DC Announce New Joker Series “Killer Smile” from Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino

DC continues to add new titles to their Black Label, announcing today details of new miniseries JOKER: KILLER SMILE from writer Jeff Lemire (GREEN ARROW, Gideon Falls, Black Hammer) and artist Andrea Sorrentino (GREEN ARROW, Gideon Falls).

In JOKER: KILLER SMILE Lemire and Sorrentino will share their own interpretation of one of the darkest characters of the Batman mythos—the Joker. For years, the Joker has terrorized Gotham, facing off with Batman time and time again. But now he’s found a new adversary, one that can deliver him from the purgatory of Arkham Asylum and set his madness free once more—the very doctor tasked with treating him. As he gets his hooks deeper and deeper into the mind of his prey, Joker sets off a chain reaction of mayhem that will threaten to tear down not only Gotham City but the soul of this idealistic man, and his young family, too.

“Getting to work with my long-time collaborator Andrea Sorrentino on a Joker story is very exciting,” shares Lemire. “The Joker is an iconic character and we wanted to create something that challenges readers to look at him in a new and horrifying way.”

Sorrentino adds, “This story has pushed me as a creator to aspire to new heights in storytelling. That little spark of madness in the Joker gives me an opportunity to play with the pacing, the layouts and the storytelling in a way that few other characters would allow.”

JOKER: KILLER SMILE is a three-part story that will debut October 30, 2019, releasing every other month following.
