tec
had a feeling you were going ot be happy lol
Finally got around to reading the Nite Owl issue. He might have been my least favorite Watchmen character. Anyways, Andy has always drawn more like Joe than Adam but I couldn't believe how much it looked like his father's stuff. Then I finally checked the credits and see Joe did the inks. lol. Shit looked good though. And I actually liked the Nite Owl this issue.
I think I would've liked this issue best of Before Watchmen so far if it wasn't for that horribly cliché abusive parent shit. I went "Ugh!" the second I saw it coming.
Yeah that shit has zero effect anymore.
THE JOKER Returns in October's "Death of the Family"
We've heard Scott Snyder talk about his affection and fascination with Batman. How does he feel about Joker? Snyder shared a few words on DC's blog.
Joker is my favorite villain of all time. Not just in comics. In everything - film, books, TV. He's the greatest, hands down. So this story is something extremely important and personal to me - something I've been building in my head ever since I started working in Gotham. Basically, this is my big exploration of the Joker, my ARKHAM ASYLUM or THE KILLING JOKE, only bigger in scope. Bottom line: it's the biggest, baddest, most shocking Joker story I could tell. This is Joker completely unleashed. He has been away for a full year planning this revenge, watching, plotting, setting things up. And now he's back. He has his traps set, his knives sharpened... And wait 'til you see him. Greg's sketches literally gave me chills. Point blank: This is Joker like you've never seen him before. He has a mission. He has a secret. And he has a serious axe to grind with Batman. It isn't going to be pretty, but it's going to be a wild ride. Thanks for taking it with us.
Make no mistake - this isn't just us using the Joker. This is a story we've been building for a year. This is the Joker unleashed.
This is the Joker on a mission. He had a reason for severing his face, for going away. & now he's back to wreak havoc like you've never seen
Bottom line: this isn't just @GregCapullo and I using the Joker for an arc..
This is our exploration of the Joker, and the biggest, baddest, darkest, most twisted story we could do w/him. The game-changer.
Scott's not the only one excited. Here's what Greg Capullo had to say:
When Scott told me that he'd written a Joker story for our next arc, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Talk about a dream come true! For me, the Joker is the ultimate rogue and the villain I most wanted to draw. I gotta tell you, after hearing what the story is about, this isn't a dream come true. It's a nightmare! A macabre and bloody, flesh crawling nightmare. We hope you'll have the nerve to face what's coming. Warning: It ain't for the faint of heart!
