In a little over three weeks DC will be publishing the penultimate chapter of the epic “Joker War” saga. Doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun? The good news is that we don’t have to wait ’til September 15th to get a look at Batman #99, as DC have given us a sneak peek!

The Joker has Gotham City in a complete state of chaos as his war against Batman careens headlong into a final showdown against The Dark Knight. But before Batman squares off against the Clown Prince of Crime, he’s going to need the help of all of his allies to regain control of the city! 

This issue has everything! Clownhunter, dishing out his own brand of justice! The return of Dick Grayson! Punchline! Harley Quinn! This issue will set up a finale you won’t believe.

“The Joker War” part five of six! Things have changed, as Batman realizes he can’t fight this war alone. He’s going to need help. Before he faces down The Joker, he must call up his trusty partner Dick Grayson! But can Dick reclaim his lost memories in time to join the battle?

As the reviewer of both Detective Comics and Nightwing, this sneak peek has really got me excited., particularly when reading cover blurb like, “Nightwing — The first Robin, the final ally.”

September 15th can’t come quick enough!
