Fans clamoring for a more classic-looking Joker will be thrilled to see this sketch by artist Andy Clarke for the character's Villains Month special.

Coming in September, written by fellow artist Andy Kubert and drawn by Clarke, the Joker's spotlight issue will take the character back - way back - to before "any of the #1 issues" of the New 52. Don't expect every answer about the Clown Prince of Crime's background, though, as they say his origin will merely be "teased." However, a second Batman villain's origin will also show up in the issue, revealing a new tie to the Joker.
