I will be the first to admit – as a bit of an old-timer – that I’m still a little behind the times when it comes to social media. Even though I’ve been on Twitter since it started, I never really got it until recently. Writer Tom King has tweeted samples from the upcoming War of Jokes and Riddles, which starts in Batman #25.
The pages, featuring some gorgeous art by Mikel Janin and June Chung, show a typically disturbed and scary Joker, a bleeding Edward Nygma and a stellar Batman cover. Now these are the kind of tweets I live for!
According to DC Comics, the story will center around a battle of wits between the Joker and the Riddler. The tale is told in Batman’s own words, and takes place early in his crime fighting career.
