Batman: Three Jokers has a release date! What an exciting time to be a comics fan! A question that fans have asked for years is finally going to get an answer. For a few years now Batman fans have asked Who are the Three Jokers? A recent interview gave us answers but today we get an official announcement from DC that gives a specific date to expect the first issue.
Here is the official release statement.
Batman: Three Jokers Announced for June!
Fan-Favorite Team of Geoff Johns, Jason Fabok and Brad Anderson
Deliver Triple the Fear, Mayhem and Madness in Three-Issue Miniseries
Following an exclusive interview with EW.com, DC is finally revealing to fans details on one of the most talked about and highly anticipated miniseries in comics, Batman: Three Jokers.
30 years after The Killing Joke changed comics forever, Batman: Three Jokers re-examines the myth of who, or what the Joker is, and what is at the heart of his ongoing battle with Batman. New York Times bestselling writer Geoff Johns and Eisner award-winning artist Jason Fabok reunite to tell the ultimate story of Batman and The Joker!
After years of anticipation, the epic story is finally here: find out why there are three Jokers, and what that means for the decades-long battle between the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. In this powerful, emotional story Batman, Batgirl and Red Hood – all past victims of the Joker – work together to solve a mystery, unlike anything they’ve ever faced before!
Here for the first time are the main covers to the full 3 issue series, beautifully drawn by Jason Fabok with colors by Brad Anderson. In addition, here’s a first look at some interior art by Fabok and Anderson for your viewing pleasure.
Batman: Three Jokers will be released as three 48-page issues in DC’s prestige format and will carry DC’s “Black Label” content descriptor (for readers 17+).
Issue #1 arrives in comic book stores and participating digital retailers on June 17, 2020.

I know I am excited for the next addition to not only the Batman story but also to the Black Label line. This series is set to expand on huge stories The Killing Joke and A Death In the Family. The names attached to this book, Geoff Johns, Jason Fabok, Brad Anderson… make the possibilities not only endless but needed.
