October brings the conclusion of the “Joker War” storyline in Batman #100, and also… a new costume for the Dark Knight? Artist Jorge Jimenez’s cover for the issue shows a look that may remind readers of George Clooney from a certain 1997 movie.
We don’t yet know whether this is a temporary look or whether it will be sticking around for a while. What we do know is that Batman #100 will likely shed some light on the new character Ghost-Maker, first mentioned in James Tynion IV’s regular newsletters, and give us a confrontation between Batman and Clownhunter.
Here’s the official solicitation for the issue:
