6-Issue Series WIth Art By Jock Due in November
Posted by ICv2 on July 21, 2018 @ 1:45 am CT
The six-issue The Batman Who Laughs miniseries will launch in November and it will pit Batman against a sinister and potent foe from the Dark Universe, an evil amalgamation of himself and his greatest nemesis, The Joker. Bob Kane said that part of his inspiration for the creation of The Joker was the Paul Leni silent film adaptation of Victor Hugo’s The Man Who Laughs, a tragic story of a child who was mutilated by beggars to garner sympathy via his hideous, permanent grin, so it’s only fitting that this evil, heavy metal incarnation of Batman with his Joker’s grin and Bat ears should be known as “The Batman Who Laughs.” The popular Batman Who Laughs character has already inspired a resin model from Knight Models (see “Dark Knights Join Batman Miniatures Game”).
