“Now a human-alien hybrid, Lex Luthor has made his appeal to the world, asking its citizens to embrace doom and give in once and for all to evil, humanity’s true nature. In exchange, he will grant them the tools to ascend to their ultimate selves. While some DC villains (and heroes) are willing to hear what ‘Apex Lex’ has to offer, the Clown Prince of Crime isn’t going to wait around until Lex gets to him. This puts The Joker on a mission to get his swagger back in a world gone bad by out-badding everyone else, proving that the greatest evil is always the one that leaves them laughing.”
Ok this sounds like gold already with just the head line. In case you haven’t guessed, I’m a bit of a John Carpenter fan. I am excited to see his tail unfold about a Joker in a world that is already full of villains. This story may be up there with Deadpool Kills the Marvel universe. The one shot comic will be released October 2nd and I can’t wait to pick it up. Attached too the book on writing duties is Anthony Burch, writer of Borderlands 2 and League of Legends. Art will be done by Philip Tan and Marc Deering.
