Jason Fabok shows off more Jokers for upcoming Batman: Three Jokers
Batman: Three Jokers artist Jason Fabok shares new artworks, promotional artworks this time for the miniseries he’s working with writer Geoff Johns.
EW reports that this massively-awaited miniseries will be released in a few months; particularly June 2020. This has been a dangling plot as early as New 52 and even reared its head back during DC Rebirth!
“The world doesn’t need just another Batman-Joker story,” Johns tells EW. “One of the reasons I’ve never done one before is because there are so many amazing ones, so I was only gonna do one if it was different and surprising and looked at the Joker and the meaning of the Joker and his effect on Batman and his family in a new way. We’re not introducing a multiverse of Jokers, we’re not out to change these characters forever, but we are turning over some rocks about these characters and their relationships.”

It’s also been revealed that Batman won’t be alone for this investigation of the three Jokers. Bat-Family members Jason Todd aka Red Hood and Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl will be joining the investigation. And rightly so because these two have experienced their lives shattered and ruined by the Joker.
“It goes back to the beginning when Batman first encountered the Joker, but it’s also The Killing Joke and A Death in the Family that speak to the book and that we’re building off emotionally,” Johns says. “Barbara and Jason have gone through so much, as has Bruce, and it’s really focused on healing, on scars and wounds and what that does to somebody. If you suffer some trauma, you don’t just get over with it and move on with your life, it changes who you are. Sometimes it changes you for the better, sometimes it changes you for the worse. You can heal right, and you can heal wrong. That’s really what the book’s about: Healing right, healing wrong, and surviving.”
