The candle has burned out, the two-face Jack-o-lantern has finished rotting, and now the Dark Knight viral website WhySoSerious.com has a new game for Batman fans to play. The Joker has left the following letter up:


There are 49 clues for 21 cities around the United States. I've compiled all the clues together so that people in each of these cities can have quick and easy access to them. As of 1:30am eastern time on Halloween morning, there is no way to "send photos of what you find." I'm guessing that some input device will be unlocked once "daylight" hits. I'm assume that each location will feature a letter, and put all together, a message will appear. I could be wrong.

winking eye and the ghosts of '54 mutter "wat for next

the sky.
