Batman #13 is to feature the return of the Joker, a teaser from DC Comics has confirmed. The announcement was accompanied by a promo illustration from series artist Greg Capullo.

The Caped Crusader’s arch-nemesis briefly featured in the relaunched Detective Comics, but has largely been absent from the ‘New 52’ universe, after a villain known as the Dollmaker carved off his face in Detective Comics #1.

Writer Scott Snyder will shine the spotlight on the villain during the forthcoming ‘Death of the Family’ story arc.  “This is Joker like you’ve never seen him before. He has a mission. He has a secret. And he has a serious axe to grind with Batman. It isn’t going to be pretty, but it’s going to be a wild ride,” said Snyder.

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
