CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Over the weekend, Warner Brothers dropped a multitude of film teasers and trailers for their upcoming DC movies at their virtual event, ‘DC Fandome’.
While you’ll have to wait to catch those new movies, there are plenty of new comic stories available right now.
That’s because today is New Comics Wednesday!
Available today is the first issue of the highly anticipated book for 2020 from DC, Batman Three Jokers.
Batman’s greatest foe has always been The Joker, and The Joker is a villain Batman can never quite get a handle on.
We find out in this issue there may actually be three different Jokers.
This comes as a follow up to the 2015 comic, Justice League #42, where Batman becomes briefly omniscient by occupying Metron’s Mobius Chair during the events of the Darkseid War. One of the questions Batman asks the chair is, “What’s the Joker’s true name?”
The answer, however, isn’t as simple as the question. Batman learns after asking that question, that there is not one, but three Jokers.
This question within an answer has haunted comic book fans for years, and today, we are one step closer to the big reveal!
From Marvel Comics, a brand new issue of The Amazing Spider-Man!

On the Indy side of comics we have a brand new Megaman!
