After teasing us with the images “Scars” and “Damaged Goods” DC Comics have now released four full pages from Batman: Three Jokers #1, featuring Batman, Batgirl, a newly transformed Red Hood (NOT the Jason Todd variety) and the quotes “Being Better” and “Irredeemable”. Jason Fabok’s art on these pages is, of course, stunning.
Check this out!
Comic fans everywhere have been anxiously awaiting Geoff Johns, Jason Fabok and Brad Anderson to explain themselves, when it was revealed that there wasn’t just one, but three versions of the Clown Prince of Crime that have bedevilled Batman and his crimefighting allies.

As a huge fan of Batman: The Killing Joke, I’m both nervous and excited. Should anyone even attempt to follow up that legendary tome? Only time will tell, but Jason Fabok’s art is on a par with Brian Bolland’s, and Geoff Johns has already written the sequel to Alan Moore’s epic Watchmen…
I guess the proof will be in the puddin’.
