Part of DC’s “Year of the Villain” event, the comic is titled The Joker: Year of the Villain #1, and will be written by Carpenter and Anthony Burch, with art by Philip Tan and Marc Deering.

Director Todd Phillips revealed that his upcoming feature film about the Clown Prince of Crime’s origin won’t be drawing any inspiration from the comics.
