If you have not been checking out the Tom King run of Batman in the new DC Rebirth series, you are missing out. He is very different from Scott Snyder, who is the imperial Batman writer of all time, but he knows how to hold his own in the universe.
Their next upcoming arc is the prelude to the earliest days of the Dark Knight of the conflict between The Joker and The Riddler. “The War of Jokes and Riddles” begins with issue #25 as part one of the upcoming story. Bruce Wayne narrates his first ever failure and what it unleased onto the world. The issue is released on Wednesday and King has shared some pages of the book.
With work done by Mikel Janin and June Chung, according to Newsarama, it is unclear which issues these pages come from within the series. So check out the pages and description below.
