When I was introduced to comics (which was not so long ago), I was given one piece of crucial advice: The author and the artist are much more important than the subject or protagonist. And yet, sometimes, you can have the best of both worlds.
Horror has been making its presence known in the comic industry as of late. Jeff Lemire brought us Animal Man, a horror story disguised as a superhero comic. Geoff Johns has brought us a new, self-aware Aquaman battling some of the most ferocious monsters to ever come from the bottom of the ocean. And now, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo will be adding to the bloodbath.
Scott Snyder (American Vampire, Swamp Thing, Severed) has had one hell of a run with Batman, and has recently wrapped up his story arc of the Court of Owls. If you have not been reading his works, you may change your mind soon. Snyder recently announced that for his next arc with Batman, he will be bringing back the Clown Prince of Crime.
That’s right, after more than a year of absence, Batman will once again take on his arch nemesis, the Joker.
But wait a minute, you say. This is a horror website. What does this have to do with horror? Check out this teaser image, and see if you still want to ask that question.
