Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok are sharing secrets - and concept art - from their upcoming Black Label title Batman: Three Jokers at New York Comic Con. Revealed during Johns' Friday spotlight panel, Fabok calls this "the ultimate Joker/Batman story."
"It's a totally different tone," said Johns. "We wanted to tell the best Joker story, the best Batman story we possibly could."
Johns said he approached Fabok about Three Jokers about two years ago, which would line-up with the first confirmation of the multiple Jokers in comic books - May 2016's DC Universe: Rebirth #1.
"I feel that this story has a magic to it and when we were writing it up on the whiteboard, I had chills," said Fabok.
"This whole book is a lot of work but I'm enjoying this book so much," said Fabok. "I love getting up every morning and working on this book."
For the heroes' designs, Fabok pulled together a lot of different influences to try to give a look that looks modern but also timeless.
Even Fabok's Batmobile designs combine a lot of different eras of the Batmobile according to the artist.
Batman: Three Jokers is a three-issue prestige format limited series anticipated to debut in 2019.
